Renault Fuego Sports Coupe Review

Designed by Robert Opron (who also penned the futuristic looking Citroen CX and SM), the Renault Fuego was a handsome coupe that could accommodate four adults along with their luggage. Aerodynamic, stylish and somewhat unusual, the Fuego makes for an interesting classic buy, if you can find one that has not rusted to bits.

Just a handful was sold in Malaysia at a time when the Toyota Celica and the Nissan 240Z were the segment favorites. To start, the basic Fuego had an 110bhp 1995cc engine that did little to excite even when coming down Genting Highlands. Then there was the 132bhp turbocharged 1565cc engine which delivered a little more promise.

When you do find one, please note that there will be plenty of hidden rust, broken plastic bits in the cabin due to heat and fatigue of the years which will be hard to replace. If the current owner has replaced the broken bits and restored the car panels then it is worth the effort to own and enjoy.

Engine 1565cc, in-line 4-cylinder
Power 132bhp @ 5500rpm
Torque 148Nm @ 3000rpm
Top speed 118mph
0-60mph 9.3sec
Gearbox Five-speed manual
