The Renault 5 Turbo or R5 Turbo is a high-performance hatchback automobile launched by the French manufacturer Renault at the Brussels Motor Show in January 1980. The car was primarily designed for rallying, but was also sold in a street version. A total of 4987 R5 Turbos were manufactured during a six year production run.
This Renault 5 is presented in beautiful condition having covered a mere 2,000 miles since a restoration in 2009. Offered in white, this iconic turbocharged car is accompanied by an impressive history file of paperwork and invoices. The car is offered to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until November 2019. Also contained within the history file is the paperwork for a 'Turbo Technics' stage one modification and Scorpion exhaust. Renault 5’s in this condition are becoming increasingly more difficult to find and this remarkable pocket rocket will surely put a smile to any buyers face.
