Developed in South Africa with motor racing top of mind, the "Alconi" was sold through the South African Renault dealership network as a hot version of the popular rear-engined Renault R8.
South Africa was motorsport mad in the '60s, and so success on the racetrack often translated into sales. For those who couldn't afford a Gordini, the Alconi proved a viable and nearly-as-fast alternative. It sprinted to 100kph in just over 12 seconds, very nippy for the day.
Only 50 prints (in A2 and A3) will be produced and are numbered by hand (bottom right-hand corner). Looks best behind glass and with a thin frame (not included).
