Renault

It is always amazing to sit in the seat of a car. A lot of people think it is just a way to travel. I see it as a way to express yourself, to show people what you like, that is why I would like to introduce you to Renault, a European car manufacturer that loves to innovate, design & Pioneer in car design

The Alpine

The Renault Alpine a110-50 Concept is a car bred for the World Series trophy. The reason this car is so perfectly suited to the series is the specs which match the races requirements flawlessly. It has a carbon fiber body based on the Dezir concept. The car is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Renault Alpine a110. The air intake ducts increase cooling in the 6 speed sequential gearbox & in the 400 horsepower engine. At 14 feet long, 6 feet wide & 4 feet tall it weighs almost 1 ton. Inside the front bumper of this low & wide car there is a splitter. Not the best race car because the World Series does have limitations as you will read about.

World Series

Renault World series is a free-access race. Every year the race has 9 locations. One limitations of this series is the V6 engine limit which prevents all engines more powerful than that will not be allowed to race. But one of the best parts of this race is that you can walk on the track & talk to the drivers & mechanics. Another cool thing is the Renault Village where you can go to many attractions including a Corridor of Time showcasing some of the company’s best cars including the original Renault Alpine, a racing simulator & many others. Some of the locations this year are

The series also uses this scoring system because there are multiple races.

The Twizy Z.E.

The car of the future known as the Twizy is a tiny wonder. Perfectly designed for small urban streets this car can turn in 3 meters. It seats two people & has no Co2 emissions. At only 7.5 feet long & 4 wide it is an electric marvel.

Dezir

“DeZir stands out as an illustration of the brand's commitment to more emotional styling. DeZir's sensuous lines and bright red finish express passion. Powered by an electric motor, DeZir is proof that environmental concern and a love for cars are by no means incompatible.” States the official Renault website, and I agree people keep putting aside cars because they are electric, but Renault makes a stand by making a cool car with an electric engine. and this is a cool car with a range of 160 Kilometers this is an electric car to beat!
