I know most of you hate this car, but I don't understand why.

It's slammed, dunked, dashed (I made most of those terms up) and it has deeply dished shexy alloys, and it is the grandaddy of all RenaultSport hot hatches - yet there is zero love for it.

It is chuffingfingly cool and probably worth a bomb today:

I think it is :smoker:

I'd consider a 5 Maxi in my fantasy garage. Not sure whether the lack of love is dislike or simple ambivalence among the congregation.

I watched the first few seconds to confirm it was what I thought and switched off. Three seconds of my life lost forever :cheese:

ten quid says the A5/R5 Alpine Turbo is coooooool!

Boxy body with some interestingly horizontal bits going on (all boxy cars look ace when paired with some decent rims)

Very much lowered, slammed! - yes!

Deeply dished alloys - yes!

Slightly crass turbo delivery - yes!

More fun than a wobble in your left trouser leg - yes!

Time has shown that SiF is always right. Ergo R5 = cool :)
