the renault 5 gt turbo

please feel free to edit if you know anymore details

The Renault 5 was one of the great post-war French designs a wonderfully elegant small front wheel drive in a two door hatchback body.
 Later models - zero to 60mph, 7s
1397cc turbocharged OHV engine - based on the Renault Sierra pushrod engine, but having hemispherical combustion chambers
Crossflow cylinder head
110bhp
Alloy wheels
Five speed gearbox, front-wheel drive
Stiffened suspension

Colours; white , pearl white, motorsport blue, red , black , silver, electric blue,

1982 - The Turbo II replaced the Turbo I and was made up until 1986.

1985 - Renault introduced the GT Turbo which had decent power in a small frame and 115bhp. An air cooled Garret T2 turbocharger was also part of the package with a modified Renault 8 Gordini 1394cc engine. The body styling became even more subtle and the power was delivered at the front to the front wheels.

1988 - New improved version with various changes including the use of a water cooled turbocharger. this appeared on the phase 2 models  and some very early phase 1 models at about the same time renault introduced the anti perculation fan , the final reg of the phase 1 models was plated as a E reg, and not a D reg

1989 - Received a new interior. red flecked seats , Rear spoiler, Colour coded bodykit one minor detail missing was on the wheel arch being the loss of the black vents , the front bumper gained a bottom lip instaid of the flat style , All phase 2 models where produced with electric windows ,

1991 - Raider model was launched. This was a special edition in honour of DIDIER AURIOLS wins and was finished in Motorsport blue colour coded wheels  with blue flecked seats black carpet else note there is no decals and  there is no truth in the ruhmers that the RAIDER was faster it was exactly the same engine .they where made in a limted edition numbers expected to be in there hundreds.

 In 1991-92 the Renault 5 GT Turbo was retired on the very rare J'reg not H'reg the gt turbo was replaced by the Clio , Clio Williams this was due to the increasing number of complaints Renault recieved by the public regarding the ever failing 1397cc turbo engine , once production was siezed the 1397 turbo'd engine was shelfed hense why Renault stoped any production of turbo powerd cars , this is the main reason as to why Williams were asked into Renault to help produce a Reliable car !

It was only the very early Phase 1's that didn't have water-cooled turbos, the later Phase 1's did.
Been around these cars for too damn long!

There was also a very few K plate GT Turbo's & the change-over cars from phase 1 to 2 are known as 1.5.
 I also think Raiders were from 1990-91 (G & H) ?

Yes and no ; the raider is called ''Oreille'' in France due to the official Renault pilot Alain Oreille who drove for Renault for more than 10 years , but no he is still alive .
