Renault’s Project 900 is certainly an odd-looking car, but it’s also a car designed to break new ground. It used innovative new materials and gave class-leading visibility to try to leapfrog the competition. It also seems they were trying to beat their competition in the “weird” category as well, which given they were up against Citroën was no mean feat! So, what happened to Renault’s backwards car, and what echoes of this strange but innovative design are there in today’s cars?
