Renault 4CV
The 4CV was originally conceived and designed covertly by Renault engineers during the German occupation of France during World War II, when the manufacturer was under strict orders to design and produce only commercial and military vehicles. A design team led by Fernand Picard, Charles-Edmond Serre and Jean-Auguste Riolfo envisioned a small, economical car suitable for the economically difficult years which would inevitably follow the war.

The first prototype was completed in 1942 and two more prototypes were produced in the following three years. Pierre Lefaucheux tested the 4 CV prototype at Renault’s Herqueville estate. The 4CV was ultimately presented to the public and media at the 1946 Paris Motor Show. The cars went on sale a year later.

The Renault 4CV is an economy car produced by the French manufacturer Renault. As the first French car to sell over a million units, the 4CV was ultimately superseded by the Renault Dauphine.

The 4CV was a four-door sedan of monocoque construction, 3.6 meters in length with rear suicide doors and using Renault’s Ventoux engine in a rear-engine, rear-wheel drive layout.

The car’s name, 4CV, translates from the French for four cheveaux or four horse, specifically four taxable horsepower.
