Full description

1983 Renault 5 Alpine Turbo. This is very much an appreciating car of the now. 
Renault introduced the Alpine Turbo during 1982. The engine layout is Inline FWD, including a 1397cc turbo engine. 
The top trump figures read, 
top speed 111mph,  
0-60 in 8.7 seconds 
Curb weight 840kg. 
The plucky Alpine wasn’t a cheap car, costing £2 more than the larger Fords XR3i. 
The Alpine was hand assembled at the Alpine Dieppe plant, and with as few as 500 units built, this is considered a rare and desirable automobile.
This car was imported into the UK in 2005  from France at 186512 Km, with 6 previous owners on record.
In 2013 the original seats were refreshed with new foam but retaining the original seat material. During 2018 at around 201500 km, John Price Rallying of Hereford now trading at JPR classics were entrusted to rebuild the original engine and gearbox, as well as fitting a new clutch. This cost over £9,000. Next on the list was suspension work, resulting in a full upgrade, utilising Bilstein springs and shocks all round - costing a further £2500. 
The V5C shows 4 UK keepers, the current odometer reading 204,860kms or 127,294 miles or 3,182 miles per year.
The works completed should inspire full confidence in enthusiastic B-road driving – after all what else is a hot hatch for!?
