After the first 400 Renault 5 Turbos were built in-line with Group 4 regulations, Renault first introduced the R5 Turbo 2 in 1983,
It was more production-friendly, sharing many more components with the front-engined Gordini Turbo - including high cost items like the dashboard. It was almost as fast and just as exciting as the Group 4 car, but it cost Renault less to build and enjoyed a much lower sticker price in the showroom. Seeing one today is quite a rare sight, if even achieved. Undoubtedly these iconic hot hatches have now earned a legendary status due to their heritage, and will continue to be appreciated for many more years to come.
It’s difficult not to be impressed with this vehicles presence, especially one in this colour. Finished in the rarely seen pearl white, this example comes with contrasting gold TRX alloys. The previous owner had understood its value, so invested in a professional repaint in its most recent life, leaving a finish that is spectacular throughout.
The Renault’s cabin is still quite fresh, especially when considering its era. Within its lifetime it’s evident a previous owner has had the two seats re-trimmed in period black vinyl, adding a break from the light coloured cabin. The remaining trim and carpets are in very good overall condition, and stand as a testament to the previous owner.
This example comes with its original TRX gold alloys, which are surprisingly still wrapped in period metric tyres all round.
This particular example was brought into the U.K in 1985 and converted to right hand driver for its first English owner. After thoroughly enjoyed the vehicle for a number of years, he sold the vehicle to its second owner who owned the vehicle until 2001.
It has been in the company of its last owner since 2001, and was recently re-commissioned with a fresh repaint, wheel refurbish and service. The spare wheel is unused and still boasts its original tyre, with the period gold alloys still boasting their 'metric' period tyres. There are some previous mot certificates, a print out of a turbo exchange from ‘Turbo technics’, an original Turbo 2 manual and other associated paperwork.
