Finished in a 'French Racing Blue' this factory right-hand-drive is excellent condition overall only requiring minor works to meet registration requirements. Presenting all original chrome work and wheels, this example has been well maintained and shows minimal wear for its age.

The Interior trim is set in a two-tone, red and black leather with a dash facier finished in cream, that finishes nicely over an original brown steering wheel. The original clusters and instrumentation present well with only minor TLC to the cabin needed to bring this beauty back to its release condition.
The very rare and unique Dauphine 'Gordini' would be a sound investment and an excellent addition to any collection and fits to be a suitable vehicle for classic rally or racing.
The Renault Dauphine saw production between 1956-1967 and its success saw over two million being manufactured. Its release offered numerous variants to include the Dauphine 'Gordini' (sports model). These vehicles saw motorsport success all over the world, including taking out the first 4 spaces at the 1956 Mille Miglia and winning the 1958 Mote Carlo Rally.
As a competitor to the Volkswagen Beetle and the Fiat 500, the Renault Dauphine played a significant role in pioneering the modern European economy car expectation.

Powered by the tuned 845cc 4-clinder engine, it was paired to a 4-speed manual sports transmission. The production of these were performance tuned by 'Amedee Gordini' and resulted in an increase of power to 37HP.
