Renault 1954

300 kg


Modernizacja 4CV - 3 zamiast 6 poziomych listew ozdobnych. Mniej niż rok trwała produkcja 4CV Service.
Firma wyprodukowała ponad 200 tysięcy (204.666 lub 200.629) samochodów. Sprzedano półmilionową "czwórkę".

The 4 c.v. Renault also has only minor modifications, such as pressurized cooling, which gives enhanced interior heating in winter, and an adjustable driving seat. The lid of the front luggage locker now has a stay to hold it open, and the luggage space has been increased a little. On the Frégate the compression ratio has been raised from 6.6 to 7 to 1, improving the performance. The Amiral has also been given a distinctive radiator grille, and the Affaires now has heating included in the standard equipment. Two Frégates are mounted on conveyor chains on the stand in such a way that, as they pass from side to side, they roll over to display their undersides.

Renault, besides its conventional little rear-engined 750 c.c. saloon in red, and an elegant grey Frégate saloon, really adopted Fibreglass. Included were a blue sports Coupé and a streamlined, lightweight red roadster.
