This 80’s cult car is certainly one of the most spectacular models ever produced by Renault. When the Renault 5 Turbo was presented for the first time at the Paris Motor Show in 1980, the public and the press were extremely enthusiastic.
The production was fairly complex because several parties were involved. This is how Renault built the body, which was then adapted by Heuliez. These modifications concerned the extension and widening of the body and the installation of an aluminum roof and doors. Then the cars were delivered to Alpine which was responsible for the further reduction. There a 1.397cc four-cylinder mid-engine was placed with a thick Garrett T3 turbo so the power was as much as 160hp. This resulted in a top speed of more than 200 km / h and an acceleration from 0 to 100 in 6.9 seconds.
The Renault 5 Turbo had 33 top 10 positions in the WRC championship in the period 1981 – 1986, with a first place in Monte Carlo and the Tour de Course. The Renault 5 Turbo also won a total of 16 victories, in others championships in Europe.
This car was delivered new in Belgium, and stood at the car show in Brussels in 1982, the then owner was Renault De Wit dealer in Kortrijk. In 1993 Renault dealer Bart Landeloos bought the Turbo with about 20.000 km on the clock, both companies had not registered this car and drove only on dealer plates. In 2002, this Renault 5 was purchased by the third owner and provided with a Dutch license plate, this fan has owned and cherished this Turbo for the past 16 years. This Renault 5 Turbo 1 has only driven 38.683 km from new, making this car absolutely unique.In short, a pure Renault 5 Turbo from the first series looking for the next enthusiast / collector, a detailed description of the history and a mileage overview is present in our sales file.
