Renault’s battery-electric R5 Turbo 3E show car is reminiscent of the Renault 5 Turbo and its successor Turbo 2. Inspired by video games, the reinterpretation has two electric motors that together produce 280 kW and an instant torque of 700 Nm.
The rear-wheel drive car sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds (3.9 seconds in drift mode), the top speed is 200 km/h. The 42-kWh battery is supposed to provide enough capacity for several laps on the racetrack.
After the digital premiere, the electric show car will roll onto the stage at the ‘Chantilly Arts & Elégance Richard Mille’ classic car show on 25 September before it will be on display at the 2022 Paris Motor Show from 17 October.
