Renault 5 Prototype Celebrates The French Open

In 2021, the Renault 5 Prototype made heads turn with its lively and vibrant yellow exterior, and it is expected to continue attracting attention. As part of Renault's collaboration with the French Open, the Renault 5 Prototype now showcases a sleek metallic satin-white finish.

This retro-futuristic car pays homage to the Roland-Garros stadium through various visual details. The iconic Saint Andrew's cross is featured on the side grilles, while the illuminated Roland-Garros logo proudly occupies the spot once held by the renowned number 5. To add a touch of casual yet sophisticated elegance, the window contours are adorned with chrome satin, and the rims are finished in anodised blue. The latest rendition of the Renault 5 Prototype serves as a special French Open edition and offers a glimpse into the future production model, scheduled to be unveiled in 2024.

The original Renault 5 gained a cult following due to its playful character and distinctive design. As early as its launch year in 1972, Renault personified its appearance through the popular advertising cartoon, 'Les aventures de Supercar'. One of the most notable features of the Renault 5 was its distinctive headlights. This iconic look, aimed at fostering familiarity, is what Nicolas Jardin sought to capture in the Renault 5 Prototype. While preserving its essence, Jardin's approach infused a touch of modernity, bringing the design into the present day.

The car was also recently named GQ's 'Prototype of the Year', with judges being impressed by its modern but familiar looks.
