The basemodel #renault5 was the #r5l. In France the #5l model featured a 783cc with 36hp. The Vmax was 120 km/h and the gearlever was in the dashboard. As the #renault5l was anything but fast it got drum brakes all-round. As those brakes don't need a lot of cooling it had almost completely closed steelies! And Americans thought a #lecar was slow!
