1983 Renault Turbo 2
I have been getting askedsomespecific questions.
1 - This is a EURO Spec unmodified car. This is NOT a Sun International car. This car is how it left the Dieppe Factory in 1983!
2 - The paint is %100 original
3 - The car is accident free, there is no signs of any damage or paint work ever!
4- This is NOT an aluminum roof car. Save yourself $20,000!!, nobody will know the difference except your magnet, and they drive the same.
5- Please don't waste my timeoffering to pay in full with paypal because you are overseas and too busy to get to the bank!
Up for auction is my 1983 Renault R5 Turbo 2.
Not sure what this car is?
The car has just over 61,000km and the kilometers are original. This Renaultwasan originalGermany delivered car, then sold on to Japan in 1988, where it lived until I bought it and brought it to Canada.
As you can see from the pictures the car is in excellent shape. From top to bottom, this is an unmolested, rust free, original car.
Excellent original paint on all panels. All 4 fiberglass fenders and the hood are in %100 perfect shape, with no cracking or spider webbing. On a lot of these cars the fiberglass piecesreally show their age if not taken care of.
The interior is in excellent shape, no sagging head liner! No cheap tubes needed to hold up a headliner here :)
All decals and stickers are in place with no missing pieces.
The driving experience is something everyone should experience. With the motor at your back, essentially sharing the passenger compartment, it' a drive unlike any other.
The previous owner stated the motor was rebuilt in 2009, but unfortunately I never did receive the documentation.
The car has only4 modifications.
- beautiful set of Pansport G7 wheels. 16inch rear, 15inch front. Current tires are 245/45/16 rear, and 195/50/15 front. I do not have the original wheels. This wheel set allows you to run modern sized rubber which is much cheaper and easier to get
- A silicone hose kit, which eliminates the vacuum leak issues that arise with 30 year old rubber hoses.
- a very cool set of original Turbo 1 seats. Extremely rare and valuable.
-HKS turbo timer
The car runs, drives, stops, and accelerates as it should.
As you can see from the shine, the paint is superb. I spent around 15 hours giving it a cut/polish and wax.
