Another one to put in the "I think this is the first of it's breed I've seen in person" file.
Another Gallic sedan, this time a Renault 8S, resplendent in French Blue. As a sucker for most forms of auxiliary lighting, I love the factory-installed inboard high beams that the "S" model received:
Venting on the decklid helps prove that it's powered by an air cooled, rear-mounted engine:
And if the Wikipedia entry is correct, the air-cooled lump has a displacement of 1108ccs and squeezes out 59HP. That's a better specific output than VWs of the era.
3-lug/13" wheels, yes please. The wood-rimmed wheel and nylon door pulls are also keepers.
Overall it's a much more-sporting than the last Renault I featured.
