RENAULT 21 SUPERPRODUCTION

Designed for the French Supertouring Championship, this racing car was a triumph right from its launch. It was entrusted notably to Jean Ragnotti, among other drivers.

An impressive performance!

Project launch: October 1987. First race: 20 March 1988 and first time on the podium.

 

Ten races in the calendar, six victories—three for Jean Ragnotti, three for Jean-Louis Bousquet—and, by the end of the championship, positioned just behind the Audi Quattro and Porsche.

A race car with all new mechanics!

However, all its technical characteristics were new. It included a 430 hp engine, with power curbed by a blowoff valve like in Formule 1. It had a 2.35 m-long carbon fibre driveshaft, which was also used in Espace Quadra,

 

and wind tunnel tests resulted in highly effective solutions for the car's aerodynamics. A meticulous study of all the vehicle's technical specifications made the 2-litre 4x4 Renault 21 Turbo the best car of the 1988 season.
