Rare early Silver GTA V6 Turbo for sale

Postby Simon_Wej » Fri Dec 07, 2018 1:02 pm

Date of registration: 7th Jan 1987
Former keepers: 13
MOT: 19th Feb 2019
Previous MOT paperwork 1992-2003, 2015-present

Lots of paperwork for spares etc going back to 1989.

This is an exceptional condition Renault Alpine GTA V6 Turbo in metallic silver…..one of only 2 silver GTA turbos in the UK. This is one of the earliest GTA turbos with the flat bonnet and I have owned the car for just over 2 years and have gone through it bumper to bumper cleaning and restoring everything to original spec!

The whole rear of the car was subjected to a £4K refurbishment in May this year (see below) by Renault Alpine Tuning Services (RATS) in Derby and, while there, the sills and front cross member were checked and given a clean bill of health – there is no rust to put right on this car whatsoever, it’s all been done or never needed to be done (unlike many others).

The paintwork is immaculate having been resprayed and lacquered to an exceptional standard in 2016 by the previous owner. The interior, “boot” area and engine compartment have been removed, cleaned, refurbished/replaced etc and are in stunning condition as can be seen from the photos. It has an Alpine (what else!) CD / tuner unit fitted that sounds amazing (the original radio cassette / clock units are also provided if you really wanted to go back to original). Everything works as it should and it comes with the original leather Alpine badged wallet, plus Renault badge that originally would have been on the bonnet, since replaced with a much nicer Alpine badge.

It drives perfectly, the engine is quiet, pulls hard from low revs and really accelerates when the turbo comes in, with a lovely whoosh between gears as the wastegate activates. The ride is very comfortable, and there are no interior rattles or squeaks - apart from the non-powered steering you would not believe you are in a 32 year old car!

Wow, that looks fabulous - shame you are wanting to sell. I did not realise there are only 2 x silver in the UK, assume mine is the second?

AlanM and Simon T also have silver GTAs

Regardless..not a common colour ...looks great...I do think silver looks good...as the wheels/lights blend..

Yes, Mine is the earliest Silver Turbo existing, registered 1st August 1986.
Min is VIN 42017, where as the one for sale is VIN 420014, so suspect that the car for sale has some extras that took the car longer to be finished and registered. Certainly looks like a real peach of a car :-)
1986 : '86 GTA v6 BW-EFR turbo, with Adaptronic ECU
Firsts at
2007 : Gurston Down & RAOC Champion
2008 : Rushmoor & Eelmoor & ACSMC Hillclimb class Champion
2009 : Longcross & Eelmoor
2010 : Crystal Palace & Eelmoor
2016 : Rushmoor & 5th O/A
