Renault stands out as one of the brands that is constantly tested in the world of motor sports. If today the French company encourages Formula One and has done it a few months ago in Formula E, three decades ago she was the main character of the World Rally Championship. On the ground and asphalt, the signature of the diamond was competing with one of the fans' most memorable cars: Renault 5.
Probably for this reason, today the model is one of the most popular among these cars that marked the era in the 1980s. Now one of the most radical options comes to auction. This is the RS Turbo 2 Evolution, a small rear-wheel drive and a 17-horsepower central engine. Only 200 units are built from this game.
The device in question carries a chassis number 947 and is available for sale on Auction house Silverstone, according to which the French purebred could reach 78,000 euros (as much as $ 61 million) on January 13, when a new owner's decision is made. The Renault R5 Turbo 2 is only 22,000 kilometers per kilometer and its 1.4-liter turbo engine is coupled with a five-speed manual gearbox.
The auction house reports that the first car owner, a dealer in Germany, made various modifications to the car to compete with him in the "European Turbo 2 Championship" tournament, so he equipped the Aluminum Cage, the Devil Escape and Gotti Alloy Wheels .
The mechanical check-up was done by the Renault 5 Turbo Olly Melliard engineer, who ensures that Renault comes and goes.
