    Thread: Rare Rally classic FOR SALE: 1984 Renault R5 Turbo2

    1. 03-15-2006 08:01 PM #1
      After 6 loving years my father has finally decided that its time to get rid of his pride and Joy. His 1984 Renault R5 Turbo2. He has updated the clutches, exhaust, put in cobra seats. Has all EPA & DOT papers. Never wrecked or raced, no suprises, has spares of wheels and tires. Books and manuals. The car was featured in a xbox rally video game which we have a copy of . Cross drilled rotors, SS lines, new oils lines. Runs great, about 30,000 miles. I am just posting this for him and know there are some car enthusiests on here so do give him a e-mail if you are interested.

      awesome awesome car.
      good luck with the sale. must be hard.

      to sell a car like that is to know you will never have another.

      whats he replacing it with?

      In the eye of the beholder.
      Given what that car will do when moving, it could look like an aztec and be beautiful.
      The dreamer in me would love to know the asking price.

      As nm+ said, "In the eye of the beholder".

      Its as beautiful as the A-10.

      So raw, so function. Both are amazing pieces of art and machinery.

      The R5 is one of only two Renault's I would place in my dream garage (the Alpina is the other one), and this is a great example. Good luck with the sale, I hope it goes to someone who will truly appreciate it.

      It is very hard on him I can see it, usually he only keeps cars for 5 years but this one he has a special bond too. He said he turns more heads with this than any other car he's owned, not that thats why he bought it. He is selling it for a 546 RWHP Z06

      Yeah, he is looking for $30k and pretty firm at that price. This is an amazing condition R5 Turbo also, pristine condition.

      How about the Clio sport 32V???

      Thanks for all the comments guys! Some of you may not like the looks of it but does not mean you have to dog it. I do like the A-10 analogy
