Niga, I must confess, your R16 give me some envy.

 

More Renaults, still with with successful RWD/rear engined cars. This time some sport derivates...

From an era time when "Alpine" came before "Renault", two models of  the  Jean Redelé masterpiece, the A110, here in blue (what else!).

One straight from the "Monte" (J. C. Andruet)...

 

And other from the Rallie TAP (J. L.Therrier)...

 

And a "civilian" spanish made version...

 

Moving foward in the same era,  the A310 ( I think is 4 cil.). A less successful model but in a fabulous 70's fashion. Love this rear window cover...

Now from an era when "Alpine" came after "Renault", I think this one is a V6...

More Renaults, now with a less successful FWD model, the R6, a  reduced R16 body over underpins  derivated frome the 4L. Clients from both sides of the market had choose the real thing and not this hibrid...

Now the R12, the model that replaced teh R8/R10 range withs sucess...

A "civilian" version...

... and a taxi...

 

This cars was a huge sucess, among others it was build under the Dacia brand in Romenia with pick up option,  but the most interisting variant is the Ford Corcel from Brasil, the only Ford with 3 spoke wheels.....as all french cars of the era...

When Ford Buy the Willys brasilian operation, this car is ready to go to the market as the replacement of the R8 Gordini built there under lincense by Whillys...

 

Ford decided to put the car on the market as the Corcel, with those 3 spoke wheels showing is french roots...

 

They sell it there from 1968 to 1986 and the young Senna seems to like the later series, that still on 3 spoke wheels.

 

Back on topic...

 

The R5, a huge sucess model, that set up a few standarts for the next generation of small cars, here one from the first séries with "side pipe"... as a Cobra...
