Fluence, Renault's latest concept car, is an upmarket, four-seater sports coupé. It was presented at the Louis Vuitton Classic concours d'élégance held for the first time at Waddesdon Manor near Aylesbury instead of its traditional home of the Hurlingham Club in London.
Sporting, elegant design
Fluence is a 4.60-metre long coupé, comparable in size to a Laguna in the current Renault range. Its design continues the latest theme from Renault’s Design department, started with the Wind concept roadster in March. With its sloping, streamlined front and absence of a radiator grille, attention is focused on the diamond logo. The front contrasts with the vertical profile of the rear and its wide wings highlighted by elongated, horizontal lamps. The V-shaped rear window accords perfectly with the slanting windscreen. Two strips of glass stretch the length of the roof panel before dropping down towards the tailgate. The base of the body shell, with its aluminium finish, encircles the car and the 22" wide wheels guarantee perfect road holding.
