Renault 5 Turbo


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

It's the elderly motorised Tamiya kit built mainly out of the box except for lowered suspension & Aoshima 8 spokes. Paint is Saburu World Rally Blue plus pre-thinned clear from Zero Paints.

Great build, Ajay, thank you very much, this brings back memories!

A friend had just one in this color and with polished, deep bedded rims, flat and hard as a board, very noisy inside, but very funny to drive!

Super nice R5 Turbo , Andy !

There were a small handful of those beasts which made it stateside ; there were two in my hometown !

Were all of the Tamiya R5's the motorised version , or did they also release a detailled version ?

I have one :) not the Turbo, but a GTTurbo. Same engine, different set-up, but almost as fun to drive as the Turbo. Unfortunately mine is already sitting for 6 years now. One day....

@Ajay, Like the wheels, they look a bit like Gotti's.

Very nice. I drove a friend's back in the mid 80's and it was dark blue. What a fast and great handling car. It may not feel fast today but it did in 1985. Great job on the build.
