Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.05) based on 608 votes

How much for a 24year old car!?!. if this is your first reaction. then this probably isn't the car for you.

This is my 1989 Renault 5 GT Turbo. which I have owned since august 2005. since then it has been my pride and joy. and I have put more time. money and effort into it than I want to even remember.

The car is modified but to a very high standard. running approximately 240bhp at a conservative estimate as it hasn't been rolling roaded for a couple of years and has had some big modifications since the last power run of 217bhp and 256lb/ft torque. this was with the standard cam. a different water meth setup. and a worn turbo and standard manifold. not bad for an old 1. 4 pushrod 8v engine hey.

Few things that jump out are the colour. which is custom. the clio 16v dash conversion. which everything works. the brakes. which are epic. and the engine. which is far from standard. and running over double the power that it was born with. oh and the front bumper exit screamer pipe. if the flames out the actual exhaust dont scare you. the noise from the screamer will! Launch control sounds like a barrage of shotguns. and the huge flames singe anyone standing within 6 feet

Approx 5 years ago. I had the car stripped. any rusty or damaged panels replaced. and resprayed inside. outside. underneath in a custom copper gold colour by a well known bodyshop who specialise in immaculate paintwork.

The engine has many modifications which I will briefly cover below. but its basically a 1. 4 turbo. running a variable geometry turbocharger. mappable electronic ignition. making 27psi of boost by 3000rpm and holding it to the redline of 7000rpm

This car is really really savagely quick. it will do 0-60 in under 4. 5 seconds. and will level peg with a CBR600 to 100mph. I know everyone has a mate who had one that was 300bhp. but in reality it never was. this is circa 240bhp and its an absolute animal. will break traction in the damp in 5th gear on high boost. so be warned

Car has been triple featured since i've had it. Performance french cars. Redline and Fastcar magazine. I have all the magazines to go with the car. and photo DVD's of the shoots if required


There is much more  that i've forgotten. or subconciusly blocked out so I dont remember how much it cost

I have a box file full of history. reciepts. old MOT's. power graphs etc that will come with the car

It has an oil change every 12 months. or 2000miles. whatever is sooner. using only motul 10W50 fully synthetic oil and genuine parts. Other things get replaced every 2 years like plugs. brake fluid etc. I'm fussy when it comes to cars so only use the best out there.

I'm only advertising this car due to low usage as I have a few other boys toys. I've done 150miles in the last 2 years. MOT history will prove this.

I'm not looking for swaps. part exchanges. selling to foreign countries. scams. people that just want 'a go' etc. No test drives without insurance and the money in my hand!

Test drives by apointment only. viewing by apointment only. If it doesn't sell. it doesnt bother me. i'll keep it. so no low ballers please. and if you have an opinion that its an old renault so only worth 2k. thats fine. but i'm not really too worried about your opinion thank
