40 years after its first victory in Formula 1TM with a game-changing turbocharged engine, Renault was present, once again, at the 2019 Retromobile show to celebrate its pioneering role in the racing industry.
It all started in 1979 with the famous RS10. After an exhilarating race in Dijon-Prenois, Jean-Pierre Jabouille won the French GP and first ever F1TM victory for Renault. When the ‘Yellow Teapot’ crossed the finish line, surrounded by hundreds of cheering spectators, everyone knew history had just been made.
Renault had challenged the status quo. It was now time to set the standards. High. Very quickly, engineers and designers started working hand in hand to bring the technology to Renault’s road cars. From the first Renault 5 Turbo to the latest Mégane R.S. Trophy, many R.S. cars inherited this cutting-edge technology from the ‘Yellow Teapot’.
