Renault - Argos
Argos boasts light weight - just 750kg - and a clean, symmetrical shape defined by strong, bold lines. A study in pared-down elegance, flowing yet resolutely solid, Argos exudes the post-industrial purpose of a fighter aircraft. Its unashamedly minimalist shape borders on the brutal, yet it has perfect balance, reflected in the equilibrium between its exterior lines and interior curves, and underlined by the almost perfect symmetry of its bonnet and boot lines.
No superstructure, roof or even windscreen to interrupt the lines
Wing mirrors retract into front wings, and only deploy when engine is started

Refined and warm interior: soft tones and brushed satin surfaces
1239cc in-line 4-cylinder engine derived directly from Twingo
