Renault Supercinq
The replacement for the Renault 5 started as Projet 140 in 1978, and the development was long. At the end Renault called in Bertone to finish the styling and this job was completed by Marcello Gandini . In October 1984 Renault launched its new Renault 5 (sometimes known as the 'supercinq') in front of the Eiffel Tower, Paris. Unlike the outgoing Renault 5, the Supercinq had transverse engines, actually taken from the Renault 9 and 11, at 956cc, 1108cc, 1237cc, and 1397cc. Launched as a 3-door hatchback, a 5-door version is added in 1985. A van version called the 'Express' was also launched in 1985 with a windowed 'Break' version also offered. A mildly modified Phase II came out in 1988, and in 1991 most versions of the Supercinq stopped production as the new Renault Clio (and later Twingo) were introduced, but special edition versions continued selling until 1996 as the entry level Renault.
