The TREZOR Star
A subtle homage to an illustrious past
The bold and sensual TREZOR turned many heads at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, at the rear of the car a five-pointed star is niched behind the Renault logo like a jewel in its setting. The Silver Star with its slight patina effect would almost go unnoticed to an uninformed eye, especially for those not fully acquainted with Renault’s history. And yet this extremely discreet, unostentatious star is full of history and prestige. It had already lived a very full life before gracing the TREZOR concept car. The star was the emblem used on a pre-war Renault car, the Reinastella. It was the signature appearing on the famous high-end Stella models that helped to forge the brand’s reputation.
TREZOR was enhanced with this “jewel” on an initiative of Stéphane Janin, Director of Concept Car Design. More than a simple nod to history, this authentic object is a true testament of Renault’s past on a vehicle that symbolizes the future. In the same vein as the Stella models, TREZOR is an exceptional vehicle, an electric GT previewing the styling direction of future Renault cars.
As historic Renault vehicles were worked on by the greatest coachbuilders of their day, so the TREZOR dashboard
in dark red wood was created in partnership with the French company KEIM-cycles, renowned for its know-how in the design of bespoke wooden bike frames providing high-level performance. TREZOR represents the very best in the French motoring spirit, focused on driving pleasure and travelling comfort and featuring premium materials such as wood and leather. Combining craftsmanship and technology, it previews the ever more refined, connected and pure interiors of future Renault models.
