#563 CORGI - RENAULT 5 TS and RENAULT 5 TURBO "CALBERSON" (Nr. 293 and 307) (1977 and 1981)



This is one of my favorite cars of all times, the Renault 5 in its rally version:

  • Scale 1:36
  • Practicable doors and bonnet (rear)
  • Released February 1977, discontinued in 1980
  • License Plate 692









And to make this entry a little more attractive, I include here the same car, but in standard version. It is curious, that this model came out when the previous one was discontinued, so there were not two Renault 5´s in the same catalogue.

Scale 1:36
Practicable doors and trunk (rear)
Released April 1981, discontinued  in 1982
Sold 236,000 times
License Plate 837





 
Both cars are made in 1:36 scale. You can read more about Corgi Toys in this scale at entry #99.
