Renault 5 GT Turbo
As a testament to our capabilities we were asked, by a very large film company, to build a one off Renault 5 GT Turbo which was used by Ali G in his new feature film "Ali G in da house". We only had 4 weeks to complete the car as well as build a dummy car that was to be sprayed with graffiti. Both cars started as rusty grey 5s and are now set to be the most famous 5s in the country.
Filming took place over several days with the cars being moved between several locations for the shooting. It was amazing to see the sheer amount of people involved in such a production and the degree of organisation necessary to make sure everything goes to plan and within budget! Overall it was hard work but rewarding. The cast and crew were great with Sasha (Ali G) showing an interest in the cars and making everyone laugh.
