Last year Chris Harris drove a Renault 5 Turbo for the channel and lots of you wanted more, so we found ourselves an expert and a tidy example of the Turbo and James went to have a chat with Olly Melliard from Melliard Motorsport about what makes this titan of a hot hatch so special!
Thanks to Melliard Motorsport for taking the time to show us round the two featured examples that they have set up and restored and to the long term owners for allowing us to film the cars.
