This has to be one of the most beautiful cars to ever come out of France:

Intended as a light, minimalist sports/race car, it originally had no windscreen, no roof, no heater, which helped it weigh in at well under a ton. 150bhp is not a lot of power but the mid-engined car drove spiritedly. only 200 ever made

Engine
Cylinders 4
Engine Configuration Rotary
Aspiration/Induction Normal
Displacement 1998.00 cc | 121.9 cu in. | 2 L.
Valves 16 Valves
4 valves per cylinder.
Valvetrain DOHC
Horsepower 150 BHP @ 6000 RPM
Torque 137 Ft-lbs @ 5400 RPM
Bore 3.20 in | 81.3 mm. | 0.1 m.
Stroke 3.60 in | 91.4 mm. | 0.1 m.
0-60 mph 6.5 seconds.
Top Speed 134 mph | 215.6 km/

It's among the coolest Renaults ever. I've once sat in one. Totally purpose built, a lot like the Elise. Very spartan, totally purpose built

Here's one with a windshield


And one without


The windshield was an option

EDIT: Damn those unvievable cyclone's world pics... Well, I hope they're different from what I posted

Seriously, it looks great...like a first gen Lotus Elise sport I saw recently, but cooler. I kinda wish it had a windshield though...and, ya know, it's french.

Cool.
