It’s a myth that is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year! Renault’s famous 4L came out of the diamond brand’s factories in August 1961 … For a little over 30 years, nearly 8 million copies of this indestructible car have passed. A myth on wheels in the spotlight all this weekend in Côte-d’Or.
The members of the “4L – R6 Club de France”, the official club for enthusiasts of this old vehicle, a little “carved like a billhook” but so endearing, spend the weekend in our department. About thirty of them came from all over France for a stroll around Seurre, Nuits-Saint-Georges or Beaune until Monday inclusive (for some) on the occasion of a national gathering of “4L” lovers.
Victor Da Silva, works at the Renault garage on avenue Eiffel in Dijon. This enthusiast explains that in the 80s, the goal of the manufacturer was to compete with another legend of the French automobile. “It’s the so-called ‘blue jean’ car, the president at the time wanted to compete with the 2 CV so he said ‘make me a car for everyone’, that’s it”.
Never more than 110 on the highway!
These 4L fans are housed at the agricultural school of Chamblanc near Seurre. After visiting the Imaginarium of Nuits-Saint-Georges on Saturday, this Sunday morning from 8 a.m. you will be able to see them near the Hospices de Beaune, Monday morning they will visit the château d’Entre-Deux-Monts in Concoeur before resuming road home at 100-110 km / h maximum on the highway!
