MARREAU

At the 1st Paris-Dakar rally, all sorts of vehicles took part; a Rolls-Royce or even a 1927 Renault KZ could be seen alongside the (more usual) 4x4s, buggies and side-cars. From the 2nd edition (in 1979), brothers Claude and Bernard Marreau (already known for holding the Alger-Le Cap record since 1971) really made a name for themselves by finishing just behind Genestier-Terblaut Lemordant’s winning Range Rover in their modest Renault 4. Renault therefore decided to support them in the future.

PIMP

MY RENAULT

Following on from the performances of the Marreau brothers in 1979, Renault decided to deliver to them in February 1980 a bare body, which the two motorsport buffs would pimp in their own style. This car entered Paris-Dakar in 1981, but it was in 1982 that the Marreau brothers’ Renault 20 Turbo 4x4 won the legendary race.
