Renault R5 Turbo, 1980. Based on the Renault R5 hatchback but with the engine turbo-charged and placed amidships, the R5 Turbo was primarily designed for rallying. The new rear bodywork was styled by Marcello Gandini at Bertone. In line with Group 4 homologation rules 400 road cars had to be built as well as the dedicated rally versions. In fact in total 3576 R5 Turbos were manufactured during a four-year production run in two series (Turbo and Turbo 2)
