I intend to write a longer piece about this car over the coming week but I wanted to share some of my pics of the car with you.

As I’ve gone back over the shoot and my memories of driving it, one word kept coming back to me: Simplicity. And it’s not simplicity in a cheap, cut-price version of something else kind of way. This is satisfyingly simple.

    Can’t say I’m a huge fan of the inset Renault logo at the front…makes it appear a tad pug nosed. The rest of it is gorgeous though, a French Aston Martin.

    Yeah, you’re right Rob, it’s a pretty weak ungainly treatment. Once you start thinking about where else you could put it though there aren’t really that many options. You could put it down in the big mouth but then you’d break up that wonderful expanse of egg-crate grill. It might be as simple as reducing the size a bit. Glad you like it overall though.
