EXTERIOR
Finished in gleaming black this 31-year-old pocket rocket looks magnificent against our studio backdrop. High quality GT Turbos are increasingly scarce, and so to find an exceptional unmolested example such as this is a real treat. Having been sympathetically restored in the mid-2000s by the current owner (of 16 years) the car presents impeccably. But unlike many older restorations that begin to show their age after a few years this one remains absolutely spot-on. The paintwork was carried out to a very high standard and only genuine parts were used when putting everything back together, including the side stripes that were sourced directly from Renault. The car was also treated to a brand new grille, sunroof, and seals all round. It was also waxoyled inside the doors and under the body kit to help preserve its amazing condition. Dry stored in a heated garage for the last 16 years this cossetted example is not to be missed.
INTERIOR
The interior presents in incredible timewarp condition, with everything looking and working exactly as it should. The delicate sports seats retain their original cloth, all in amazing order having never required a re-trim. The same can be said for the spotless carpets, door cards, and parcel shelf; even the factory cassette radio remains in place. Other commonly worn items such as the steering wheel and gear knob also present really well, and the switchgear operates without fault; the electric windows don’t drag, the heater fan is smooth and quiet, and the central locking sill works perfectly. In the footwells you’ll find original Renault overmats.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The turbocharged 1.4 is as spritely as ever having always been correctly maintained at close mileage intervals. The engine has never required any rebuild work and still performs remarkably well. Despite covering very few miles over the last 16 years the car has been exercised regularly, MOT’d annually, and serviced as necessary. The original maintenance booklet is stamped 22 times, the last service having been carried out in September 2020 at 85,894 miles. Since arriving with us the car has been fully inspected by our trusted classic car specialists for the new keeper’s peace of mind. It’s bone-dry underneath, and the advisory-free MOT is valid until August 2022.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The GT Turbo sits on its original 13-inch alloys, all in perfect condition having previously been fully refurbished to a very high standard. They are shod in a matching set of Uniroyal tyres in the correct 195 size with plenty of tread left. The brakes have also been checked and remain in fine operational condition, stopping the car quickly and in a straight line.
HISTORY FILE
This surely unrepeatable example was first registered in March 1990. It has now driven just 85k miles in the hands of only 3 keepers from new. The first owner, Mr Webster, worked for an advertising agency whose main client was Renault UK, and so he thought he ought to drive the marque. 9 years later he passed the car on to his daughter. In 2005 it was then purchased by the current owner who, with the intention of keeping it forever, set out to return the car to its former glory – and he definitely succeeded in that.
The accompanying paperwork is extensive and dates right back to when the car was new, fully verifying its low mileage. Every single MOT certificate since 1997 is on file, as is the original Renault document pack with the service booklet and owner’s manuals still inside. Spare keys, an original sales brochure, a thick raft of invoices and various ownership documents complete the History File.
The service booklet is fully stamped with the following entries:
