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.
The whole ambience of the rally in a few sounds, that’s what you expect with the sounds of Supercinq GT Turbo.
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.
