Is The Renault Trezor 2017’s Most Beautiful Concept?

Renault’s all-electric Trezor concept has just walked away with the ‘Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year’ award, earned recently at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.

This award marks yet another victory for the Trezor, after being previously named ‘Concept Car of the Year’ at the International Automobile Festival in Paris, and at the Geneva Car Design Awards.

“This award testifies to the fine judgment of great car collectors, who consider automobiles to be works of art. It recognizes the work of our designers who were part of this fantastic project,” said Renault Concept Design boss, Stephane Janin.

In order to claim this latest accolade, the Trezor had to meet a set of rigorous criteria, as both a working concept as well as a car with original styling. Underneath it all, the Trezor is powered by a Formula E-derived electric motor, putting down 350 HP (260 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque.

Still, with other spectacular concepts present at Villa d’Este this year, we’re curious to know if you’d rather this award went to something like the Techrules Ren or perhaps the BMW 8-Series Concept.

    The French sure got weird taste. Maybe too much butter in their diet.

  • Mill0048

    Looks great, until the silly top opens.

    • Gustavo Adriano

      The interior is awesome, but the exterior design it’s so simple… :/ The Kaptur Concept was more my type.

      • Bill Nguyen

        My problem is the back and front lights look too similar. When the weird top opens you can’t tell which side is which.

    • Six Thousand Times

      Really? I love that aspect.

      • Mill0048

        Nothing wrong with liking it. 🙂 I guess what I dislike about it is that I know it would never make it to production. I don’t care for far-fetched concepts because I know they are improbable.

  • pcurve

    saab aero x did this 11 years ago…

  • Six Thousand Times

    Did anyone else first read this as the Trent Reznor

    • Shane

      Was going to say the same thing. This car has Trent Reznor written all over it.

      • SgtBeavis

        It looks like it could deliver a world of Hurt.

  • fabri99

    No. In the metal it just looks disproportionate. I know it is supposed to be a concept car, but it way too long, low and wide. It doesn’t look that good, some design cues are not new at all and in some ways you could say it is a bit of a bland design.

  • alexxx

    yes yes yes

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    You’ll notice they don’t show anyone getting in or out of it….let’s just say, it ain’t pretty…

    Red glass? Seriously… WTF!
