*We had 1.01 a couple of years ago.

My brother came to visit for the weekend and having flown here he hired a car. He booked a Golf sized manual but in the event wound up with a seven seater, diesel, automatic Peugeot 5008. Which brings us to a French peculiarity.

Voici un Peugeot 5008. Il est un garçon. ( Here is a Peugeot 5008. He is a boy.)

Mais....(but)

Voici une 508. Elle est une fille. (Here is a 508. She is a girl)

Yes, that’s right. When PSA’s EMP2 platform is used to make a 5008 rather than a 508 it undergoes a sex change.

Not many know that.
