THEORY OF

EVOLUTION

Launched in 1980, Renault 5 Turbo (160 hp - central engine) made no secret of its ambitions: to be the Brand’s flag bearer. Renault developed a competition version, intended for sporty clients. It went through the “Cévennes” and “Tour de Corse” versions before arriving at the “Maxi” version, the latest incarnation of this speedy little number.

POWER

UP

Renault 5 Turbo started out as a model for sporty clients. Its version intended for Group 4 was christened “Cévennes” (in honour of Jean Ragnotti, second in the race of the same name in 1980). From 1981, the model achieved numerous victories, thanks to the expertise of Ragnotti and Jean-Marc Andrié. When Group 4 was replaced by Group B, Renault boosted the powerful Renault 5 Turbo, renaming it “Tour de Corse”.

2 VERSUS

4

New Group B rules penalised Renault 5 Turbo “Tour de Corse”. Rather than going over to 4 drive wheels, Renault wanted to make its two drive wheels more powerful. Maxi 5 Turbo was born. More aerodynamic, improved suspension and a 1,527 cm3, 350 hp engine: Renault Maxi 5 Turbo was at the cutting edge of motor sport.
