EXTERIOR
With livery evocative of Jean Ragnotti’s iconic Tour de Corse-winning car, this unrepeatable TDC recreation is quite simply stunning from every angle. The exterior finish remains to a very high standard, the bodywork and decals all presenting really well with only minor imperfections to report on close inspection. As per competition cars of the day this Turbo 2 is equipped with a strengthened chassis, TDC front bumper, polycarbonate windows, etc., etc. Originally built and upgraded to meet competition regs by renowned specialists John Price Rallying in Hereford, this particular Turbo 2 is certainly no garage queen. Ready to be driven hard and very much enjoyed, this outstanding example offers a unique opportunity to own a competition-ready yet fully road legal R5T2, and one of only a handful of Turbos to ever exist in right-hand drive.

INTERIOR
Sporting a custom aluminium roll cage, lightweight Sparco bucket seats, Sabelt harnesses, carbon door cards and a plumbed-in fire extinguisher, the purposeful cabin does not disappoint. Pleasingly the R5 dash and centre console are still retained, albeit slightly modified, and remarkably the original fuse box cover is also still in place (these are often lost or damaged). An array of specialist performance gauges provide the driver with plenty of feedback for more spirited driving, while footwell carpets serve as a reminder that this is still a road car. Blue carpeting extends to the firewall and Tour de Corse engine cover, all in great condition.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The mechanical specification detailed below is what really sets this one apart. In 2009 the engine was fully rebuilt by John Price Rallying to 1565cc Maxi specification. Equipped with a larger T3 turbo, custom Zorstec exhaust, genuine Tour de Corse manifold and oil cooler, the car also boasts a genuine Tour de Corse close-ratio gearbox, as sourced and fitted by JPR in 2009. The engine specification is as follows:

• C1J engine rebuilt to Maxi spec 1565cc
• 77mm bore, forged pistons and steel liners, new crankshaft, sodium filled valves
• Tour de Corse oil cooler with remote filter
• PWR charge cooler (front mounted radiator)
• EARL water injection with MF2 controller
• T3 turbo charger
• Tour de Corse manifold
• Zorstec custom exhaust
• Screamer pipe
• Turbosmart External wastegate
• Aeromotive A1000 fuel pump
• Aeromotive fuel rail
• Aeromotive fuel filers with Aeromotive billet brackets
• Fusion fabrications inlet
• Fusion fabrications plenum
• Cosworth Bosch dark green injectors
• HKS Filter
• Electronic fuel injection
• Adaptronic ECU mapped by EFI Parts
• Tour de Corse close-ratio gearbox
• ZF limited-slip differential
• AP twin plate clutch

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Filling those boxy arches are genuine Compomotive Speedline wheels, 7.5 x 15 ET2 at the front front and 9.5 x 16 ET45 at the rear. All are in perfect condition and all are wrapped in matching Toyo 888 tyres. The car is further equipped with Bilstein coilovers front and rear.

HISTORY FILE
This rather special and unique Turbo 2 was first registered in October 1983. It was originally supplied to John Price Rallying in Hereford, who under license from Renault at the time, not only converted the car to right-hand drive but also carried out the necessary ‘Tour de Corse’ upgrades to meet competition regulations. In more recent years the Renault was further upgraded according to the previous owner’s exacting requirements, including having the engine rebuilt to 1565cc Maxi spec. This example also boasts a number of genuine and rare Tour de Corse parts including the manifold, oil cooler, and close-ratio 5-speed gearbox. It has been magazine featured and is accompanied by a detailed history file. Under current ownership the car has been looked after by renowned performance specialists, Abbey Motorsport. It was last serviced and MOT’d in November 2020.
