1985 Renault R5 Turbo II

The Renault R5 Turbo (also known as the 5 Turbo) was a high-performance hatchback automobile produced in the early 1980s. The car was designed for rallying, but was also sold in road-going guise. Around 250 units of the Turbo II were imported to the US market, and around a dozen of them are still in circulation.

The R5 Turbo was powered by a mid-mounted 1397 cc Cléon turbocharged engine placed behind the driver in mid-body in a modified Renault 5 chassis. The engine developed a total of 158 HP. The car made the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 6,7 seconds and can hit a top speed of 126 mph.

The Turbo II version was introduced using stock Renault 5 parts replacing many of light alloy components in the original 5 Turbo version.
