Renault 5 GT Turbo Phase II

Description

The second generation Renault 5, often referred to as the Supercinq (or “Superfive”), appeared in the autumn of 1984. Although the bodyshell and chassis were completely new (the platform was based on that of the larger Renault 9 and 11), familiar 5 styling trademarks were retained; styling was the work of Marcello Gandini.

The Renault 5 GT Turbo Phase II launched in 1987. Major changes in the Phase II version included installing watercooling to the turbocharger, aiding the Phase I’s oil-cooled setup, which extended the life of the turbo. It also received a new ignition system which permitted it to rev 500 rpm higher. These changes boosted engine output up to over 120 hp (88 kW). The car accelerated from 0–100 km/h in 7,5 seconds and could reach a top speed of 204 km/h (127 mph).

Externally, the car was revamped, with changes (including new bumpers and arches) that reduced the car’s drag coefficient from 0,36 to 0,35. In 1989 the GT Turbo received a new interior, and in 1990 the special edition Raider model (available only in metallic blue, with different interior and wheels) was launched.

In late 1991 the Renault 5 GT Turbo was discontinued, superseded by the Clio 16v and the Clio Williams.
