high-tech as standard
In April 1983, Renault launched a new, very modern car: Renault 11. The model was part of the Renault 9 line, which had been widely successful since 1982. Since its launch, Renault 11 was available in 3- and 5-door versions and with a wide range of engines. It stood out for its premium equipment, quite exceptional at this range level. Most remarkably, Renault 11, with its “Electronic” versions, would become the first mass-produced car to feature some truly high-tech gear.
Renault 11 is ideal for drivers seeking a sporty ride, and for good reason! This fully equipped model delivers 105 horsepower. Originally available exclusively in a 3-door coach version, it was revamped a year later to offer a 5-door saloon, followed by Renault 11 Turbo Zender, a special edition for France. Renault 11 is a pillar model for the brand, which took Renault 9 as the first comprehensive redesign of its range.
Voice command and incredible sound quality. In Renault 11, sound is king.
What makes Renault 11 different from its sister Renault 9 is its grille with four headlamps and its unique bubble tailgate reminiscent of Fuego. In March 1984, Renault released a new sportier version: Renault 11 Turbo. Three and a half years after its launch, new Renault 11 models appeared on the scene, with a fresh contemporary look and new more powerful engines. The last Renault 11 was produced in 1989, making way for Renault 19.
With its easy-to-prep turbocharged engine, Renault 11 Turbo formed an excellent basis for a rally version. Renault Sport developed a Group A version, and its 150-hp kit offered rally fans a competitive yet affordable car. After Group B cars were banned, Renault 11 Turbo Group A emerged as the official Renault Sport car. Its solid chassis and exceptional reliability produced stunning results, with Jean Ragnotti or Alain Oreille at the wheel.
