Purpose Of Transporting From A Point A To Point B And Having Fun While Doing It. — My red beauty! Haven't got any problems with it yet, driving it for a year! For a car so old it really stands out of it's competition. Fun car to drive though :) Remember to use choke when starting.. Good and reliable.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

A Lovely Small Car — This is a 1988 Renault Super 5 Baccara. It runs with a 1.7l petrol engine which produces 90 bhp for a weight of only 800Kg !!! This means it is really easy to drive and it accelerates quite nicely. It's small and nimble, you can put it anywhere you want. This being a limited edition, it has a beige leather interior.
