RENAULT EXHIBITS LEGENDARY TURBO CARS AT RETROMOBILE 2019
The transfer of technology from F1 to production cars is embodied by a selection of models exhibited by Renault Classic* at the 2019 Rétromobile show.
Renault is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its first, revolutionary Formula 1 victory at the event by exhibiting a 1979 RS 10 together with a selection of emblematic production cars. These models show how Renault, starting in 1980, transferred the technical expertise in turbocharging acquired in motorsport to its production range.
The 600 m² stand is home to 11 Renault models equipped with a turbo engine. In addition, an Estafette – a model celebrating its 60th birthday in 2019 – adorned with the colours of the 1979 Formula 1 team is serving as a store.
Rétromobile 2019 takes place at the Porte de Versailles, Paris, on 6-10 February.
