Unlike the first generation Renault 5, where the turbocharged variants were radically reworked mid‑engined rear‑wheel drive machines, the second generation R5 turbo cars, launched in February 1985, were more conventional and closely related to the standard vehicles, with front‑mounted 1397cc engines driving the front wheels. With 113bhp, the Renault 5 GT Turbos were capable of sprinting to 60mph in just 7.5 seconds and going on to 123mph, something which put them in very hot hatch territory. Blocky plastic side skirts made the cars stand out visually, as did wider alloy wheels, similar to those found on the Renault Alpine V6 GT.

The facelifted Phase II, as here, came along in 1987. Along with mechanical changes, including a rise in power to 118bhp, there were new, more aerodynamic

bumpers and arches. In 1989, a new interior was fitted. The 5 GT Turbo lasted until late 1991, when it was discontinued in favour of the Clio 16V and the Clio Williams.This white example was registered in August 1990 and has had just one owner from new, although it was originally registered in the name of her business (at the same address). As a stalled restoration, it's been off the road since around 2009, with its last MoT expiring in August of that year. At the time of that test, the mileage was recorded as 161,217 miles. The odometer is now showing 162,762 miles. The vendor tells us that many new parts have been fitted and that the car is a 'very solid example' but will require some recommissioning.

The history folder includes the current V5C as well as a past one, a Haynes Renault 5 workshop manual, Renault driver's pack including sunroof operation instructions, service book stamped up to 49,845 miles in 1995, and even a competition entry form to win a brand new Renault Chamade - but sadly, the deadline was March 1991. There's also the Pioneer radio instructions, 1989-1990 RAC motoring guide, dealer guide, various tax discs, and even the original dealer quote for the car when new, at £10915.75 less an allowance of £5215 for a 1987 Renault 5 Turbo trade-in.

The MoT certificates date from 1993 to 1997, 1999 and 2001 to 2008 when last issued. These are accompanied by a large selection of invoices for assorted parts from 2017 back. The mileage is recorded at 162,762.
