Renault Safrane Biturbo 1994-1996

However, it was only available with a manual transmission, as no automatic gearbox existed anywhere in the world for a transversely mounted engine of that horsepower with AWD. Only 535 Biturbos were sold.
I saw one of these uber-rare cars today...

Thats really quite impressive. The definition of a "wolf in sheep's clothing".
Must have been seriously fast.

This car brought a huge grin to my face. Nice find, Piacki- one of your more interesting ones!

Must have been a serious choice for governments and organised crime outfits. Should have been one in Ronin...

They were. IIRC France's president still used one not that long ago. They also have SMs, but those are deemed too old.

They're good for getaways, I guess... or getting from one side of the country to the other without resorting to a private jet...

I know, the overdubbed soundtrack was very nice though! Not too sure about the chalkboard paint, though...

Yes, yes I know (and lately the C6) but as those were pretty rubbish they (I think it was Chirac) kept using the Safrane.

That actually looks real good.

One problem: how come you took only one picture of something so rare?
