2010 marks the 200th birthday of Peugeot, the 80th birthday of Pininfarina, and the 5th birthday of the UK based Peugeot 406 Coupé Club. To celebrate these anniversaries the 406 Coupé Club will be holding a special ‘birthday’ meet on Sunday, 23rd May, in the grounds of the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, in the heart of the New Forest National Park.
The Peugeot 406 Coupé is the product of a joint collaboration between the French car firm Peugeot and the Italian designers Pininfarina, which has resulted in a highly successful and multi award winning modern classic. The anniversary meet will be the perfect opportunity for owners, past and present, to come along and meet other members, whilst exchanging knowledge and chat of what is fast becoming a rare car.
David Bater of the 406 Coupé Club said: “This special birthday meet at Beaulieu is shaping up to be the biggest ever, even beating the French 406 Coupé club’s record. We already have over 70 cars signed up, coming fromFrance and Holland as well as theUK, and are hoping the final total may reach 100.”
