IT IS

ALL ABOUT

PASSION.

At the 1990 Paris Motor Show, Renault unveiled its Laguna Concept Car, or Laguna CC. A showcase for both technology and passion, this fun and sporty concept car featured an uncompromising bonnet-less design backed by a 2-litre 210-horsepower engine.

AVANT-GARDE

Passion and technology being central to Renault Laguna CC, the vehicle featured many innovations, mainly in the field of safety. It included a tubular chassis at the front to absorb impacts in case of an accident, as well as a tubular chassis at the rear, supporting the engine and other mechanical components. Between the two chassis was a honeycomb composite cell. Renault Laguna CC also boasted a unique retractable crash bar that can be activated in just two tenths of a second. The result was an enhanced, streamlined look in place of the unsightly crash bar usually fitted on cabriolets at the time.

RETRO-FUTURISTIC

STYLE

Most striking about Renault Laguna CC is its lack of windscreen (a design that would inspire another windscreen-less model, Renault Spider). In its place, the brand offered passengers special “stereo cruising” headsets with a futuristic eye shield and built-in headphones playing electronic music (imagine Daft Punk!).

DESIGN

While Renault Laguna CC did not move forward as a production vehicle, its windscreen-less structure would inspire the Renault Sport Spider model, launched in 1996. Similarly, in 1994, the brand presented the Argos concept car, also a two-seater “tray”-like model, which aimed to show Renault’s future stylistic approaches. In 1996, the brand introduced the Renault ZO concept car, a small roadster with a wind deflector rather than a windscreen. (Are you beginning to see the pattern?). The brand would ultimately drop the design elements (with the lack of windscreen and “tray”-like appearance) but keep the Laguna name for the mass-produced sedan, which as of 1994 would replace Renault 21 for three generations.
