Travel back in time in the yellow swing

The Renault 5 celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

The car rocks like a sailing boat in rough seas. The gears are hard to find with the clunky manual transmission. Still, I’m grinning broadly as I gondola through the French countryside northwest of Paris.

I’m behind the wheel of a 1974 Renault 5 TL from the French manufacturer’s collection. Its bright yellow paintwork stands out strongly against the green forests and meadows and the blue sky on this beautiful summer’s day. Such bright colors were en vogue when the R5 was presented for the first time in 1972 at the Geneva Motor Show. The sale of the small car started immediately after the trade fair – in orange, sky blue or bright green.
