  • Renault 5 turbo red sold
  • Similar stock

SOLD: A rare 1981 R5 Turbo, with just 45k miles.

EQUIPMENT
Turbo alloys, Numbered plaque on dash, Dash clock, Front fog lights, Ashtray, Cigarette lighter, Lockable glove compartment, Radio delete, Piped R5T overmats.

EXTERIOR
The audacious exterior of this rare eighties hot hatch is finished in red with correctly contrasting bumpers, side skirts, and door mirrors in satin orange. The bodywork remains in great driving condition with the satin trim presenting as new throughout. The lights retain a clear and moisture-free appearance, and all panels line up just as they should. Smaller details such as the badges present well with only light patination to report. The grille that sits below the rear bumper is also present with the car.

INTERIOR
The Bertone-styled cabin remains in very good order and the alluring striped seats present extremely well. The carpets throughout are like new having recently been fitted; they are protected in the footwells by a fresh set of piped overmats. The dash, fascia, and switchgear are also in great condition with a nice factory finish. Original Turbo steering wheels are sometimes replaced with the later three-spoke design of the Turbo 2, so it's nice to see the correct style in situ.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The centrally mounted 1397cc unit in the Turbo was derived from the Renault 5 Alpine, known as the Gordini in the UK. Using a modified Lancia Stratos as a test bed, Renault began work on increasing the engine's output from a normally aspirated 93hp to a turbocharged 158hp; the result is what's found here.

Hidden away by the freshly carpeted panels, the turbocharged 1.4 remains in fine fettle. Idling up to temperature nicely the engine delivers fabulous acceleration on test, with an eager growl and intoxicating turbo whistle. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a siken five-speed transmission. The car has just been serviced at the current mileage for the new keeper's peace of mind.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The car sits on original Turbo alloys finished in red. Each wheel presents in very condition with few signs of age or wear. They are shod in a matching set of period Michelin TRX tyres with plenty of tread remaining.

HISTORY FILE
The Renault was first registered in July 1981. It was imported into the UK from Switzerland in 2015. Present in the history file you'll find UK reg docs, service and labour invoices, plus maintenance records dating back to 1998 at 32,929 miles. Unfortunately the car's original service history was lost at some point in the nineties, but a replacement record is present. The entries are at close mileage intervals and are detailed below. A fresh service has just been carried out at the current mileage.
