Renault Design India recently sponsored a project by designer Ramesh Gound that focuses on urban mobility called the Plug-In. The vehicle is actually composed of two two-wheel bikes snapped together to form a unified car that sacrifices nothing in the way of sports car cool.
The project came about during Gound’s studies at the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad, India. While Renault hasn’t committed to bringing the concept vehicle to market, we can expect to see more eco-friendly designs like this to dominate future forays into the world of concept vehicles.
The Renault Clio, a run of the mill small hatchback aimed squarely at the mass market. A reliable super mini driven by new drivers, mothers on the school run and old dears popping down to the shops. So what happens when you add an insane body kit, rip out the rear passenger seats and shove a growling 3.0 litre V6 in the back of one these sedate little motors? Well Renault decided to find out in 2001 when they did just that and unleashed the Renault Clio V6 Sport in Europe.
The Clio V6 was superficially based upon the MKII Renault Clio although in reality the two cars share few components. [...]
Renault has just released information on its diminutive new roadster dubbed “Wind,” a car they will debut at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

Because of its small size, the complex mechanized lids found on cars like the Volkswagen Eos or even the larger Renault Megane simply wouldn’t be practical.
Instead, the roof panel of the Wind simply flips over 180 degrees to stow under [...]
On Sunday the Renault F1 team revealed its 2010 race car with a color scheme that hearkens back to the team’s debut in the late 1970s. The yellow-and-black livery was the traditional pattern used by Renault on its Formula One and Le Mans sports cars before the company began taking on title sponsors.
Of course, the downside of the retro look is that the team still has not signed a title sponsor to replace insurance company ING, which called it quits last summer after the team was found guilty of having Nelson Piquet Jr. deliberately crash during a race in late 2008.
The automaker now owns [...]
