L'Espace Renault

Fabrice Maze - 52'


The Renault Espace, born in 1984, was the first "unibody saloon" marketed in the world. It represents the last innovative concept in the history of the 20th century automobile.
Conceived as a vehicle in its own right, this monovolume, characterised by its flat floor and modular interior, was to be copied by all the major manufacturers and gave rise to a new range of unibody cars such as the Twingo and the Scénic.
Philippe Guédon, who presided over the destiny of Matra Automobile, was the designer. Gifted with an original and innovative spirit, he has a taste for art, architecture and automotive history. He invites you to discover the different generations of the Espace, from the first P 23 model of 1984 to the P 52 of 1996 and to share the saga of the "Voiture à Vivre".


R8 Gordini,
le temps des copains

Fabrice Maze - 26'


The R8 Gordini appeared at the 1964 Paris Motor Show in its blue livery with white stripes. Amédée Gordini had enchanted the engine, which developed 95 HP for a top speed of 170 km/h. In 1966, the already popular R8 Gordini was equipped with a 103bhp 1300 engine with a top speed of 175km/h. The little blue car came with a four-headlight grille, extra fuel tank and 5-speed gearbox, and went on to enchant a whole generation of drivers, revealing talent both in road racing and in the R8 Gordini Cup.
