Inspired by the success of Lancia's mid-engined Stratos, Renault responded by taking the 5 model and shifting the engine behind the driver and switching to RWD. This little French hatchback now boasted 160 HP and became a giant killer and its second iteration, the Turbo II driven here by Sam Hancock, became an incredibly successful homologation special with over 3,000 road cars produced.


More about our new show, Homologations Specials: A study of some of the very best cars homologated for racing from the Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution developed for rally raids to the Ferrari GTO built for Group B racing. Built in extremely limited numbers, these machines exist solely so that their manufacturers could challenge each other in the arena of motorsport.
