The Renault Initiale concept which was introduced in 1995
was a super saloon which offered room for up to four people.
Under its unassuming, and quite frankly dull bodywork,
the Initiale hid an extremely potent drivetrain which
was based around an F1 derived 3.5 litre V10 engine which
pumped out nearly 400 horsepower. Power was sent to all
four wheels through a six-speed sequential transmission.
With this drivetrain the Initiale was capable of reaching
190 mph (306 km/h) - a turn of pace which is outstanding
even today for a super saloon.
The interior of the Renault Initiale featured luxurious
leather seating, and was light and bright thanks to a
glazed roof panel. The front seats could rotate 20 degrees
to the outside to help facilitate entry and exit. For
the rear-seat passengers an integrated DVD player and
roof mounted display screen offered movies while on the
The Initiale concept was displayed with a matching Louis
Vuitton luggage set.
