    Putting my Renault Turbo2 up for sale as well. (if you are wondering, 1 have more car I need to sell, my 1996 3.2 euro spec M3)

    All original paint, no fiberglass cracking, no accidents, no issues. Mods are limited to the Pansports, a set of original Turbo seats, and silicone hose kit (no more leaks!)
    Thing is SUPER clean underneath, no surface rust, no nothing. Probably one of the best condition ones I have seen in a long time. The car is stored at a friends place (will be at my house Thursday) both have hoists so we can get nice undercarriage pics. The car is a bit dusty in these pics. it's coming home for a full polish and will GLOW again when I am done.
    Very low KM, only 61000 KM.
    It's a RIOT to drive, just a joy.

    Price - send me a PM
    I can take care of shipping world wide for you

    Always my pleasure to promote these little rockets!!!!!

    I had a R2 in beige color. One day I would love another but my garage is full and want a Chaparral Race Car first.

    Cant fault you with that choice!
    The best part is you can reach back and touch the motor (almost). It's covered by, pretty much, cardboard and heat shield.
    You and the drivetrain share the passenger compartment, that's not going to happy again EVER. It's pretty much as close to a motorcycle as you can get without wearing a helmet!

    Awesome pic haha!
    I can say I have never been airborn in it, and from the underside, I don't think the car has left the ground. Someone else can be first :D

    YES !!!!!

    That picture perfectly describes the cars personality.

    I smile just looking at it.

    I remember going through the tight mountain roads in New England with it. I don't think any car can beat it thought the tight twisties.
    With todays tires it must be beyond belief, too much fun to legally have

    :)

    It's got some pilot Sports on it, and it sticks GREAT. Here are two more pics with me driving. I am 6ft 230lbs and I fit better in here than I did in my 348! Lots of room suprisingly

    Yes easy to get in

    My dad was 6'4 350 and could fit in it. He likes it so much he bought a LeCar. Had to put the smaller sport wheel on so he could fit his belly in LOL

    He was bigger then the car which was funny :)
