History of the Renault 8

The Renault 8 was a compact family automobile that was built between 1962 and 1973. It was based on the Renault Dauphine. The styling was attractively boxy; yet, despite the fact that the Renault 8 was 30 mm narrower than the Dauphine, the manufacturer was able to install thick cushioned front seats that were 60 mm wider, at 560 mm, than those found in the Dauphine. The 8 was powered by a brand-new 956 cc Cléon-Fonte engine that produced 43 horsepower. The engine of the R8 followed in the footsteps of the previously debuted Renault 4 by integrating a sealed-for-life cooling system. The installation of four-wheel disc brakes, a first for a saloon car of this size, was a distinguishing feature of the French-made models.
