Legende Automobiles Turbo 3
What would a modern Renault R5 look like ?; Legende Automobiles shows us thanks to the fantastic Renault R5 restomod, the Legende Turbo 3
Legende Automobiles hopes to build a machine for people who love driving like us. Only a few people in the world dare to try to make machines.
The philosophy of this manufacturer is that the technology has given us a lot of great things, but it also takes away the tactile experience that we lack in today's driving. That is why they have created this fantastic Renault R5 restomod:
For example, they prefer to use an old-fashioned mechanical shifter that gives the driver full control of the turbo-powered engine, instead of a modern sequential transmissions with paddle shifters
From a visual point of view, the Turbo 3 concept is very clear: the car is immediately recognized as a modern Renault R5 Turbo, but it's customized and very special. Every detail has been improved, updated or redesigned to make this machine as durable as possible and provide the most unique experience from the inside out.
The car has been designed without compromise, that is, without placing any economic limits on its design. In fact, the entire body is made of carbon fiber, achieving a very significant reduction in weight.
The car has been significantly widened, to fit larger wheels, 16” in the front and 17” in the rear. The rest of the measurements have been adjusted so that the car keeps proportions and visual balance in its lines. Modern, one-piece LED headlights have also been installed, giving a timeless feeling.
Power will come from a turbocharged engine capable of developing 400 hp. If so, it would be a big difference from the 160 hp offered by the 1.4-liter gasoline engine of the Renault 5 Turbo 2. Legende Automobiles plans to launch this car on the market at the end of this year, in a very limited series.
