The Renault 21 Turbo, the sporting version of the saloon car introduced in 1986, was frantically fast and later models - like the rival Sierra Cosworth - even had the option of four-wheel drive. The Renault 21 Turbo was offered only in saloon form with two-wheel drive. This was at a time when turbocharged cars were the thing to have; indeed, Renault was still involved in Formula 1. Under the bonnet lay a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine developing a storming 175bhp. The only real problem for 21 Turbo owners lay in transmitting all 175 horses onto the tarmac. This was solved in July 1990 when the now-rare Quadra version was launched, directing 60 of the 175 horses to the rear wheels. By then, the car had benefited from the styling changes introduced with the second generation 'Phase II' 21 range. It then remained virtually untouched until its demise in 1992.
