The Renault Laguna concept which the French company rolled out
at the 1990 Paris Motor Show was a dramatic and futuristic sports
car styled by an up and coming designer, Jean-Pierre Ploue, who would
later go on to become the design director at PSA-Peugeot-Citroen.
The Renault Laguna concept has nothing in common with the rather run
of the mill production Renault Laguna which would appear shortly after.
Instead it was intended to be an attention grabbing dream car which
would inject some excitement into the company.
The car was extremely low slung, and it was light too. There was no
roof, and no proper windscreen. Instead the driver and passenger wore
custom made visors, which also had speakers inside to act as the cars
audio system. It was far-fetched and impractical to say the least.
Powering the 1990 Renault Laguna concept was a 2.0 litre 4-cylinder
engine which produced 210 horsepower. Top speed of the car was 155
