Drifting is a unique way to drive. Now, Renault has made a show car that looks like it was made for drifting. In that way, it's a tribute to the Renault R5 Turbo 2, a famous model in the sports world. And, yes, it's electric.
The Renault R5 Turbo E3 shown today is about as different from the R5 Turbo 2 as you can get. And what's with the confusing name—E3? Yes, because it's an excellent follow-up to the Turbo 2 model - and E - because it's all-electric. And maybe much more in line with what many race fans think Renault stands for.
"The Renault R5 TURBO 3E is a high-tech electric car with many racing and video game references in its design. This show car looks very modern and high-tech because of the combination. It's somewhere between the real world and the virtual world. This 100% electric drive shows how fun electric cars can be and how wild they can be," says Renault's Vice-President of Design, Gilles Vidal.
