The Moskvitch G5 was a Formula One car from Moskvitch released in 1965. It was to be fitted with an engine called GD-1, an eight-cylinder 1500 cc DOHC engine giving 200 hp (150 kW) at 10,500 rpm. Already during the first test the engine produced 162 hp (121 kW) at 6000 rpm. The engine was fitted with four dual Weber carburettors and the total weight was 158 kg (348 lb). The G5 was also the first Russian car with disk brakes on all wheels. The fibreglass body was designed using a wind tunnel. However, funding was cut so the car had to be fitted with an inline-4 engine from the Moskvitch 412, but fitted with a new DOHC head and volume increased to 1840 cc. It gave 124 hp (92 kW).
