The Ultimate Car Collection #27; 1947 Renault 4CV

 
 

The Renault 4CV is an economy car produced by the French manufacturer Renault from August 1947 to July 1961. It was the first French car to sell over a million units. The 4CV was a four-door sedan of monocoque construction, 3.6 meters in length with front suicide doors and using Renault's Ventoux engine in a rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout.

It was originally conceived and designed covertly by Renault engineers during the German occupation of France during World War II, when the manufacturer was under strict orders to design and produce only commercial and military vehicles. A design team led by Fernand Picard, Charles-Edmond Serre and Jean-Auguste Riolfo envisioned a small, economical car suitable for the economically difficult years which would inevitably follow the war.
