Abandoned Hot Hatch? A Rough Renault 5 Turbo!

October 23, 2012

This car is a certified star, it's a grunty work-of-art on wheels. There are those who would do very bad things to obtain one, and here''s one sitting on the side of the road.

This 5 was built in 1981. It has a 1,397cc inline 4 engine.
