Eacrés moteurs ! - 2012

  • For its new exhibition, L’Atelier Renault brings you a story of engines and victories.

    On December 24th, 1898, 21-year-old Louis Renault, make the rise of the street Lepic with his the Voiturette Type A, the first car to feature 'direct drive' transmission and gets its very first orders. This challenge becomes then the trademark of Renault: to convince the customers, it is necessary to put the machine to the test!

    In 1902, Renault manufactured a two-cylinder engine which went on to win the Paris-Vienna road race in the Type K.
