Following the successful launch of the Twingo and Clio Gordini models, Renault’s stylish Wind Roadster is the next to receive the “French touch”. Expanding the coupé-roadster range with a version featuring the finest equipment available on the chic two-seater, this exclusive model will be presented at the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show from 1 March 2011.
A true driver’s car, the coupe-roadster proudly bears the Gordini colours. Shod with 17-inch black diamond alloy wheels, it features Malta blue bodywork with trademark twin white stripes, Glacier white door mirrors, grille trim and rear wing, and a gloss black roof. A badge marked with a “G” completes the Gordini look.
The Wind Roadster Gordini also places particular emphasis on interior design. The cabin features special “Gordini” black and blue leather upholstery, blue and white door straps and a blue leather steering wheel with the signature white stripes on the centreband. A leather gear lever gaiter and polished metal gearknob bearing the Gordini name complete the look.
But first and foremost, the Gordini name expresses a community spirit that has travelled down the years. Just as Gordini drivers of the 1960s and 1970s flashed their headlamps as a sign of recognition when they met on the road, so the modern Gordini community meets up on social networks. In an innovative move by Renault, they were the first to receive news of the Wind Roadster Gordini reveal with a teaser posted on the Gordini fan page on Facebook on 31 January.
