Description

We are delighted to present this ‘no expense spared’ Renault 5 Turbo 2 that has been lovingly and painstakingly restored and rebuilt to offer exceptional, competition level performance and handling.

This Renault Turbo 2 was bought by a close friend of Car-iconics Ltd back in 2012 as a running and MOT’d car in largely original condition.  Once back in the UK the car was stripped to bare metal and this incredible project was started.

Supported by a full photographic record, the car was slowly and painstakingly restored, including strengthening of the chassis largely to Tour De Corse specification to take not only the increased engine performance but also the uprated suspension, competition size wider wheels and sticky tyres.

All the mechanical elements of the car have been rebuilt and upgraded including the engine, gearbox and suspension.

A true Group B homage which delivers the most visceral driving experience! If you are looking to own one of the most iconic cars from the 1980’s with performance to match its Marcello Gandini designed looks, then look no further than this exceptional car.
