50 years little friend – Happy Birthday Renault 5

After the world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in 1972, Renault sent its squeaky yellow, bright orange, sky blue or acid green painted R5 onto the streets – and hit the bull’s eye. The French small car is a real revolution and makes its competition look pretty old in one fell swoop.

The Renault 5 was originally only intended as a supplement to the Renault 4 and as a more modern and cheaper alternative to the larger Renault 6. But with its charming shape and city-friendly dimensions (only 3.51 meters long), it quickly gets into the hearts of a large fan base. In 22 years, by the end of production in 1994, 9,008,912 of the small cars that were initially advertised as “little friends” will be built and sold worldwide.
