Louis Renault was a pioneer in automobile design in the infant French motor industry, building his first car as early as 1898, mounting a De Dion Bouton engine on the front of a primitive tubular chassis frame. Ever the innovator, he broke from traditional design by featuring a sprung live rear axle, a feature soon to be copied by his contemporaries. With the benefit of substantial financial backing, production began at Billancourt of 1¾hp and 3hp cars, with the hugely successful 4½hp models appearing first for the 1900 season.

From the outset Renault saw the benefits to be gained from involvement in motor sport and, along with his brother Marcel, he took an active part in this new sporting activity. Although the headlines were stolen by larger cars, Renault, with their voiturettes, were highly regarded, achieving class successes in continental events and in the great French City-to-City races. In the 1901 Paris-Bordeaux Race, Louis Renault led a victorious team of four Renaults, taking first place himself in the voiturette class and completing the epic journey in just 9 hours and 31 minutes, with brother Marcel in second place just eight minutes behind, with Oury and Grus on similar Type E cars following in third and fourth places.

In 1902 Renault were to achieve their ultimate success, Marcel Renault stealing outright victory in the Paris-Vienna Race at the wheel of a 16hp model, covering the distance at an average speed of 39.2mph. These racing victories kept Renault at the forefront of the public mind and resulted in sales orders and production figures which were the envy of their competitors.

This 4½hp Type D Renault is powered by an Aster vertical, single-cylinder, water-cooled engine with atmospheric inlet and mechanical exhaust valves and features the traditional side-mounted radiators, so familiar on early Renault models. It enjoys the benefit of a three forward speed gearbox.

This car was acquired by the present owner from overseas in 1990 and stripped for restoration in the present ownership. Some restoration photographs are on file. A dashboard plaque suggests that it participated in the Dutch PAC’s Utrecht to Zandvoort Run in 1962. Dashboard plaques also confirm active and successful participation in The London to Brighton Run by this car over the last eighteen or so years, many of those runs completed successfully with "four-up".

The car has shared a stable with Edwardian Rolls-Royce and De Dion Bouton motor cars and a fine vintage Bentley and has been carefully maintained in good running order, although the vendor reports that the original reverse gear design is fragile and therefore little used. The attractive rear-entrance tonneau coachwork is liveried in dark blue with fine red coachlining and furnished with burgundy coloured, pleated upholstery. Driving equipment includes candle side lamps and a single brass rear lamp, a brass bulb horn and the car sits on 710x90mm front wheels with 810x90mm rear wheels.

The Renault marque is admirably catered for by the active Renault Frères Club with its excellent events both in the UK and on the Continent and of course this car is eligible for all events organised by the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain, being eminently suitable for the highly popular singles and twins rallies. It comes with VCC Dating Certificate no.2104, Swansea registration document, current road fund licence and a recently issued MoT certificate. It is also entered for this year’s London to Brighton Veteran Car Run and the vendor will offer any advice required to a new owner wishing to participate.
