1902 Renault Type G

Engine no. 7773
Footnotes

“This new car [is] of larger dimensions than we have known to date because it has four very comfortable seats,” noted La France Automobile describing the new Renault Type G in November 1901, concluding: ‘Four equal wheels, long and flexible springs; a fuel tank placed beneath the seat that allows a range of 200 km; these are the characteristics of this good and attractive car that is at the peak of the reputation that Messrs Renault have made in the automobile market.’
The Type G represented a new maturity in the rapid progress of the Renault marque, which built just 500 cars in 1902 but was turning out nearly four times as many two years later.. While the Type G was powered by the trustworthy 8-hp De Dion-Bouton single-cylinder engine, it was the last new model from the little company to use a bought-in power unit; thereafter Renault would use engines of their own manufacture, designed by former De Dion engineer Viet. The use of a longer wheelbase enabled the fitting of an adequate four-seater body, the rear-entrance tonneau fitted to this car being particularly handsome.
It has, of course, Renault’s trademark transmission by propellor shaft to a live rear axle, a design that Louis Renault claimed to have invented and for which he duly collected royalties from other makers after a successful test case against Cottereau of Dijon. It also has the typical early Renault radiator system, in which the finned cooling elements comprise the bonnet sides while the top of the bonnet contains the water tank.
This well-presented car was acquired by the present owner some three years ago and has completed a number of tours in his hands, covering some 600 miles in the process. It is, he remarks, ‘a very capable little car’. It was formerly part of a collection of early Renault cars acquired by American Motors Corporation at the time that Renault had taken a major shareholding in the company and AMC design vice president Dick Teague – a noted antique automobile collector – is believed to have had a hand in its restoration. It may even have at one time been one of the 300 early cars owned during over 40 years of collecting by Mr Teague, who died in 1991.
While the early history of this car is not known, it is believed to have originally been sold new in New York; during the 1950s it belonged to a Chicago collector and was then sold to an owner in Florida before going to Michigan. It has an 864cc De Dion engine and was issued with VCC Dating Certificate 2457 in December 2004. With early Renault cars being supported by the highly active Renault Freres organisation, this is one of the most appealing of all veteran marques for the enthusiast.

Bonsoir
Juste une précision...contrairement à ce qui est écrit dans le texte en anglais ce n'est pas Cottereau de Dijon mais 
CORRE de Levallois qui a été conduit au procès par RENAULT pour le brevet de la "prise directe"


Voir le compte-rendu du procès ici :
http://la-licorne-autos.forumactif.org/t862-proces-renault-corre-dit-proces-de-la-prise-directe


c'est amusant (sic) de voir que cette info erronée est reprise même par des Clubs d'anciennes RENAULT....

Par un club d'anciennes Renault, semble-t-il Embarassed

Quant au procès, Gilbert Hatry remarque que Renault jouait sur du velours, car :
> Corre ne s'était pas contenté de copier la transmission, mais toute la voiturette ;
> aux clients qui venaient le trouver, en sa qualité d'ex-agent de la marque Renault, pour lui acheter une Renault, il proposait ses propres machines à la place.

Bonjour
Tu as complètement raison! d'ailleurs, c'est bien pour ça que différencier une Renault d'une Corre sur une photo ancienne est mission impossible !
