Behold: the Renault 5 Turbo 3 – an impressive ‘restomod’ of the classic 80s hot hatch and Group B racer.

Created by French custom house Legende Automobiles, the 400bhp four-cylinder Turbo 3 combines the best of the Turbo and Turbo 2 production vehicles, adding a slew of modern tech and materials including a full carbon fibre body, rear wheel arches even more flared than the outrageous haunches of the T2, digital instrument display, retro LED lights and dual-zone climate control system.

Price to be announced.

    Looks like the designer was reared on Lego kits.The only relationship with the original is the name.
    I suppose you could call it ‘Dinky’ but then it woulld have to come in a cardboard box.

      U nuts mate? This is a R5T2 restomod

      Google Renault 5 Turbo 2, look at the pictures, then come back and apologise for having a turnip for a head.

        the time is right for some of these “restomods”
        almost a reactionary car if you know what I mean
        hopefully someone will start to churn out a few Metro 6R4’s!

      Total rubbish Kevin! I saw many a Renault 5 parked up in the local hotel as a kid on the weekend of the Galway Rally and bar the paintwork, they looked just like this one.

      And this one is a beaut! :)

    The Singer Vehicle Design remains the ultimate restomod in my mind, but oh yes, I’d have one of these…

      Agreed, the Singer’s are incredible.

      This is pretty sweet too, can’t imagine it’ll anything others than bonkers money though.
