Renault 5 Turbo 3E is 374 hp all-electric drifter

It’s been 50 years since the launch of the Renault 5, and to kick off the celebration, a special version of the iconic Turbo 2 has been unveiled as a 374hp electric drifter.

The Renault 5 Turbo 3E prototype, which joins the Renault 5 show car, was created to show that EVs can be fun, said deputy head of design Gilles Vidal, as he pays homage to the French company’s past special sport variants.

To do this, three drift modes have been added – something not seen in the original ’80s hot hatch. These program the car to allow for easy drifts, donuts or just a quick, “playful” drive.

When one of the drift modes is active, pink, blue and yellow LED strips flash across the front of the car, adding to the “80s video game vibe”.

Want to show your friends your drifting skills? Renault has thought of this too, integrating 10 mounting brackets for cameras such as GoPros inside and outside the bodywork.

The drift is aided by a rigid tubular chassis, a flat base, a roll bar, a carbon fiber body and a wide steering angle.

A deep air intake at the front of the car helps with downforce and cools the battery, and a massive wing pushes the rear wheels towards the road to keep the car planted.

These wheels are powered by one engine each, combining to produce 374bhp and 516lbft. They can push the 5 Turbo 3E from 0-62mph in just 3.5 seconds and up to 124mph.
