Bonjour: ’63 Renault R8
We featured that beautiful A110 that had its roots in the R8. So we went about searching for an R8 to feature and as luck would have it, we found a neat one. This is our first R8 and we remember them vaguely. We had some experience with an R10 a while back and they were fun and comfortable to drive. This one has some rally racing intentions with a pair of serious Cibies and a hopped-up motor. It looks pretty good finished in oxygen blue and we don’t know if that is the original color but it doesn’t matter here. It looks the part. The engine compartment looks clean and the seller says it runs well after the rebuild. The interior appears okay too. The shifter looks pretty delicate for a car – any car, but it probably works fine. The seller says the gearbox is in good shape too. The listing details the other recent repairs and notes some of the original features of the R8. You’ll get a lot of extra parts with this one if you want to pony up $10,500 for the whole shebang.
