Renault 5 Turbo II 1984 – SPRZEDANE

Rajdowa legenda Renault 5 Turbo II żyje do dziś. Amerykańskie czasopismo motoryzacyjne Sports Car International w 2004 umieściło je w zestawieniu 10 najlepszych samochodów sportowych świata. Nic dziwnego: turbodoładowany i umieszczony centralnie silnik, pięciobiegowa manualna skrzynia, niezależne zawieszenie i hamulce tarczowe na obu osiach czynią z tego małego i lekkiego (około 970 kg) samochodu prawdziwego pogromcę ciasnych winkli. Jego następca to kultowe Renault Clio V6. Egzemplarz wystawiony na aukcji to szczególny przypadek fabrycznego upgrade’u, dodano mu bowiem 27 dodatkowych koni mechanicznych. Samochód przeszedł kilka modyfikacji, otrzymał m.in. zjawiskowe 3-częściowe felgi Gotti. Unikatowy kolor nadwozia, jedynie 27000 kilometrów przebiegu i udokumentowana historia mogą pozwolić na uzyskanie ceny wyższej od szacowanych 90-115 tys. USD. Samochód licytowany bez ceny minimalnej uzyskał cenę 99,000 USD czyli około 406 tys. PLN.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Bonhams is extremely pleased to offer this fantastic, documented 2 owner Renault 5 Turbo II. The Turbo was originally purchased from Sun International in 1985 by Don Marsh, a renowned automobile collector and Volkswagen distributor in Columbus, Ohio. The car had been upgraded with the rare, factory stage 2 upgrade – good for an additional 27hp over stock, bringing its power even closer to the championship winning works car’s 250hp. In 1998 the consignor purchased the car from Don, where it has remained a prized piece of his collection ever since.

Today with fewer than 27,000 kilometers, the car is in fantastic condition. Having lived its entire life in a temperature controlled garage, the original and unique Bordeaux paint presents beautifully with a deep luscious shine. In the 1990s, the original seats, steering wheel, and pedals were removed and carefully stored. The nicely preserved originals were recently placed back into the car in preparation for the sale. The original suspension has been upgraded with adjustable Bilstein shocks for an improved driving experience and the preservation of the original wearable items, which are also included in the sale. Currently the car sits on an awesome pair of period correct Gotti 3 piece wheels, wrapped in new Michelin rubber – the original wheels, wearing the original tires will also accompany the vehicle. It should also be noted that the Turbo is currently fitted with a custom aluminum muffler, the original will too be included with the sale.

This particular car is believed to be the example featured in the February 1984 Road & Track magazine article where they refer to the car as “fun” “sexy” and “exciting”. The magazine article makes up just a small piece of the turbo’s immense history file. On record are receipts dating back to 1998, documenting its impeccable service history. Also on file are the original owner’s manual, service manual, parts manuals, Bosch K-Jetronic manual, and copies of all Federal and EPA import documents.

With its stunning and unique spec, impeccably documented history, and outstanding original condition, this Renault 5 Turbo II certainly stands out.
