At the Silverstone auction on March 27, an unusual French sports car, the 1997 Renault Sport Spider, with low mileage, will be put up for sale. It is distinguished by the presence of a full-fledged windshield and a right-hand drive: only six dozen such cars were assembled in Renault.
The two-seat mid-engined sports car without a roof was the first model that the French brought to the market under the Renault Sport brand. Spider production started in 1996 and lasted until 1999, with all commercial vehicles assembled by hand. The spider did not have a direct heir.
- The all-aluminum chassis with independent suspension was designed from the ground up, and the Renault Sport Spider was powered by a two-liter engine from a Clio Williams hot hatch. The spider weighed only 930 kilograms, so the 150 hp engine developed. enough to gain the first 100 km / h in 6.9 seconds.
- The copy prepared for the auction was made specifically for the UK market and traveled 7800 miles (approximately 12.5 thousand kilometers) in its lifetime. Sellers claim that the car has recently undergone full maintenance, including the replacement of all technical fluids and some parts (for example, the timing belt and the water pump are mentioned). For the past 16 years, the sports car has been owned by the same owner and has been stored in a dry garage all this time.
In addition to the necessary documentation, the buyer will be given a set of accessories (Renault Sport jackets and caps, as well as a scale model of the spider), a set of spare parts and a rare registration plate K5 MMS. The estimated selling price of the sports car has not been specified.
- In November last year, a buyer for one of the exotic Renault was not found: the deal to sell a modified Formula 1 style electric car Twizzy, one of only five built, did not take place. For the car they planned to bail out 26.6 thousand dollars.
