In 1979, Renault show the prototype of the R5 turbo for the first time at the Tour d'Italie rally. The car has a very sporty look, and even if the general shape of the small R5 can still be identified, the turbo version is much more radical. The goal of Renault was to launch a powerful and very good handling car, that can easily evolve into a racing car. The base is the Renault 5, a small city car, that is fitted with an extra wide body, big wheels, and last but not least, an engine in the unusual rear central position. So as to develop the car quickly and to lower the develoment cost, the engine will come from the R5 alpine, on which a Garrett T3 turbocharger is fitted. The power is now 160 HP for a weight just under 1000 Kg.
The street version is launched in 1980 with the R5 Turbo 1 that immediately becomes a myth. The dashboard of the first series is specific, and the Turbo 1 is produced in limited quantity. In 1983, the R5 turbo 2 replaces the turbo 1, but receives a normal dashboard and looses its alloy doors.

The car we offer is a very desirable 1982 R5 Turbo 1 with only 28.500 Km from new. The car has been sold new in Italy and has been the property of a Renault dealer from 1986 until 2008. The dealer has kept the original papers showing the car as a first hand. It was displayed in his showroom and driven quite a few but regularly. It has been perfectly maintained with service done each year despite the low mileage done with the car.
The car is presently in a stunning original condition, never been damaged nor modified. The turbo 1 is the much sought after, because it is the rarest as only 1800 units have been produced. It is a unique opportunity to buy a so low mileage car, wih a clear history, and in a superb original condition.
This R5 Turbo 1 is available in Paris with Italian registration.
