Product Description

Adapted from Heller:

The Renault R8 was the first car offering accessible sports performance with a standard car budget. Its oversteer behavior (it drifts from the rear) due to the engine placement in the rear makes it great for sporty driving for experienced drivers but also for all skid lovers.

Amedee Gordini, nicknamed "the sorcerer", transformed the original block (Cleon Fonte of 956 cm3) while raising its cubic capacity to 1108 cm3 (77,5 ch DIN / 95ch SAE). The most significant modification was the adaptation of a hemispherical cylinder head (V-valves and central plugs) and the addition of two Solex horizontal dual-body carburetors. With a top speed of 170 Km / h, the R8 Gordini is one of the fastest cars of its time.

A month after its presentation, the R8 Gordini kept on winning for nearly 10 years (Tour de Corse, Rally Morocco, Australian Rally Championship, Rally Ivory Coast, Rally Portugal). The last R8 Gordini was manufactured in May 1970.

A total of 11,607 Renault Gordini were produced, including 8,981 for the 1300 version alone. A true icon of a generation, its performance remains intact.

This model kit will measure about 16.5cm long, 6.3cm wide, and 5.6cm tall when completed, and features 2 different marking options.
