1980-1985 RENAULT Fuego Turbo


Overview

After eight years of moderate coupé sales with the 15/17, Renault needed something fresh. The Fuego was distinctive. Novel too, it being the first car ever to be fitted with a PLIP, or remote central locking. In 1982, after two years at the top of the sales charts in Europe, Renault introduced a 132bhp Fuego Turbo, which could sprint from 0-60 mph in 9.5 seconds. Clad with Turbo decals, and BBS alloys, it was less than subtle, but UK sales proved surprisingly strong. Renault stopped importing the Fuego into Great Britain in 1986.
