Renault Wind Gordini special edition revealed

The two-seat roadster was only released in the UK last year, but it hasn’t stopped the French manufacturer adding its famous racing colours to a special edition model.

The Gordini colours, most often seen as a blue body with white stripes over the bonnet, were first used in the 1960s and 1970s on racing cars and road cars designed by Amedee Gordini.

The famous stripes are complemented by white door mirrors, grille trim and rear wing, a gloss black fold-down roof and 17" black diamond alloy wheels.

Renault’s fourth Gordini model – the others were the Twingo, Twingo RS and Clio – will be unveiled for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show in March before it is made available to UK buyers.

Unlike Gordini models from the past, Renault is saving the sportiest touches for its Renaultsport models, meaning the modern Gordini range is more stylish than sporty.

In keeping with the other cars in the Gordini range, the Renault Wind Gordini features black and blue leather upholstery inside, a blue leather steering wheel and metal gear lever bearing the Gordini name.

In terms of equipment, Renault promises ‘the finest available’, indicating this will sit at the top of the Renault Wind range.

This means prices and engine details are expected to be announced closer to the launch date of the special edition model, but it is expected to be the most expensive car in the Wind line up.

The Renault Wind Gordini special edition was first announced at the end of January on Renault’s Facebook page and so far only a series of images have been released before its full unveiling next month.
