R5 TURBO 3E E-Tech 100% electric
still turbo, now electric
It has accumulated rally successes, makes your heart skip a beat, and amasses
superlatives… The R5 Turbo 2 is 40 years old this year! What better way to pay tribute to it than to welcome the new R5 Turbo 3E E-Tech 100% electric, just as sharp-looking, as efficient, as spectacular! An icon brought up to date.
of power or 380 hp
R5 TURBO 3E E-Tech 100% electric includes everything: with the same high performance as its predecessor, it adopts and modernises its iconic style. Fin blade, air intakes, lines, colours, impossible to ignore! And its 280 kW (380 hp) motor electrifies everything in its path.
Two electric motors located at the rear generate 280 kW, power equivalent to 380 hp. 700 Nm of torque is available upon acceleration and the 42 kWh batteries produce a series of drifts at full power.
Created for competition and more specifically for drifting, the R5 TURBO 3E E-Tech 100% electric weighs 980 kg (excluding batteries) and inherits a bespoke designed tubular chassis. The flat floor accommodates the batteries; a very low centre of gravity contributes to better drifting.
everything for drifting
With two close-fit seats designed to push through “attack zones”, the R5 TURBO 3E E-Tech 100% electric is inevitably rear-wheel drive. Carbon fibre bodywork covers a tubular chassis, slick tyres are designed for drift and camera brackets let you record and share sessions.
Underbody, bumpers and all of the surfaces have been redesigned on this show-car. It gains 25 cm in width compared to the “Turbo 2”. Attractive details: pinky-violet tinted windows, red LED rims that light up during drifts and a luminous logo in the centre of the steering wheel.
Both aggressive and soft, the cabin is designed to be high performance giving you complete peace of mind. The safety arches reassure you, the bucket seats hold you, and the upholstery protects you… Let’s drift!
Sport cocoon - the cabin is equipped with shock-absorbing cushions. One of them is just like a teddy bear, reassuring … and effective during particularly aggressive 360° turns!
The steering wheel obviously has three spokes - they light up right up to the centre logo.
The invitation to insert a coin to start up the R5 TURBO 3E E-Tech 100% electric is one of the many nods to the world of arcade games.
The seats and dashboard are covered with the famous tartan fabric marking the good times of the R5 Turbo, revamped with the Renault logo.
Designed by competition pros, the “racer” bucket seats provide hold, comfort and safety.
