    Default Ph 1 or 2

    At 1986 (advertised) and with the engine layout east-west I would say that THIS is a ph 2.
    As to whether that makes it the most desirable one, I will offer no opinion.

    My apologies. I had just assumed that the original R5 from 1972 to 1985 which had a turbo installed on its N-S engine was the first phase.

    Ahh we getting our data mixed up.

    Yeah the series one is differant altogether, I am reffering to the 2nd generation 5 and the 2nd phase of it the above car for sale is a 2nd gen and a phase 1 if that makes sense....

    Err.

    First there was the Renault R5, front wheel drive, with a north south engine and gearbox, like a renault 16 with the gearbox out front and the engine being hugged by the firewall.

    AND there was the Renault 5 Turbo and Turbo II.
    Essentially using a modified R5 bodyshell but with a north south mid engine and gearbox at the rear. Rear drive.
    Steroidal bodywork completed the picture.

    Then SUPERCINQ came along.
    Or Super 5 for the Poms -speaking part of the world..
    This had front wheel drive, an east - west engine and gearbox.
    Similar-ish layout and underpinnings to the first of the Clios we saw here.
    (Europe saw earlier Clios than us.)

    Then there was the Supercinq Turbo.
    In English, known as the Renault 5 GT Turbo.
    This remained front wheel drive and very close to lesser siblings.
    They had "pie dish" alloy wheels and suffered chronic turbo heat and fuel vapourisation problems.

    To alleviate this, the series 2 was released and amongst other things had a warercooled turbo
    and easily identified with much smarter five blade alloys, and a chin spoiler.
    A much, much better car.

    I had a red one of these and it was a HOOT! A street legal go kart!
    No ABS or ASR, but heaps of hugely airborne inside rear wheel cornering etc.
    Replaced with a Clio Sport 172 which being more modern, was better and faster - and heavier.
    BUT the GT Turbo is very much missed...

    I had a series 2 r5gt turbo

    Best fun I had in the mid 90's.

    Had the best power to weight ratio that sensible money could buy.
