Nasim has opened Peugeot Blue Box Butterworth, its largest outlet to-date outside the Klang Valley. Peugeot Blue Box Butterworth, which is owned and operated by CS Euro Auto Sdn Bhd, is the first of seven new outlets that will be opened by Nasim this year.

Built at a cost of RM4 million, the 28,000 sq ft facility is a 3S centre equipped with four private customer lounges and one mini-theatre entertainment room. The service centre has six service bays with the capacity to service up to 25 cars a day.

In conjunction with the outlet opening, Nasim officially unveiled the 308 Griffe, a limited edition 308 with extra accessories that we showed you last month. Buyers of the five-door hatch get a GTI rear spoiler, carbon fibre effect bodykit, 17-inch five twin-spoke “Dark Stromboli” alloys in gunmetal and directional smoked bi-xenon headlamps

Inside, there are semi-bucket leather/fabric combination seats, complete with red stitching – the last also dresses up the handbrake handle, steering wheel and gear lever. White instrument dials and special Griffe carpet mats (yes, with red stitching) are also on.

No changes to the running gear, with the 156 hp 1.6 litre THP 156 coninuing as is, mated to a six-speed automatic. As for pricing, the 308 Griffe is listed at RM132,888, on-the-road with insurance.
