This Is The Most Beautiful Concept Car Of The Year
7 June 2017 - Carbuzz
Over the weekend, the sublime Renault TreZor was awarded the Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year at Italy’s Concours d’Elegance Villa d’Este.
Having seen the car at the Paris Motor Show last September, we can concur that the French concept is more than worthy of the award. This is in fact, the concept's third award in recent months. The TreZor also won the Concept Car of the Year at the International Automobile Festival in Paris and Concept Car of the Year at the Geneva Car Design Awards from a panel of top car designers.
To be eligible for this latest award, the TreZor had to satisfy a rigorous selection criteria as a working concept with original, high-quality styling. Renault's two-seater coupe builds on the company's design philosophy introduced on the DeZir concept. The interior is focused on driving pleasure utilizing a Multi-Sense system incorporating autonomous technology. The concept's all-electric powertrain links back to Renault's innovations in the FIA Formula E Championship, derived from the Renault e.dams, two-time winner of the the Formula E teams' world title. It offers up 350 hp with 280 lb-ft of torque that can propel the futuristic GT-esque car from 0-100 km/h in less than 4 seconds.
The Trezor has three drive modes, neutral, sport and autonomous. The latter allowing cross country trips while browsing the net or relaxing to a favorite movie. Stephane Janin, Renault's Director of Concept Car Design, commented: "This award testifies to the fine judgment of great car collectors, who consider automobiles to be works of art. It recognizes the work of our designers who were part of this fantastic project."
