Renault 5 Turbo ‘Coupe’ 1985 Group A Specification
Reluctantly for sale is my 1985 specification ‘Group A’ Renault 5 Turbo Coupe – Price £44,995
I originally owned this car back in 1996 It was one of the last ‘Coupe’ cup cars made and became one of my Prima Racing team cars. It used to race under either 29 or number 7.
The car was a really successful car in the hands of Simon Cope and Tony Hart taking many class wins, fastest laps and pole positions when in the cup spec (150bhp).
I owned the car from 1996, then sold in 2004. The new owners used the car as a Sprint / Hillclimb car throughout the UK.
The car has good competition history.
In 2015 the car was made available to me and I purchased the car back into the Prima Racing stable. I wanted to run the car in the Motor Racing Legends Historic Touring Car Championship, so initially ran the car as it was (standard, 150bhp) for a few races before upgrading the car into full Group A specification.
Group A class winner throughout 2017 in the Historic Touring Car Legends race series.
The car is now full Group A specification and has had no expense spared with hundreds of hours of development. The spec is below after a ‘FULL’ winter rebuild 2019/20:
- Brand New Prima Racing Engine – full steel engine, forged pistons, crank, cam, steel rods;
- Gearbox – 5 speed dog gearbox, 3.4 crown wheel (zero miles);
- New Group A crossmember, with Group A rose joint adjustable wishbones;
- New Competition Driveshafts;
- New front Suspension (GAZ);
- New 60 litre fuel safe tank, located in front of rear axle inside the car;
- New competition wiring loom;
- New ‘flocked’ dash;
- New adjustable peddle box;
- Group A rear axle;
- Heated front screen;
- Seat and belts are in date.
This car runs a reliable 200bhp and is a very quick car in capable hands. It has received an unbelievable amount of development over the past 5 years. The car can complete a 60 minute race and will not run ‘hot’.
This car has been a class winning car in the Historic Touring Car Championship and has mixed with some very competitive and iconic cars. If you want to buy the ultimate Renault 5 Turbo race car, with a History, this is the car to buy.
I have lots of videos of the car in action at many circuits and hundreds of photos of the car build and on the track.
Please see the below video of the car in action at Oulton Park Gold Cup in 2018, setting the 6th fastest lap of the race.

This car will be on the button to race in 2020. Prima Racing can run this car for any perspective buyer (Preparation, track days, testing, race weekends) if required.
