NEW!!! 2017 RENAULT 4
Retromania continues to rage across the motoring world, with manufacturers referring to inspiration from classic designs to style modern technology. The Renault 4 was originally regarded as a rather small estate at the time of launch, however later became regarded as an early hatchback. The front-wheel drive family car marked the first of its kind produced by the Renault brand, which later became famous for the Renault 5, Twingo and Clio. The 'Quatrelle' therefore is genesis for the Renault brand. During its lifetime, the Renault 4 received very little cosmetic and mechanical modification, aimed squarely throughout its life as an entry level stepladder through the motoring world's glass ceiling. The final models of 1992 equally lacked the creature comforts as did the earliest examples, but still continued to sell strongly regardless. Different body types did exist throughout the course of its long reign. Initially the simple hatchback Quatrelle in addition to the less powerful and ill-equipped R3 were available, a pick-up truck, a panel van (Fourgonette), an off-roader (Sinpar 4x4) and a cabriolet (Plein Air). The Fourgonette became particularly iconic in France, commonly referred to as the Boulangerie van. The Fourgonette van even continued on sale until 1993, becoming a common sight across France until its replacement by the Renault Express/Extra, based on the second generation Renault 5. Sales proved so strong, that even following the introduction of the Renault 5 in 1972, the 4 continued in production for further decades. So this was the first front-wheel drive small Renault ever made, who cares? Well millions of people worldwide associate France with many products. Most Netcars readers will immediately recognise Champagne, Brie and the baguette as typically French products. Also many will also recognise a French film by its quirky and artistic structure. Similarly, certain cars become synonymous with the French automotive industry and culture. The Citroen DS and 2CV will forever remain architects of a formerly romantic backdrop to Parisian and French life, whereby a man could refer to a youthful woman as 'mademoiselle' without being labelled a sexist and racial unrest was not common place. The Renault 4 was another pioneer of this beautiful illusion. Whether scaling the Pyrenees mountain roads or strolling l'avenue des Champs Elysees, the Renault 4 was home. Thousands of rusting examples still litter the streets from the beautiful Cannes to the derriere of France around Calais. Relics of a bygone era, most are sadly doomed to terminal rust as their numbers are rapidly decreasing. However this increasingly rare sight still helps to maintain a character that the current common place Peugeot 206+ and Renault Clio just don't create. The R4 also appeared in countless films and TV series, art work, music videos and other forms of media. The Renault 4, along with the Citroen 2CV, mobilised the masses. With an appeal ranging from farmers to young learner drivers, from the Gendarmerie to the local Boulangerie, a simple design became a symbol of hope and affection across France. Furthermore, as production spanned the globe, the appeal did similarly. The Quatrelle saw particular success in markets in South America, including Columbia where it became a strong seller.

The car is a hybrid between a Ferrari F355 Berlinetta, which had suffered a bad accident, and an old and rusty Citroen 2CV Furgonette. The car has been created by a body shop near the lake of Como, in the north of Italy. To understand in which way the car has been assembled consider it as a normal Ferrari F355 without the body and put on it the body (a bit modified) of a 2CV Furgonette. The car as a power of about 400 BHP and the symphony of the 3.5 liters V8 engine has been improved by installing a new Capristo Exhaust system. In the video you can hear the fantastic Ferrari V8 engine sound making a nice stat up and followed by some huge revs. Link To My Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/19Bozzy92?feature=mhee THANKS FOR WATCHING AND SUBSCRIBE!!!
