    Default Pars Khodro R5

    I came across this site today, having never really researched the Iranian markets.. its not entirely clear if the cars are still made, but it seems so. Check the PK and the Sepand models.

    They are either an interesting spec amalgam of Renault + others, or something was lost in translation.....

    The PK with Mc Pherson struts, multi link beam and worm (and roller?) steering. With the Sepand having coils front and link rear suspension also with worm steering.

    The others seem to be Nissan sourced -perhaps the Nissan/Renault link helps.

    Doesnt explain the Jeep though - I thought the AMC- Renault link was long dead...

    Yeah, manufacturers in places like that often license old designs. They can pick up leftover stock of parts, and more importantly, they can buy whole production lines and ship them to their own factory. As Simon points out, with the variety of parts included (ie, whatever they need to make stronger for the environment or just use something they can manufacture more cheaply, etC), sourcing most parts from such a place might not be interesting. What might be of interest though is parts like body panels if they still match up to the old ones. They might have some new screw holes for door mirrors etc, but thats an easy fix compared to getting an original R5 door. Luckily, neither of our 5s need new panels .
