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/

$28k is not expensive ???? It looks like a flattened Jelly bean but it for some odd reason i find it cool thumbs_up.gif

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

A SPIDER! KILL IT! tongue.gif

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.

Halflifehavock13

It SAID rotary
moe89
they are saying it isnt a Sagaris ripoff because it was out around 8 years ago

Elise and Sports Spider hit the stores about the same time. There would have been no time for the other to copy the other's design. And I think the Spider was lauched a little earlier than the Elise (not sure though)

Frozen.

OMG I want to go in one now, they sound amazing! *dies of jealousy*

I can see why they call it a Spider, stick a few legs on it and it'd be a dead ringer for a spidey XD

And yeah Raven I know what you mean, without the windshield it looks really tiny =P

Well since this has been bumped (i have not seen this poll before).

I had to vote frozen I saw these surport the BTCC at Thruxton in either 98/99(can't remember exact year) and anyway they were good racing cars and one crashed near me, and that sort of thing makes an impression (it was forced into a spin on the first corner)

tard.gif WTF?

It gets a cool from me, it'd be frozen if it wasn't so limited production and could actually be a legitimate challenger to the Lotuses.

Only ever seen one on the road and it looked demon! Frozen from me.
