1989 Renault 5 GT Turbo - A Remarkable 27,000 Mile Car For Sale
My exceptional 1989 Renault 5 GT Turbo is for sale.
A wonderful original car which I found in Southern Japan last year alongside a 21 Turbo, so I personally imported both as these special Renaults held some great memories.
It has only 26,981 miles on the clock which is certified but also obvious from the incredible condition inside, outside and underneath. Original and completely un-modified, it has never been exposed to the European climate or our salted roads and was clearly lightly used.
I could go on and on but we all know how much fun these quick and compact little cars are and how special they feel today. It certainly makes me feel pretty youthful and attracts lots of smiles and positive attention on the road. So a few facts;
Letter from Renault UK and original engine bay plaque fitted by Renault Japan confirming it was delivered new in December 1989.
Left-hand Drive, Phase 2 model.
Identical Spec to European models.
Certified very low mileage.
Zero rust or corrosion.
Original paint in superb condition.
Completely original throughout, right down to the radio, Renault overmats & unused Michelin 195 section spare.
Spare keys & original owners manual in English.
Pristine original Speedline wheels with 4 new Falken tyres.
I have recently spent £750 on a thorough service, brakes & MOT, so it is 100% ready to enjoy.
Please call for a chat if you want to know more. It is clearly an unrepeatable car so a few traders and auction houses have been in touch suggesting it would fetch £18,000+ in their hands (especially in Europe). Easy to believe with the way hot hatch prices are going and the rarity of a car with this mileage and condition, but I am open to a serious offer on my price of £14,950.
It is kept in a well-lit, heated garage for viewing (with tea, biscuits & a chat about the good old days provided), and I could assist you with delivery arrangements throughout the UK and Europe as I know some trusted road transport people.
It will be entered in the CCA Auction at the Practical Classics Show Sale, 23rd/24th March if not sold prior.
