Types: Saloon,4 doors,4 seats
Renault 8 (1963)
The design of the Renault 8 with the rear-mounted engine seemed like its forerunner, the Dauphine.  The body was more angular though and at the time more up-to-date.  The Gordini R8 could be recognised by the two fog-lights incorporated in the front of the car.  The engine produced 95 bhp at 6,500 rpm.
