A gLorious end
Finally, the legendary TX version made its debut in 1973. It stood out for its power and for its Gordini-type wheels that gave it striking looks. With its five-speed gearbox, four iodine headlamps, and rear spoiler, it marked the culminating point of a magnificent career. As well as a “car for living”, the R16 was also a great road car.

The R16 was the first model to be produced by the new Sandouville plant and sold almost two million units. A figure that reflects, first and foremost, Renault’s ability to design cars in tune with their times.
