Play at any price: Renault wanted to jump on the Capri Manta Scirocco wave in the early 1970s and brought on the basis of the R 12 two coupes on the market: In addition to the R 17 in 1971, the R 15 on the market. The two Frenchmen differed externally only through the headlights and the side windows. Internally, the number of horses made the difference.
The design of the R 15 separates the spirits until today – noteworthy is the power dome on the hood, at first only 54 hp a strong sign. The top engine in the R 15 TS made 90 hp and accelerated the coupe after all to a respectable 170 km / h. In the duel with the German coupe succeeded both Frenchman no trick, in the intra-group comparison, the R 15 sold better than the R 17 due to the oil crisis.
