RENAULT CELTAQUATRE ADC1 COUPÉ

To respond to the launch of the Citroën Traction Avant, Renault presented a new, more conventional model called Celtaquatre in 1934, focusing on classic styling and safety.

An innovative vehicle

Celtaquatre preserved a traditional architecture with rigid rear wheels and a separate sidemember chassis. For its time, the style was innovative.

 

The compact Celtaquatre measures less than 4 metres in length. It is based on a tried-and-tested powertrain, driven by a new 1463 cc 4-cylinder engine.

Revamped coachwork

The original model would change in the following years: new bodywork types appeared, including a cabriolet, a convertible coach and a utility version that would serve merchants and taxis. Alongside the 4-door saloon, there would be a small coupé whose originality was not lacking in charm.
