1984 Renault Fuego Turbo
65,000 original miles
This car has been sitting in a dry garage for many years.
The previous owner had originally purchased it to restore himself, but never finished the job.
See photo of car in storage garage.
We did put in a battery and attempt to start engine;
does turn over but does appear to have some sort of spark issue!
We ran an alternative gas line and used some starting fluid engine fired once.
Engine does have good compression.
Clutch pedal feels good; brake pedal however is weak.
Has rare leather interior; not in bad condition for age.
Minimal rust and no apparent body work;
extremely solid for age; see underneath photos.
When we purchased this car, the roof was open.
Due to being open for an extended period of time,
the canvas has shrank.
We used to duct tape to close it up the best we could.
What you see is what you get!
Please take the time to look at ALL photos carefully!!
Car does appear to be all original, however we have no way of authenticating it!
Brief History of the Fuego
The Renault Fuego was heavily based on the Renault 18, sharing its floorplan and drive-train, but featuring a new front suspension design developed from the larger Renault 20/30. The design kept the familiar double wishbone layout common with the Renault 18 but no parts were interchangeable and the design incorporated negative scrub radius geometry. The new suspension design would later be introduced in the face-lifted Renault 18, and with minor refinements (larger bushings, etc.), it was used in the Renault 25. In 1984, the Fuego dashboard was added to the face-lifted R18. European production continued into 1986 (to 1985 in France and 1986 in Spain), while Renault Argentina produced the Fuego from 1982 until finally ending production in 1995 with the 2.2 litre "GTA Max" (the final phase III facelift introduced in 1990). It was the first mass-produced four-seat sports model to be designed in a wind tunnel. The resulting drag coefficient factor of 0.32-0.35 depending on model and year. In October 1982, the Turbo Diesel model was classified as the then-fastest diesel car in the world with a top speed of 180km/h.The Fuego was the first car to have a remote key-less system with central locking that was available from the 1983 model year (from October 1982).The system was invented by Frenchman Paul Lipschutz (hence the name PLIP remote which is still used in Europe), and later introduced on other Renault models. The Fuego was also the first car to have steering wheel mounted satellite controls for the audio system. This feature became popularized on the new 1984 model Renault 25.
There were very few of these cars exported the US; very few remain in good condition!
