Renault 5 Turbo
At the end of the seventies, Renault launched a very important model in terms of sales, the Renault 5. It quickly lived up to expectations and an Alpine version was born, bringing a little sportiness to the range. However, two engineers found this insufficient and dreamt up a more radical version. Jean Terramorsi and Henry Lherm envisioned an ultimate version equipped with a Turbo. After convincing the rest of the staff, the Renault 5 was transformed into a racehorse with a completely redesigned body, a 160-horsepower turbo engine and road worthiness rarely seen on such a small car. This R5 Turbo quickly became a legend and is today an icon for a whole generation.
