Supercar celebrates its 50th birthday! An memorable age and yet Renault 5 is more than ever in the picture with its upcoming rebirth planned in 2024. A true symbol of pop culture, with more than 5 million units of the R5 sold in many countries.

For an exceptional anniversary, ambitious celebrations were needed. Renault will therefore regularly propose numerous events, happenings and social network operations throughout the year.

Thus, from March, the NFT will allow the greatest fans to acquire works specially made in limited editions around Renault 5 and its universe. A joyful and colorful universe mixing artworks, but also sneakers, and music with the return of a portable tape player.

The artist Greg l’illustrateur will create a series of works on the theme of Renault 5 and its different variations.

This official calendar will evolve according to the current events and will be completed with events and testimonies at the initiative of its fans, an ‘off’ festival in a way!

JANUARY – The Monte-Carlo Historique will get off to a flying start with the participation of a Renault 5 Alpine Group II accompanied by a Renault 5 Turbo. The latter will be driven by Alain Serpaggi for the occasion.
