Renault Celebrates 50 Years of the Renault 8 Gordini

Renault will be entering five classic Renault 8 Gordinis in the 17th Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique beginning on January 24, 2014. The event is only open to cars that participated in the┬áRallye Automobile Monte-Carlo between 1955 and 1980. Renault’s five teams will begin in Reims in northeast France and follow the route to Monaco in the French Riviera.

The Renault 8 Gordini was first released in 1964 and came with an 89 horsepower engine and a four-speed manual transmission. And you could order it in any color you liked, as long as it was blue with white stripes.
