HELLER RENAULT R5 TURBO 1/43
" Aggressive " , " monstrous " , " to impress the girls"; these were some of the comments made at the Salon in 1978 when the mock -up of the R5 turbo was unveiled. Two years later, skilful drivers were appreciating the 204 km/h speed of this mass-produced "bomb". The impressive air intak es on the rear wings and its polyurethane trim made it instantly recognizable . This audacious redesign of the R5 without doubt regilded the Régie [state-controlled company] coat -of-arms.
