Renault 5 Maxi turbo

The Renault R5 Turbo has been prepared for the racetrack with almost 300 hp, enlarged wheels and a specific ride to improve the handling.

The first version was born in 1980 with the front wheel drive Renault R5 Turbo, which was quickly renamed “turbone” by the aficionados thanks to its swallowed arches and wheel wells. Unlike other similar cars, the “Regie” technicians wanted to create a real racing car, placing the engine in a rear longitudinal position, almost behind the driver’s back, while the fuel tank was placed underneath the seat for better weight balance. In the forward compartment were located the radiators and the battery, the braking pumps and the spare wheel.

The turbocharged four cylinder engine had a displacement of 1.397 cm3 and a power output of 160 hp at 6.000 rpm in road trim, with a maximum torque of 210 Nm at 3.250 rpm. The fuel injection was a Bosch K-Jetronic unit, with a T3 Garrett turbocharger with air to air intercooler. Thanks to its rear wheel drive, the R5 Turbo can reach 100 km/h in 6,5 seconds with a top speed of over 200 Km/h.

The first version, the Turbo 1, was very light thanks to the abundant use of fiberglass in its construction. The engine was very powerful already in road trim, with mechanical fuel injection and some solutions derived from Formula 1 experience. The following evolutions, such as the 1983 Turbo 2, had bigger fenders and aluminum added to the bodywork instead of fiberglass. The Maxi Turbo was the last evolution, because of the further flared fenders and the higher displacement. This rear wheel drive car won the 1986 Tour de Corse in the World Rally Championship, whilst all other Group B cars were four wheel drive.
