Renault 14 TS
If the Renault 14 made it to stardom due to a publicity comparing it a pear, it was also due to its very modern aesthetic for the time. This TS version arrived in 1979 to propulse it back into the public eye. With its 7 tax horsepower, this berline was equipped with a far more agreable dashboard as well as several aesthetic modifications such as new blinkers. Its engine, baptised X, was studied by the Française de mécaniques (the French institute of mechanics). Ironically, the 1360cm3 with its 70 horsepower would eventually be used in several of its rival’s PSA cars in the years that followed.
