A 1974 Land Rover (no, not a Defender. Just a Land Rover)
This thing. I’ve seen it before, but it’s still cute.
One of the last to have a number, made from 1988 to 1995 (and longer in developing markets)
Time to go big, by Renault standards. The 20 replaced the 16 and was bigger but still a hatch. Yes, steel wheels with no hubcaps. That was a thing at the time on basic models.
Aaaaand...we’ve reached the end. No, not numerically (the pleasures of the 20, 21, 25 and 30 await) but chronologically. The 19 was the last numbered Renault to be introduced. Its other claim to fame was that it was designed by Giugiaro although he possibly wasn’t having his best of days at the time. Also, it’s one of…
We’ve had the 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17 (and 177) so....
We’ve seen the 14, 15 and 16 so next is....the 17.
Top Gear 26 starts in half an hour. How much more exciting can life get?
We’ve had the 14 and 15. What’s up next? Yes, this is. Pictures by your correspondent in 2015 at Rétromobile.
They’re like a rash, these things. Seen in Paris last week.
Something else almost forgotten from Renault.
Time to meet the forgotten 14 which had the claim to fame of being Renault’s first transversely engined car.
So, what is it? No, not the Golf. Not the Scenic either. The one in the middle.
I was at Rétromobile, a classic car show in Paris, last week. They hold auctions of cars and bikes for those seriously wealthy.
Except that we’ve been here already this month so let’s have some exotic R12s.
Just like 9, but with a hatch.
We did the R8 on the 8th so now we get a chance to see its longer and dearer brother.
Andouillette, veg, very small potatoes, a religeuse and a coffee.
We still have Renaults for a few days yet, so here’s a 9 as seen by yours truly in 2016. It’s a fancy TSE model with headlight wipers which were a thing once.
