Renault - Zo

Roadster meets trail bike                  

1998

Presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1998

Concept

Zo embodies a completely original concept of a 3-seater roadster with both sporting performance and off-road capabilities. Backing up revolutionary design with leading-edge technology, it features both an innovative suspension system which allows for equal appreciation of driving pleasure on and off road, and the all-new Renault 2.0-litre 16V direct-injection petrol engine.

Features

  • Central driver's seat with 1 passenger seat set slightly farther back on either side
  • Deliberately minimalist equipment: tachometer, fuel gauge and speedometer
  • Beetle-wing doors
  • Revolutionary suspension system using pneumatic springs combined with a hydraulic pump enabling ride height to be modified in seconds
  • Aluminium chassis from the Renault Spider
  • F5R 2.0-litre 16V direct-injection engine developing 135 bhp
  • Proactive automatic transmission
