Hot-Rod Renault 5 Turbo
This week has morphed into a Datsun theme week, but I just can't resist pointing out this gorgeous Renault 5 Turbo featured on Bring a Trailer today. Besides, given the Renault/Nissan relationship this car could possibly be considered a step-cousin of the Datsun 280ZXs we've been featuring.
The R5 is one of my long-time favorites, and this example is in absolutely stunning shape--with fewer than 26K miles. Good gracious, this thing's overtly aggressive Group B persona makes me want to jump in and bury the throttle just for the sheer joy of it. I'm not sure I'd be willing to pay the $48K that the seller is asking, but I sure would love to carress it reverently.
Regardless, whatever you do, don't call it a Le Car.
