The Renault 5 Turbo 2 Is A Glorious Reminder Of The Crazy 80s

There was a time when manufacturers stuffed turbo engines behind the front seats of their hatchbacks to go rallying and this Renault 5 Turbo 2 is a relic of that heroic era.

Meet Christophe Guerin, proud keeper of this beautiful Turbo 2 featured on the latest Petrolicious video.

“I was born in Le Mans, 15 minutes away from the legendary circuit of the 24 Hours of Le Mans,” Guerin says. “My father worked at the Renault factory in Le Mans, and he was a handyman, so he gave me his passion for mechanics and repairs.”

Christophe grew up in the right place for a car enthusiast and remembers his first experience with a R5 Turbo: “In 1980, I had the chance to drive a brand-new R5 Turbo,” Christophe Guerin says, “and it was such a thrill that I got hooked”.

Old people tend to complain that they don’t make them as they used to, but in this case, we think that every person of every age will whisper it as they watch the video linked below.
