EQUIPMENT
Numbered plaque (No. 869). Front fog lights. Renault 5 Alpine steering wheel. Ashtray. Cigarette lighter. Lockable glove compartment.

EXTERIOR
The audacious exterior of this rare eighties super-hatch is finished in bright red with the correctly contrasting bumpers. The bodywork remains to a very presentable standard with the satin trim appearing as new throughout. Manufactured in early 1981 this R5 is number 869 of less than 1. 00 ‘Turbo 1s' produced over just three years.

INTERIOR
The Bertone-styled cabin remains in very good order. The seats present extremely well with minimal signs of use. and the carpets throughout are brand new. The dash and fascia are also in great condition and present with a marvelous original finish. The door cards. steering wheel. and gearshift gaiter are not the factory standard although correct items are still manufactured by a specialist company in France.

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

Neatly enclosed behind the front seats and hidden away by the freshly carpeted panels the engine itself appears in fine order and was most recently serviced in August 2015 at 72. 44km.

WHEELS. TYRES & BRAKES
The Turbo sits on original alloys in grey. They each present extremely well with absolutely no curb marking or milking beneath the lacquer to speak of. They are shod in a matching set of period Michelin TRX tyres with plenty of tread remaining.

HISTORY FILE
The Renault was first registered on 20th July 1981. It was imported into the UK from Switzerland in 2015 and has since been MOT'd and UK registered. Present in the history file are the V5C and MOT certificate. plus maintenance records dating from 1998. The service history is as follows:
