Everything about the Renault 5 Turbo hot hatch is fun. From super wide rear fenders to distinctive interior, peaky engine performance and exhilarating handling, it’s a car that enthusiasts love taking for spins around serpentine courses.

When vice president of production at Renault decided to make a sports version of the Renault 5 Alpine for homologation purposes, his small team of four engineers and one designer took radical measures. They turbocharged the engine, reinforced the chassis, used aluminum panels to reduce weight, dramatically widened the rear track, moved the engine from the front to the middle of the car and moved the drive wheels from the front to the rear of the car.

The result was France’s most powerful production car and the base for one of its most successful rally cars ever. Rally versions of the Renault 5 Turbo won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1981, the Tour de Corse in 1982 and 1985, and the Rallye de Portugal Vinho de Porto in 1986.

Only 3576 Renault 5 Turbos were manufactured during their four years of production (1980 – 1983), but you can still find many secondhand 5 Turbos in Japan, where owners tend to keep them in fantastic condition to the delight of foreigners importing them from abroad.

The 1,397cc engine is a turbocharged version of the standard Renault 5 engine with Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical fuel injection. It screams like a motorcycle at full throttle and delivers a very impressive 114 hp per liter, which comes to 160 PS at 6,000 rpm. Top speed is only about 125 mph and 0-60 mph acceleration is about 7 seconds, but the peaky performance makes for exciting response around corners where the rear wheels tend to spin before catching hold and delivering powerful acceleration out of the curve.

French like doing things differently and it shows in the distinctive interior. There are all sorts of gauges with orange illumination, dramatically sculpted seats, vibrant color schemes and a carpeted engine compartment in place of the back seats that takes up much of the rear storage space but leaves enough room for groceries.

The midship engine placement gives the Renault 5 Turbo a front-to-rear weight distribution of 40:60, which contributes to extremely agile handling. Double wishbones and disc brakes at all four wheels further enhance control.

This secondhand Renault 5 Turbo is in excellent condition from beautiful gunmetal black body to well maintained engine. We helped a smart shopper abroad snatch it up in Japan and export it to his home country, where it should arrive soon.

    5 star review  I can't recommend JCD enough. Mathew was a fantastic person to work with. As a newbie to the Japanese auctions, I was quite naïve and had far too many questions. Mathew was kind, knowledgeable, and patient through the entire process. My Minicab arrived last week and I am quite pleased. I would not hesitate to work with Japan Car Direct again in the future. Thank you Mathew!! Jay A.

  • 5 star review  IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting for fairness at auto auctions here in the USA - we own a small dealership. Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit, but he worked through my caution and I’m now very happy to purchase through him. Call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

    5 star review  IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting not to get taken at local auctions (I own a dealership and believe strongly in integrity). Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit. Find me and call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

    5 star review  I always wanted a Land Cruiser ! Mathew helped me find 2 beautiful trucks from the Japanese auction. Had them delivered to Freeport, TX last week. He was amazing to work with. Fast response time on bids, super easy to work with, he has a lot of experience and answered all questions promptly. Will be working with JCD more in the future to purchase more vehicles !

  • 5 star review  Do yourself a favor, call Mathew at Japan Car Direct. Let him take the worry about doing business over seas off your plate. Not knowing anything about importing vehicles from Japan, I spent countless hours studying and trying to figure it all out. The headaches were too much! After Mathew walked me through the process it was a piece of cake. We've already bought a couple and are now buying more with complete confidence. Thanks guys, much much appreciated.

    5 star review  Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.

    5 star review  Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.
