1999 Grey Renault Sport Spider
Renault Sport Spider Like new condition
The Renault-Sport-Spider is typically a car never to be repeated and was only fully understood long after production ceased. In the 90’s car manufacturers were still able to design a car with only one thought in mind: Drive ecstasy! What with today’s strict emission and pedestrian safety demands one thing is sure; a pure sports car like the Renault Sport Spider will never hit the market again. Let’s not prevaricate, Renault had pure bad luck at the introduction of the Sport Spider. Almost simultaneously Lotus introduced its Elise which weighed a mere 752 kg in its lightest configuration. The 938 kg Renault Sport Spider seemed a bit heavy by comparison. The Renault Sport Spider did have a number of advantages over the Lotus. You could order your Spider without a front screen, it is a proper open 2-seater, the boot space is more accessible and does not get as hot, the driving position is better and above all the Renault Sport Spider engine is a lot stronger than the Lotus’s Rover K-series one. Another advantage over the Lotus is that a Renault Sport Spider is a lot rarer than a first generation Elise. We can now say that in hindsight people who were brave enough to order a Renault Sport Spider in the 90’s have come good. After 20 years the Renault Sport Spider has become a fixed feature in the lightweight sports car class. Values have always been good and of late are rising steadily. Of the planned 2,000 cars only 1,725 were actually built, of which 80 were used in a special race class.
