The idea for the Renault Spider was formulated in the early 1990′s as Renault wanted a car to promote it as a sporting brand. The Spider was expected to both fill in as a dashing vehicle, in a one-make arrangement composed by Renault, and as a street vehicle. Roughly 1800 vehicles were created through 1999.
Designed from the outset as a driver’s car, the chassis was made of aluminium for its combination of low weight and substantial strength, while the actual bodywork is a plastic composite. Surprisingly, the Spider did not have a rooftop, either folding or hard-top. Power for the Spider came from a version of the 2-litre F7R engine from the Renault Megane Coupe, producing 150 PS (110 kW; 148 hp).
