Renault 5 Turbo 2 ‘Tour de Corse’ (1983) [Feature]

Feature Article At Hollza we’re passionate about cars and the automotive industry, so much so we occasionally like to feature cars and companies we think you’ll like to read about. Hence this feature you’re about to read. We hope you enjoy it as much as we liked writing about it. For the appreciation of cars and their unique stories…

The Renault 5 Turbo 2, a mid-engined (yes, mid-engined!) homologation special, built in limited numbers for Group 4 and Group B rallying between 1980 and 1986. The 1565cc turbocharged inline 4 cylinder engine produces 236 bhp. That power is sent through a 5-speed manual box.

This rather special and unique Turbo 2 was first registered in October 1983. It was originally supplied to John Price Rallying in Hereford, who under license from Renault at the time, not only converted the car to right-hand drive but also carried out the necessary ‘Tour de Corse’ upgrades to meet competition regulations.

In more recent years the Renault was further upgraded according to the previous owner’s exacting requirements, including having the engine rebuilt to 1565cc Maxi spec. This example also boasts a number of genuine and rare Tour de Corse parts including the manifold, oil cooler, and close-ratio 5-speed gearbox.
