grand sport, grand luxe.
Viva Grand Sport
In the early 1930s, Renault added to its range by offering 4, 6 and 8-cylinder engines and multiplying the Mona, Prima and Viva ranges to meet the expectations of all its customers. The style of the cars of the time was beginning to change, with aerodynamics making an appearance, and despite the economic crisis, drivers continued to want powerful and reliable “beautiful cars”. Renault launched Renault Vivastella Grand Sport in 1934, which shortly afterwards became Renault Viva Grand Sport.

A special version, Renault Viva Grand Sport Type ACX1, really stood out; this stylish and fast cabriolet featured aerodynamic bodywork that would mark the Renault style until the war. In addition, it was a 3-seater cabriolet that could – at least over short distances – take an extra passenger (or 2 little ones!) in the dicky seat in the boot lid.
Listen to the sounds of Renault Viva Grand Sport and immerse yourself in the style and luxury of the 1930s car.
The aerodynamic and elegant Renault Viva Grand Sport seduced people with its profiled grille, luxury upholstery, stylish (one-piece!) chrome bumpers, wide bodywork with no running boards and high-quality fittings. Later, the 1st Renault Viva Grand Sport 1936 Type ACX 2 shone at the 1935 Bois de Boulogne Concours d’Élégance. On these models, the windscreen was no longer made from 2 parts and the rear was given a new refined style. Viva Grand Sport then evolved into the Type ACX3. The whole range was produced until 1939.
