DESIGNED TO

BREAK RECORDS

The 1920s and 1930s were all about were chasing records, on land, in the air and on water. Not one to rest on his laurels after the world records set by Renault 40 CV in 1925 and 1926, Louis Renault set out to develop another record-breaking car. The project was led by four drivers and headed by Auguste Riolfo. The result? Renault Nervasport, with a special version designed to beat speed records.

ONE CRAZY

HOT ROD

To develop this vehicle designed to smash records, Renault used the existing Renault Nervasport as its basis, since it combined power and aerodynamics – the keys to speed. It used a standard engine from its production line and built the car’s structure on a wooden frame and standard chassis, while the bodywork was conceived by Marcel Riffard, an engineer specialised in racing aircraft profiles (for Caudron-Renault).

REMAKE

The record-breaking version of Renault Nervasport was a one-off and the model presented here is an identical replica, produced by Renault Classic. This reconstruction is based on a chassis, a mechanical set-up, drive trains and other components from that time. Renault Classic also designed a handcrafted aluminium body for this model, placed over a wooden structure, just like the original car.
