Sexy Renault Trezor Voted Most Beautiful Concept In Villa D’este

Renault Trezor

This sexy shape can also hit 60 miles per hour in under four seconds.

It’s been nearly 30 years since Renault offered a car in the United States, and the few models that did make the cut were rather forgettable. If any of them had looked even remotely like the stunning Trezor concept, however, it’s a fair bet the manufacturer would’ve never left in the first place.

The long, low, and sleek Trezor looks so good in fact, that it was crowned as the most beautiful concept car at Italy’s prestigious Concorso d’ Eleganza Villa d’Este. It’s one of the oldest car events in the world, dating back to 1929 and we must admit, the Trezor is a very proper companion for the picturesque shores of Northern Italy’s Lake Como. What makes the Trezor even more impressive is that it’s a working vehicle – a requirement to compete at the event.

We were introduced to the all-electric concept and it’s glorious one-piece clamshell roof last year at the Paris Motor Show. The two-seater’s curvaceous styling features a muscular stance thanks to beefy fender arches that contain 21-inch wheels in front, 22-inch in back. Its powertrain is derived from the manufacturer’s Formula E race car, generating 350 electric horsepower that turns the rear wheels. In full gallop, the Trezor can sprint to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds.

This isn’t the first award Renault has received for its efforts on the Trezor. Back in March it was named the 2016 Concept Car Design of the Year by a panel of 20 renowned car designers. The award was presented to Renault at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

The Trezor is only a concept, and a fairly radical one at that so we’ll almost certainly never see it enter production. Still, if this is a sign of what’s to come from Renault, it’s high time the manufacturer made a triumphant return to U.S. shores.

    They could do a toned down production version with a convertible top and price it to compete against the MX5.

      It’s a concept car. Only a single unit will ever exist, and it is not for sale.

      Charging is probably “whatever works”, as that’s not the point of the concept. Styling is, and performance a distant second.

      If it was to come to production, a lot of the under-the-hood stuff would change even if they keep the styling. So it’s hard to speculate about what it could be. But if I were to wager a guess, I’d say that we’d be looking at a >$200,000 car here.

    Beauty really IS in the eye of the beholder- to me it’s fugly besides being pointless. Now the Lucid Air…

    Besides which- with that massive clearance to the wheel arches the suspension travel must be all of 1″.
