Gordini is a French motor racing brand that dates back to the 1950s when Amédée Gordini a Formula One racing driver and engine tuner built Renault based competition cars with a famous French Blue colour scheme and trademark twin white stripes.
The brand was sold to Renault back in the 60s but a selection of racing and tuned road cars continued to be built. Renault have now made the step to revive the classic name for sporty versions of their current line-up. The chic Renault Wind Roadster is the latest in this line to get the treatment.
The coupé-roadster bears the classic colours both inside and out. Even the 17 inch alloy wheels are colour matched. There are white door mirrors grille trim and rear wing contrasting with the Malta blue bodywork. The interior gets matching black and blue leather upholstery with signature blue and white striped door straps and steering wheel. A leather gear lever gaiter and polished metal gearknob bearing the Gordini name complete the look.
The new car will be publicly released at the Geneva Motor show on March 1st 2011.
