In 1980 was presented the Renault 5 Turbo. It was a model that was based on the body of the Renault 5 standard, but with a completely different aesthetics and mechanics. It was a product specifically designed, it was designed from its inception as a race car. His main qualities were the engine located in central position and rear-wheel drive .
Aesthetically aesthetic modifications to the model number was more than evident, as his body had some fiberglass panels with more bulky steps of wheel. But by the end of 1982 it was time to meet his siucesor, which they called Renault 5 Turbo 2 , which was approved for participation in the Group B rally .
And the R5 Turbo 2 is precisely what Davide Cironi brings us this week to analyze in considerable detail. Highlights the qualities of this hatchback, which he defines as ‘the French terror group B’, but confirms that it is a car you need to take in fine shape if you will not pass a bad time .
However does not save praise to describe the sound of its engine , which qualifies as ‘intoxicating’, while enjoying the exhaust backfiring. Among its disadvantages, it ensures that the brakes are not up to the circumstances, while the engine heat invades the cabin in a way that undermines health.
Anyway ensures that lead to Renault 5 Turbo is a unique experience, even at legal speeds on public roads. But it is best that you see in the video attached below, but have time, I recommend you not book for the weekend, and worthwhile. While it is in Italian, Davide manages to convey his enthusiasm beyond language barriers.
