The Renault 5 Blue Jeans is one of two denim-themed cars I can think of off the top of my head. Maybe we need more.
The Renault Twingo is a fairly common car around Europe, but with amazing folding seats, an antenna that sticks out of the mirror, a weird hood vent for the HVAC and tons of other quirks, it’s definitely not boring. In fact, I’d say this happy little French compact is one of the weirdest mainstream small cars of the…
Our pals over at Car Design Archives found this remarkable sketch on eBay, and only just posted it today, making this likely the first time it’s been seen publicly. It’s a sketch of a proposed American-market truck, based on the Renault 12, and dating from 1979, the year Renault bought AMC. What would AMC and Jeep…
French automaker Renault has made its intentions with the autonomous driving world well-known, and at the Geneva Motor Show it showed how it might proceed into the future with an electric autonomous car called the EZ-GO.
We don’t have much to say about the 2018 Renault F1 car, except that it looks cool. It looks cool! Good combo, black and yellow.
In case you’re not aware, there’s a larger-than-you’d-think group of gearheads who are literally counting down the days until the first-generation of Renault’s delightful city car, the Twingo, is old enough to be imported to America. These people are not wrong to feel this way. The Twingo is fantastic, and the more we…
Production on a new line for the Alpine A110 has finally begun, its owner Renault said Thursday. The reborn brand hopes to make around 6,000 cars yearly, though only 1,955 for an initial limited-edition run to commemorate 1955, the year Alpine was founded. This is all good news, since some cars, like the old and new…
As part of an ambitious plan to deploy fully-autonomous cars within the next five years, French automaker Renault said on Wednesday that it purchased a 40 percent stake in a media company to entertain passengers in driverless vehicles.
Be surprised: the tidiest donuts I’ve seen in ages are from a front-wheel-drive car. Behold one Renault Clio IV RS 200 EDC smoking its front meats in a set of amazing pirouettes.
The prophecy that has been foretold (and very poorly kept as a secret) has been fulfilled. One highly talented Le Mans winner, Brendon Hartley, and one promising 2016 GP2 champ, Pierre Gasly, shall be Toro Rosso’s sacrifices to the Honda power unit demons. All hail the dark lord of engine woe!
It’s hard to tell exactly what is so entrancing about watching a non-Formula One driver in an F1 car. Maybe it’s the Woah, can a person who’s never driven one of these things do it well? Without wrecking? thought, or the fact that the closest most of the human population gets to this view is an online racing simulator.
Formula E is like that restaurant near campus all of the college students flock to. It’s not as Instagram worthy as other spots, but it’s inexpensive, practical and gets the job done. Nissan, following behind the manufacturer crowd with its headphones in and backpack halfway zipped, just asked for a seat at the bar.
Circuit of the Americas has a population of feral cats, as many large places tend to attract. Alanis and I went looking for COTA’s cats once and found none. But now Renault—beautiful Renault—put the cats on their Formula One car. We’ve found the cats! The cats are here! Rejoice! Cats!
Here’s something you probably didn’t know: The McLaren-Honda Formula One team isn’t great these days. Wild, right? The team’s two-time champ, Fernando Alonso, has threatened to leave all year in the same vein as a teenager saying they’ll never talk to you again, and he’s still not sure if he’ll stay around.
The internet was aware that Palmer’s days were numbered with Renault even before the driver himself knew, and now it’s official: Joylon Palmer’s last race with Renault (and likely his last F1 race, period) will be in Sunday’s Japanese Grand Prix.
In about the biggest conflict of interest the sporting world could produce, the Renault Formula One team hired the person who oversaw all of F1’s technical development up until last month. That means he knows the confidential stuff other teams are planning, which is, uh, not good.
