1985 Renault R5 Turbo II
1985 Renault R5 Turbo 2 Homologation Special
Produced on 8/85
In 1980 Renault introduced the new R5 Turbo as a pure homologation special to compete in Group 4 racing and international rallies. The 5 Turbo was based on the production Renault 5 Alpine, but Renault engineers scrapped the standard front-engine, front wheel drive layout in favour of a mid-engine, rear-drive set up. In 1981 Jean Ragnotti and his co-driver Jean-Marc Andrie won the Monte Carlo Rally outright for Renault, and the following year Ragnotti won the Tour de Corse. In 1984 Group B homologation was sought for the Renault 5 Maxi Turbo to enable it to contest the World Rally Championship. Ragnotti added another Tour de Corse win with the 5 Maxi Turbo in 1985. After the first batch of 400 road cars had been made to satisfy Group 4 homologation volume requirements, a second generation, known as the Turbo 2 was to follow.
Toward the end of the line, RenaultSport built 200 “MAXI 5 Turbo” models, with aluminum roof panels and a 1,527 cc (93 cu. in.) version of the familiar four, intended as a homologation special for the Turbo 5’s last great stand in WRC competition.
The later Alloy roof cars have Vin numbers 8221. Our cars vin number is: VF1822100F0010090
This car has been in a collection of Group B rally cars for many years. It has always been maintained and completely resealed and rebuilt. All original engine and transmission. It does have the special Gotti gold wheels which are very rare.
The fuel injection system has been gone through. It has excellent Yokohama A008 tires on it. It is all original inside and out. It never was raced, or abused.
This is the perfect example of a RenaultSport build of the legendary R5 rally cars. All the right boxes are checked on this one: Race history, Homologation, Last of the build series, and Iconic Group B. We will have several more Group B cars coming from this collection.
