50 YEARS OF THE RENAULT 5: A YEAR OF POP AND SURPRISES

This year, the Renault 5 is celebrating its 50th anniversary. A true symbol of pop culture, with more than 5 million units of the R5 sold across the world. The Renault 5 is making a comeback with its upcoming rebirth planned in 2024.

Therefore, to celebrate the Renault 5’s big anniversary, Renault will be hosting numerous events and social media campaigns throughout the year.

From March, Renault will be launching an NFT that will allow the greatest fans to acquire limited edition pieces of work that are created especially around the Renault 5 universe. This will include fun and colourful pieces of art, sneakers, and music, with the return of a portable tape player.

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

This official calendar will evolve according to current events and also include events and testimonies that will be hosted by Renault 5’s biggest fans.

A whole collection of objects bearing a model of the Renault 5, specifically designed for its 50 years, will be available on the booth at the Estafette-shop The Originals.
