quote from seller’s eBay listing:

1984 Renault R5 Turbo 2 Street/Track. Beautifully restored and ready for tearing up the twisties. Originally imported and Federalized by Sun International and then further developed for SCCA competition.

Complete Restoration with minimal miles
Only SCCA legal R5 Turbo in U.S. (so I’m told)
260HP Rogers Racing TVTV Engine-Leakdown less than 5% on all cylinders 2/3/09
Pierre Ferry large capacity intercooler
Water and oil cooled blueprinted turbo with separate oil cooling (Earl’s radiator)
4:11 LSD transaxle
Renault Sport race clutch
Group B Renault Sport suspension
Bilstein adjustable coilovers front & rear
Polyurethane Suspension Bushings
Earl’s Oil Cooler
All Steel Braided Lines (oil, clutch, brake, fuel)
Group B frame braces and chassis modifications
SCCA legal cage
Safety Devices 15G fuel cell
Autometer gauges
Adjustable boost


Exceptional performance is generated by the light weight of the car, the modified engine, and the 4:11 LSD. The combination of a stiffened chassis and the Group B suspension make for flat cornering with controllable but large amounts of power on oversteer…an absolute riot to drive!

The Rogers Racing TVTV engine has been completely blueprinted, has steel cylinder liners, a specially modified high lift camshaft, heavy duty valve springs, head modifications, and a modified fuel and ignition system. Leakdown was just checked (2/3/09) and the leakage was less than 5% on all cylinders.

This car is obviously far from stock, but looks like it has some well thought out improvements to make it a strong track day candidate.

I know there are several subscribers who have their eyes open for a T2. If I had spotted this one a bit sooner, I would’ve offered to check it out as I’m currently on vacation in Atlanta. Next time fellas 😉

A reader named Wayne emailed me asking about Turbo 2’s for sale right now. I turned up the following with a little work on CrazedList and Google. All three models I found are in Southern California, ranging from $18k to $35k.

Renault R5 T2 for $18k in Antelope Valley – This car sounds like a project that needs finishing. I’d be scared myself…

1984 Renault R5 Turbo II, white, 33k kilometers, this car is in MINT stock condition $27500.00 – Car is part of a collection that is being sold apparently. Burbank.

Renault R5 Turbo 2 1985 $35000 in Orange County – This listing includes pictures, and thank goodness too because it looks really sharp.

I didn’t search the entire U.S. (yet) so there may be more. And Google didn’t turn up much help except an ancient page on the Sun International page. Some of the listings date back to the late 90’s. But for the hell of it, I emailed them to see if they have any current inventory.
