A57 JJT - The Only Known Road Registered UK Model Left
First registered on Nov 30th 1983 bearing chassis number 122900E0002078.
The first owner was a Lady from Southampton who was to keep the car for almost
20 years. In more recent times the TX has been owned by Renault UK Press and PR
Department and has featured in an article by motoring journalist " Honest John", a
quick google search reveals this exact car. This TX is an original survivor with
factory panels and complete factory specification.

The TX
This is an almost an extinct species, the marketplace will offer up many other
r5 models to choose from, but a TX is non-existent.
The TX was pitched in the model line up just below the Turbo to offer a more
luxurious comfortable experience though still with ample power to be an all-rounder,
at least for its time.
A dvla enquiry reveals that this is the only known UK registered licensed TX
remaining, and this appears to have been the situation for a number of years.
To find another TX would mean going into ROW with few rhd countries.

History & Condition
A folder with a decent amount of associated paperwork and MOT test certificates
is present alongside a driver’s handbook, spare wheel and tools. The current MOT
test is valid until March 2023. The MOT history is 10/10, without a single
test failure, and would you believe, not even so much as a single advisory.
Starts runs and drives without hesitation or fault. Tyres are all matching

The many images cover the cosmetic condition, its simply lovely.

Whether winding around country lanes or hopping town traffic the 5 feels lively and
insect like when parking or leaping for that gap. Its efficiency and chic looks are
appealing more and more as the decades seamlessly shift, harking back to simpler
times. The Renault 5 model turned 50 this year, this car will be 40 years
old one year from now becoming a historic vehicle with tax and MOT exemption.
