Further info:

This racey-looking Evocation recalls memories of the competition Renaults that took a hat-trick of victories on the Tour de Corse rally and helped discover such racing stars as the Jean-Pierres Jabouille and Jarier. By the launch of the Dauphine-based R8 model in 1962, former race driver and constructor Amedeo Gordini had been retained by Renault to add some pep to its cooking Saloons, and it was fitting that the fastest of the R8 derivatives, the Renault 8 Gordini, should carry his name. Originally only available in Blue with two stick-on White stripes, it sported a tuned engine of 89bhp mated to a four-speed close-ratio gearbox. Handling was tamed by uprated suspension. The Evocation offered rides on split-rim alloy wheels and features a sports steering wheel and a quartet of spot lights. It comes complete with the original service book containing stamps to 1984 and a selection of old Spanish MOTs.
