French title - Exceptional condition - Conforms to the original - Still undervalued - No reserve - Completely rebuilt at Team FJ The almost new condition of this car makes it totally exceptional! Sold new in the French Ain region, where it remained, it was bought in 1990 by an enthusiast who sold it to the current owner in 2014. The car, which has not been driven for seven or eight years, has covered just over 64 000 km from new, and has never been raced or modified. Having a sound base, the car was completely restored at Team FJ, Alpine and Renault 5 specialists. The body was stripped back to bare metal, which confirmed there was no accident damage (see the feuille de marbre document in the file). The wheel arches, floor and sills were restored and the running gear sanded and treated. All mechanical elements were checked and the injection pump and distributor, piston rings and rod bearings replaced and turbocharger adjusted. The gearbox has been fully serviced. The interior, including the dashboard, conforms completely to the original, with red seats complementing the bright blue carpets, typical of the 70s/80s. This exceptional Renault 5 Turbo comes with a certificate listing the work carried out and the parts replaced, as well as documentation of the restoration on a USB stick, owner's manuals, a factory certificate of conformity and inspection report.

This GT Turbo has done less than 52k miles and as such the engine bay is in remarkably good order. All rubbers and plastics appear very tidy indeed, with the engine itself in fine fettle having just had the head gasket replaced by our team of technicians, following its full mechanical inspection.
