As an answer to Lancia's rallying success with Stratos, Renault asked Bertone’s Marc Deschamps to design a new sports version of the Renault 5 Alpine supermini, thus the Renault 5 Turbo is the result. Unlike the standard Renault 5, the 5 Turbo featured a mid-mounted 1397 cc Cléon-Fonte turbocharged engine, capable of putting out 158 horsepower and 221 Nm torque, is placed behind the driver in mid-body in a modified Renault 5 chassis.
The first 400 production 5 Turbos were made to comply with Group 4 homologation to allow the car to compete in international rallies, and were manufactured at the Alpine factory in Dieppe. Driven by Jean Ragnotti in 1981, the 5 Turbo won the Monte Carlo Rally on its debut in the World Rally Championship.
