Renault 15 Coupé (1971-1980)

Granted, not the best looking car here on the site, but still, a piece of motoring history and therefore perhaps interesting to somebody. This Renault 15, funny nose and all, is actually very much the Renault 12 as a coupé version, but who’s complaining? The car is funnily ugly in my eyes, but somehow I really can appreciate it. Mind you, I would want to own one for the life of me, but still. That dull nose, the sunken back…

I have googled my way around, but can’t really dig up nice facts or figures about the car. It has a dull engine, dull performances, no superhero or sexy lead character of a movie drove one of these on the silver screen, really a noticeable unnoticeable car 🙂 But if anybody has interesting things to say, perhaps an owner or somebody who grew up with one around?
