1985 Renault 5 turbo2,Blue,37,391 miles from new in superb condition throughout.Originally suppied new in Japan.

In keeping with the history of it's life in Japan this example, although rust proofed as new from the factory there remains no corrosion at all to the underside. As a car with some 58,000km when we bought it in 2010 it had been kept very original, but over the last years of it's life with it's owner hadn't be used due to illness. Intending to keep this rare car for ourselves and due to not having any access to parts in Japan, we sent it to the UK. The first thing we did was to completely replace the entire fuel system or have components overhauled where new parts are no longer available. The fuel tanks were removed and professionally cleaned and new components fitted, from pumps, custom made hoses, AN inline filters, warm up regulator right down to the tachometric relay.
We renewed all the ignition service items, leads, and also replaced old hoses with silicone replacements. Needless to say the entire car was checked over mechanically and extensively serviced, but it's notable that there was nothing we encountered that was seized at all, no broken bolts, etc. Even the brake calipers, although rebuilt, weren't corroded!
With the engine and mechanicals taken care of, fueling & boost set to factory specification it now started on the first turn of the key.
Seats, steering wheel are original . Carpets had become stained and aged and like all Turbo II's the head lining had long since disintegrated, so we had new matching colour carpet & headlining professionally trimmed & fitted. The car came to us with the Devil exhaust fitted and Panasport 2 piece split rim wheels, but we felt it looked much better on Minilites of special deep-dish design, specified precisely for the Turbo II, so a new set were sourced whilst still available. Other modifications we've fitted have been a new fan for the front mounted radiator (With fan over-ride switch), a boost gauge to ensure it's running at correct (0.85 bar) boost and a fire extinguisher.John Price Rallying health inspection and tune also carried out.
For the last year or so, it's been UK registered & stored in a secure heated facility in Leicestershire when not in use but driven (sensibly) at least once a month in order to keep it in fine fettle, although it's not been used when there is salt on roads, nor rain.

Currently stored in a dehumidified and heated storage.
