The 406 Coupe was unveiled officially at The Paris Motor Show in 1996. The Coupe was an instant success and won many awards including "The Most Beautiful Coupe of the World 1997" at Milan, "Car Design Award 1997" at Turin and "The Most Beautiful Car of the Year 1998" at the Festival of Chamonix.
Having originally entered production with a 3.0 L (194 bhp) engine. This was later replaced with newer more powerful engines of the same capacity. The new 3.0 L engine developed 210 bhp. Whilst the stunningly beautiful external shape remained the same, some interior changes were made, although not all revamped models were made available in all parts of the world.
By the end of the 406 Coupe's production, records indicate that a total of 107,633 were produced at Pininfarina of which 10,709 were imported into UK market.
This stunning example of the beautifully proportioned Pininfara designed Peugeot 406 3.0lt 210bhp Coupe, has only had 3 owners from new, and covered a mere 67,000 miles. Both inside and out, the condition is excellent, and all fitted equipment is said to work, including the Climate Control system (with A/C), and the Factory Satnav system. It has Peugeot over-mats on the floors, cruise control, and 4 good Avon Tyres. There is a substantial amount of history from new. The car has also been fitted with a Prins LPG gas system. This system does not decrease the power output of the engine, but does cut fuel costs dramatically. Prinz is the "Rolls Royce" of LPG systems, and changes automatically between petrol and LPG. Driven sensibly the car returns the equivalent of about 50mpg and has range in excess of 500 miles. A new standard exhaust and a new radiator have been fitted very recently. It is said to be the definition of a "Grand Tourer", and ready for immediate use. Fitted with a Bury hands-free telephone connection.
