Supercinq GT Turbo
In 1984, Renault 5 ended its career and was succeeded by Supercinq, more spacious and better equipped. Supercinq rose to the challenge, in turn becoming the top-selling car in France between 1986 and 1989. A sporty version - Supercinq GT Turbo - was launched just 4 months after the launch of the classic version.
Supercinq GT Turbo was an addition to the Renault Supercinq range. Supercinq GT Turbo turned heads with its wraparound bumpers, its wing extensions and its underbody trim. Furthermore, it highlighted an innovative interior and excellent performance (Phase 1 reached 197 kph and Phase 2 reached 204 kph!). It went onto a rally successful career, in France and abroad.
In terms of mechanics, Renault Supercinq GT Turbo was equipped with a 4-cylinder 1400 cc cast-iron block engine, along with a Garrett T2 turbocharger. The engine can achieve 115 hp. With its restyling in 1987, Supercinq GT Turbo’s engine was improved; it gained power to achieve 120 hp.
The whole ambience of the rally in a few sounds, that’s what you expect with the sounds of Supercinq GT Turbo.
In 1989, Renault released a limited edition known as “Alain Oreille” to celebrate the victory of Alain Oreille and Gilles Thimonier in the FIA World Rally Championship. This limited edition of Supercinq GT Turbo (only 2,000 units) produced in honour of the man who was Renault’s official driver for 10 years, stood out with its “metallic sport blue” colour and some special equipment.
An unrelenting competitor, Supercinq GT Turbo saw off rivals such as 205 GTi and Golf GTi. The proof: 160,000 GT Turbo vehicles (Phases 1 and 2) were manufactured between 1985 and 1991. Furthermore, Supercinq GT Turbo enjoyed a great career in rallys and France and World championships. At the wheel, Alain Oreille was the only driver to have won a heat in the rally world championship with a group N car, at the Bandama Rally, in Ivory Coast in 1989.
