Renault will unveil its new concept car "Wind" at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show in March. This 2+1 roadster with a streamlined design and lively performance combines both flowing and structured lines. The interior is elegant in accordance with the "Touch Design" concept, boasting a cabin that seems to be cloaked in leather. The controls put the emphasis on ergonomics and simplicity.
The objective of Wind? To test public reaction to a compact, modern, charming roadster perhaps to be made by Renaultsport, who currently produce the high performance versions of the Clio and Mégane but, you may remember, whose first road car project back in 1997 was the Spider two seater race car which was made into a road car.
Undeniable charm and lively performance
"The exterior combines the sensuality of flowing lines with the dynamism of chamfered contours. The interior is reminiscent of a well-fitting glove. The result is a breath of fresh air in the world of roadsters," says Patrick le Quément, Renault’s Senior Vice President, Corporate Design.
Wind’s profile gives an impression of simplicity and consistency. It is made up of two defining lines. The first runs along the side of the car, curving into the front and rear wings and sweeping round the wheel arches. The second line, even more apparent, envelops the cabin and underscores the impression of protectiveness.
