1992 was a crazy year for Renault's designers because
not only did they develop the futuristic Racoon
concept, they also produced this, the Reinastella.
To put it politely the Reinastella was a rather far-fetched
concept designed for a fictional future in the year 2038.
It got its name from a past Renault model from 1928.
Quite why Renault wanted to design a car for 46 years
in the future is unclear. However it's obvious that the
designers were incredibly optimistic about engineering
Looking more like a personal spacecraft than a car, the
Reinastella had an open interior configuration devoid
of any visible control interfaces or instrumentation.
A single piece glazed bubble acted as roof, windscreen
and side windows.
Because of its quirky, almost comical nature Renault decided
to stall the unveiling of the concept by one day - to
the 2nd April, out of fears the public would perceive
it as a joke!
