Alain Prost’s 1982 Renault 5 rally car is up for sale

Alain Prost’s 1982 Renault 5 rally car is up for sale

The discussion about the coolest rally cars ever made is one that simply has to include the Renault 5 Turbo. Specifically this one, built in 1982 and entered by Alain Prost into that year’s Rallye du Var.

Already an established Formula 1 driver with five grand prix victories to his name, by October 1982 Prost was a household name, and yet in his off-season, he chose to compete in a round of the French Rally Championship.

He was of course driving a French car, but due to sponsorship agreements, his Renault 5 Turbo was painted in the Marlboro livery, which makes this quite possibly the coolest 5 on the planet.

Prost, supported by his co-driver Jean-Marc Andri, managed a seventh-place finish on his opening stage but eventually retired from the event. It would prove to be his final rallying experience as F1 team bosses soon began to veto such possibilities.

The car continued to race in the wake of Prost’s efforts, competing in 28 rallies between 1983 and 1988, winning on two occasions and taking a further 12 podiums.

We understand that every vehicle is unique, which is why our Agreed Valuation policies take the true value of your classic car into account.

It did undergo a substantial rebuild following an accident which necessitated a whole new body and chassis, but a restoration by a previous owner returned it to its original Marlboro-liveried glory. As Group 4 rally cars go, this one is really quite special.

If you have a quarter of million euros spare on the 11th May, we suspect the temptation to add this to your collection might be difficult to ignore.

This car is up for sale at the RM Sotheby’s Monaco sale.
