Re­nault Sport Spi­der

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Drive-it Day Special The 50 Greatest Drives - Mur­ray Scul­lion

Mas­sive fun, mid-mounted en­gine, scis­sor doors. No, it’s not a Lam­borgh­ini Coun­tach or Di­ablo. It’s a Re­nault Sport Spi­der. It’s des­per­ately un­prac­ti­cal – so much so that it doesn’t even have a roof. It’s a me­chan­i­cal beast that was in­tro­duced in 1996, but at times feels straight out of 1966 – it doesn’t have power steer­ing, trac­tion con­trol, or even a brake servo. Ev­ery­thing re­quires the strength of a prop-for­ward. These senses are all the more present be­cause your back­side is skim­ming along the ground. Fab­u­lous fun.
