Renault 5 Turbo 2 Mid-engine Restomod on Lotus chassis ANY engine!!

Renault 5 Turbo 2 Mid-engine Restomod on Lotus chassis ANY engine!!
This is a completely new take on the iconic R5 Turbo mid-engine wide body car on a thoroughly modern Lotus Elise/Exige chassis. This uses all Lotus suspension, brakes, hubs, steering etc so that it will steer and handle like a Lotus. We engineer an original 3 door Renault 5 body onto the chassis with appropriate wheel base extended at the rear to match that of the R5 Turbo mid engine cars.
Engine options are any of those fitted to Lotus / VX220 cars plus the Honda K series which can be tuned and supercharged as required. More interesting though is an option to fit a longitudinal mounted engine and Porsche transaxle gearbox. Options here are almost unlimited but it could be a Renault V6 Turbo, Ford GT Ecoboost twin turbo, etc
This vehicle is available as a commission for a customer to take on and tailor to their exact specifications. The price is for a finished vehicle at a road car level of specification and trim but it totally depends on what you want. It is best to give us a call and discuss your requirements in detail. We have a 3 door Renault 5 in stock and we can source the Lotus (or VX220) donor vehicles or we can discuss if you have something already. Absolutely everything can be specified as the customer wants it - colour, body modifications, wheels, interior detailed design & spec, suspension, brakes etc. The interior will include beautifully trimmed period seats in leather and alcantara, air conditioning, navigation and modern stereo system to the customers exact specifications. We can integrate iPads and other tablets as required.
If the road car look is not for you, this could be a track focused build using the R5 Turbo Maxi body if that is what you prefer.
See our website for more details of this build and many others that we have in progress and planned, as well as some ideas of custom builds from our inventory.
Call or email us to discuss your ideas and requirements on any interesting build. We have various flexible options to finance such builds so do call us for further information.
