5 GT Turbo

gt-5-turboThe Renault 5 GT Turbo is the original ‘pocket rocket’, marking the start of Renault’s considerable success in making hot hatchbacks.

With a 1.4 litre turbocharged engine producing 120 bhp and weighing just 830kg, its exceptional power-to-weight ratio enabled it to reach 62 mph in 7.1 seconds.

After the rallying successes enjoyed by the widebodied, rear-engine Renault 5 Turbo cars of the early 80s, the R5 GT Turbo brought performance motoring to the masses as the hot hatch era began to enter full swing.
