RENAULT 5 GT TurboClassic Car
When the Gordini Turbo was phased out in 1984 with the facelift of the 5, Renault had to come up with a replacement. The GT Turbo used the same basic engine as the Gordini, but a smaller Garrett T2 turbocharger and a few other minor modifications to the induction system saw power rise to 113 bhp, and again to 118bhp in 1987. This power figure on its own isn’t that impressive, but the Renault 5 only tipped the scales at 850kg, giving the tiny hot hatch truly staggering acceleration. That and fun, rear inside wheel-lifting handling.
