COMPETE WITH

THE GERMANS

In 1992, Renault Safrane replaced Renault 25 to embody the brand’s high end. The goal was to compete with the prestigious German saloons. To make this goal a reality, Renault launched Safrane Biturbo, presented in March 1992 at the Geneva Motor Show.

STAR ENGINEERING

COMPANIES

Safrane version V6 Quadra was chosen as the technical base for Renault Safrane Biturbo (its four-wheel drive provides very safe handling). Then Renault called on two German engineering companies. The coachbuilder Irmscher brought a hint of sportiness to the saloon’s design, while the engine manufacturer Hartge boosted the Safrane V6 Quadra’s V6 PRV engine.

A NAME

WELL EARNED

The engine manufacturer Hartge adapted the Safrane V6 Quadra’s V6 PRV engine, adding 2 KKK turbos, to which Renault Safrane Biturbo owes its name. With these turbos, the 2963 cc V6 engine could develop 268 hp, for a top speed of 250 kph.

THE BUZZ OVER

THE LONG COURS

In 1994, Safrane Biturbo unexpectedly turned heads, twice! First, recognised on 15 May at the opening of the Monaco Grand Prix as a “safety car”. Then a few months later at the Motor Show, coachbuilder Heuliez presented an estate variant of Safrane Biturbo, named Long Cours. Elegant and refined, with its highly original stern, the proposal caused a buzz among the public.
