I &hearts the 80s: 1984 Renault 5 Turbo 2

If you ever laughed as a Le Car teetered by, you might wanna stop laughing now. Back at the dawn of the '80s Renault ripped the motor out of its 5 (as the cars were known in places where Frenchness does not automatically equate to kitsch), turbocharged it, stuffed it where the back seat used to be and went rallying. Of course, they had to build some streetable versions in order to qualify for their class — Group 4 initially, later Group B which gave rise to the conceptually similar and equally badical Peugeot 205 T16 and Lancia Delta S4. Good times.
