A "hot hatch" version, the GT Turbo, was introduced in February 1985.
If any of you remember the late-70s and early-80s, emissions regulations had tightened things up quite a bit and the Le Car was down 4 hp to 51, maybe half of what your Harley has. , Assembly in South Africa began in late 1975, in Durban. , The U.S. version featured a desmogged 1397 cc inline-four engine with a power of 55 hp (41 kW).
Thanks to Roger for sending in this Franco-American tip! The larger engine and its various performance parts meant that the spare wheel could no longer fit there and was relocated to the boot/trunk.
Use of the name Gordini was from Amédée Gordini, who was a French tuner with strong links with Renault and previous sporting models such as the Renault 8.
It was commercialized in some European countries as the Renault Extra (UK and Ireland) or Renault Rapid (mainly German speaking countries). In 1977 it dominated the Sports Car Club of America "Showroom Stock Class C" class.
The R5 was one of the first cars produced with plastic (polyester and glass fibre) bumpers, which came from a specialist Renault factory at Dreux.
This was still months before the right-hand drive VW Golf GTi which also took three years to be converted by the factory to RHD. A comfortable car to spend time in with agile handling and good fuel economy.  In Britain, the car was still called Gordini rather than Alpine. The only person I knew who had one was the chick who worked at the VHS rental store (remember those places?).
Renault 5 GT Turbo in the 2010 Rallye Velay Auvergne (Group N).  The Alpine could be identified by special alloy wheels and front fog lights and was equipped with stiffened suspension, but still retaining the torsion bar at the rear with added anti-roll bars. The TC and TL had four-speed manual gearboxes, while the GTL, TS and TSE had five-speed manual gearboxes (which were optional on the TL), and the Automatic had a three-speed automatic gearbox. Within the alliance of Renault and the American Motors Corporation, only its predecessor was marketed in USA.
I owned 4 LeCars, all if them in the $100 range.  Ever tightening emissions legislation meant that power was down to 51 hp (38 kW) by 1980.. At the time, the automatic usually represented just under five percent of overall Renault 5 production. Don't post your car for sale in the comments. The 1.4 L (1397 cc) OHV engine, mated to a five-speed gearbox, was based on the Renault "Sierra" pushrod engine, but having a crossflow cylinder head with hemispherical combustion chambers and developed 93 PS (68 kW; 92 hp), twice as much as a standard 1.1 L (1108 cc) Renault 5.
