Renault 5 Turbo 2 260cv - 1983
Without doubt the most adored car of the brand with the diamond. And for good reason, it represents everything that has disappeared in the automobile today. The Renault 5 Turbo 2 was born at a time when engineers lived by the words "If we can, we do". This red one is more than in perfect condition: it has been improved to give it a little taste of Group B. And yes, this legend can give lessons to many sports cars 30 years younger.Benzin
