Renault teases incredible cyberpunk R5 Turbo concept
Renault is going mad for the 50th anniversary of its iconic Renault 5 small car, with one final flourish for 2022. A new show car that very much resembles a Renault 5 Turbo but modernised and prepped for hillclimbing, is on its way.
The difference of course is that this show car, with its monster rear wing, bulbous arches and jutting splitter, will be all-electric, as will the new production car when it arrives in 2024. Renault says this one-off is inspired by the world of gaming and cars, particularly in terms of exuberance and high performance. This thing will be incredibly fast and looks like it came off the cover of the latest Need For Speed game.
We’ll see the car in full when it’s revealed online on 22nd September 2022, before it takes a tour publicly at the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille on 25th and 26th September, and the Paris Motor Show from 17th October. Hopefully, it’ll pay a visit to West Sussex next summer too.
