1975 Re­nault 17 Gor­dini

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

How many Re­nault 17 Gor­di­nis are left in the UK? Two, ac­cord­ing to the auc­tion­eer – and here was one of them. It gen­er­ated plenty of in­ter­est, and with good rea­son – the quirky look­ing Fuego pre­de­ces­sor was a prac­ti­cal, rapid and great han­dling car. A one-owner car with 75,000 miles on the clock, the body­work wasn’t too bad – there was lit­tle or no sign of rust in the front wings, doors or rear arches and the in­te­rior was pretty tidy too while the glass had no nasty scratches and the wheels could eas­ily be re­fur­bished. All-in-all, it it thor­oughly de­served the price it made, not least be­cause it’s much more in­ter­est­ing than an equiv­a­lent Capri.
