Renault introduced a “racing” kettle
July 16, 1977, the company Renault debuted in Formula-1. A young team with a rush broke into the world of great racing at the first ever F-1 car with a turbocharged engine. Now Renault decided to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this event, releasing a limited series of racing … teapots.
But why teapots? The fact that the breakthrough car Renault RS01 was built on a completely new technology platform . Not surprisingly, the car was experiencing reliability problems. Often there were cases when he let loose puffs of white smoke because of problems with the engine. The head of the racing team Ken Tyrell then often called him a “yellow teapot”, as a result, the nickname and stuck to the car.
As informs Renault, the jubilee kettle is executed in aesthetic conformity with design of bolides of the company and is painted in its official colors.
Starting in September, the “racing” teapot will be exhibited in a cafe at L’Atelier Renault in Paris. Also, an anniversary souvenir can be ordered on the Internet at a price of 129 euros. Tekkult recommends hurrying with a valuable purchase – in fact only 40 pieces will be produced .
