Renault dazzles with the breadth and success of its motorsport history at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, reveals three fresh debuts

Renault will feature an impressively extensive display of racing cars, land speed record cars and production models at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed as well as having three models making their global and UK debuts.

Plenty of drama will be provided by the Renaults attacking the famous Goodwood hill, from the magnificent Type AK to the Nervasport land speed record car, the slinkily rapid R.S. 01 currently contesting circuits around Europe and small phalanx of some of the Formula 1 world’s most important racers.

The story of Renault’s bold bid to change Formula 1 technology is told with a succession of increasingly successful turbocharged cars, these a welcome reminder of the marque’s glittering pedigree in the year of its return as a Formula 1 constructor.

Many will be at least as thrilled by the new Clio R.S.16 concept car, a 275hp hot hatch built by Renault Sport as a potential hint of excitement to come.

Other road cars include the cheekily appealing Twingo GT, which makes its global debut at Goodwood, while the elegantly dynamic Renault Mégane Sport Tourer and the distinctly sculptural new Scenic make their UK debuts on Renault’s impressive stand.
