Morgan Stupidly Pulls Out In Front Of Peugeot, Crash Ensues 17

What we have here is a Morgan hastily and imprudently pulling out of a junction; Peugeot 206 comes in hot, driver of the Peugeot hits brakes and horn at the same time, but to no avail.

While that Pug’s momentum may have had a lot to do with this accident, it’s possible that less honking and more steering could have made a difference in the end.

According to the description of the video, the speed limit on this particular patch of road is 50 mph (80 km/h) – though it’s really hard to tell if that 206 was doing more than 50. Let’s stick with innocent until proven guilty, shall we?

The person who caught the incident on camera states that the ‘Morgan tried to accelerate to get in front of the Peugeot. However the Peugeot was going down hill, and the Morgan was trying to speed up a hill, so the momentum was on neither of their sides.”

While we really wish the driver of the French hatchback hadn’t planted one of his hands on the horn under heavy braking, the person behind the wheel of the Morgan is clearly the one who’s at fault for this accident. He’s also lucky that 206 didn’t end up on top of him.

Peugeot have opened the order books for the new 208 Black Edition.

Priced from £14,595 ($18,200 at current exchange rates), the supermini can be had in three exterior colors: Nera Black, Bianca White and Hurrican Grey.

Moreover, it’s also fitted with a set of 16-inch Titane gloss black alloy wheels with laser engraving, and gets a glossy black look for the grille and side mirror casings.

Inside, drivers get to enjoy the 7-inch multifunction color touchscreen that adds functions such as Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, MirrorLink, Bluetooth and DAB digital radio.

Powering the special edition 208 is the 1.2-liter PureTech petrol engine that produces 82 PS (81 HP) and is said to return 62.8 mpg UK (52.3 mpg US / 4.5 l/100 km) combined.

Launching the Peugeot 208 Black Edition in the UK isn’t the brand’s only announcement, as they have also signed Catie Munnings as a brand ambassador. The 19-year old is the current FIA Ladies European Rally Champion, and she became the first female British driver to win a European Rally title in almost half a century, last year, behind the wheel of the Peugeot 208 R2.

As part of representing the French brand, Munnings got to check out the special edition supermini, saying that it “is a brilliant car” that “looks and feels great”, and it is “basically any young person’s dream car.”

Catie is no stranger to the Peugeot 208 either, having driven it extensively in rally car guise, and the new Black Edition gives buyers more choice with a striking but sophisticated styling package, and the latest connectivity technology“, added Peugeot UK’s Managing Director, David Peel.
