RENAULT CAR HISTORY

Car review on RENAULT

The largest French car-maker founded its fortunes on comfortable, conventional and often rather boring family cars. It certainly did not go in for outlandish styling concepts and dream cars, preferring merely in hint at a little chic in its road-car offerings, which were deliberately designed for die masses.


That old altitude changed dramatically with die arrival of' Patrick Le Quement as head of design in 1987. "We sell lo people, not the masses" lie said, and Renault's approach to its production car design was transformed with such innovative cars as the Twinge and Megane Scenic.


Le Quement cleverly instituted a policy of producing show cars — and names — which clearly predicted future production Renaults, a trick lie picked up during 17 years with Ford. In his way a lot of publicity was gained for Renault's show cars and the public was prepared for the revolutionary shapes and ideas of the next generation.


Le Quement banished the ghosts of such uninspiring experimental Renaults as the Vesta 1 and 2 (both super-economy cars) and the Eve Plus, an aerodynamic efficiency saloon (sedan), The first project he oversaw was the 1.988 Megane, an elegant three-box saloon with such essential 80s equipment as four-wheel steering, intelligent It was highly aerodynamic, notching up the very impressive Cd figure of 0.21.



From Twinge to Zoom

A tremendous exponent of die one-box design embodied by Renault's Espace, Le Quemeut's team created the much- vaunted Twinge, having earlier shown a larger one-box design called the Scenic al the 1991 Frankfurt show. This evolved into the production Megane Scenic of 1996, an ear that can genuinely be said to have revolutionized one segment of car design.


In 1990, Renault 1'irsl used the name Laguna on an ultra-sporty open two- seater dream car. Underneath the swoopy shape lay a mid-mounted two liter engine (210bhp), and the cockpit could be covered by a solid tonneau. The concept of a completely open mid- engine sports car obviously struck a chord at Renault because, some five years later, the very similar Sport Spider actually entered production.


Renault’s subsidiary, Matra, developed the 1992 Zoom prototype, a startling electric two-sealer. Quite apart from its arresting egg-like appearance and scissor-type opening doors, the Zoom could amaze onlookers by pulling its rear wheels in and under its body, shortening the overall length from104.3in to 82.7in (265cm to 210cm ) - handy for parking in that tight Paris spot.


From Racoon to Initale

Renault described its adventurous 1993 Racoon concept car as "an amphibious go-anywhere vehicle". It had four-wheel drive, hydraulic jacks to elevate ground clearance, a watertight body and completely amphibious capability. Its Renault's subsidiary, Matra, mechanical specification was not retiring either: a twin-turbo 262bhp V-six engine and six-speed gearbox. Equally sinking was the Twingo- based Argos roadster of 1994. This show car really gave rein to Le Quement's vision of breaking with tile "organic" shapes of the early 1990s.

The Argos was full of industrial, Bauhaus-style such as ignition-activated swiveling door mirrors, drop-down doors, a folding 1920s aero plane-style windshield and textures in shades of green, cork and silver made a visual feast.


If anyone thought one-box design was the only way to go, then Renault banished that idea with die Ludo The two-box Ludo had a very adaptable interior with foldable, removable seals and a huge interior volume; if 1997 Renault Clio.


With the elegant Initale (1995), Renault signaled a way ahead for luxury ears, and stole some of the thunder of Ford's edge-design program. The Initale was a super saloon (high performance sedan) powered by a detuned Formula 1 engine (claimed lop speed was 190mpli, or 306kph), yet had accommodation for recalled the style of the 40CV, Renault's prestige model in the 1920s.

Fiftie and Pangea
To celebrate 50 years of the highly successful Renault 4CV, Renault's design team produced the Fiftie for the Geneva show in 1996. This was a concept car out of the normal stream. Certain elements of the 4CV were raised bonnet (hood), the air intakes for a rear-mounted engine – but this was definitely not a retro design.


The fact was that the Fiftie had a Sport Spider chassis and was an ultra-modern two-seater. It marked the first fitment of Renault's new 1149 cc engine (which would later power a revised Twingo), and was sporting in slant. The roof could be wound back and then folded down to make a virtual convertible, while the interior was delightful blend of natural textures and curious "slacks" at either end of the dash. Particularly striking was the treatment of the lights, both front and rear, the tail-lamps "evoking waving flags," said Renault.


At the 1997 Geneva show, Renault displayed a concept van called the Pangea, which clearly predicted the shape of its forthcoming Kangoo utility / family car. In spirit, this was greeted as a revival of the long lost, greatly mourned Renault R4, as its boxy shape recalled the ear dial was France's best selling machine of all the time. Again this was no throwback, however, but was resolutely looking forward - like Renault’s entire concept machines.
