While browsing through the auction list at the next CCA event, I came across this mouthwatering proposition:
https://www.classiccarauctions.co.uk/19 ... 5-gt-turbo

I've always been a fan of hot French metal and if I had a space in the garage, I'd be seriously tempted to fill it with this.

Ive driven one and it was great fun and they look really cool(though not as fun as a 931 :)) , they have been getting really pricey though. My friend had a stripped out white renault 5 GTE with a Honda k20, that car is incredible fun combination :)

That's one of the Renault Fives they built with the engine at the wrong end ;-)

If that one is a bit out of your price range here's another one, it will need a bit of spanner and sponging but only £1000:
