History of the Renault Nervasport
The Renault Nervasport was a straight-eight engined sports luxury vehicle made by Renault from March 1932 until 1935. Its design was inspired by the bigger and heavier Nervastella. The Nervasport was superseded in 1935 by a more streamlined variant named the Nerva Grand Sport, which remained in production until the summer of 1937. As with many Renaults in the 1930s, type modifications, as well as minor aesthetic facelifts and enhancements, were common.
The first 'TG 5' Nervasport debuted in March 1932. It featured a 4241 cc flathead inline-eight engine powered it. It was noticeably quicker than the Nervastella while weighing 160 kg less. It has a 3,130 mm wheelbase and is taxed as a 24CV in France. This initial model is distinguished by a straight one-piece front bumper, five evenly sized vent flaps on the bonnet sides, and a rather upright grille. The automobile was regarded as robust, swift, and safe, despite the fact that it had mechanical brakes. Unlike the Nervastella, the initial Nervasport had a three-speed transmission rather than a four-speed transmission. Only the top two gears on the Nervastella had synchro.
