The Jury of the Italy’s prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, presented the award for the Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year to Laurens van den Acker, Groupe Renault’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Design, for the Renault TreZor concept.
First shown at Paris Motor Show last September, Renault TreZor has previously won Concept Car of the Year at the International Automobile Festival in Paris and Concept Car of the Year at the Geneva Car Design Awards from a panel of top car designers.
The prestigious Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este has been held since 1929 on the shores of Lake Como in Italy. The annual event attracts car enthusiasts and collectors who come from across the world to celebrate automobiles as precious and timeless works of art.
To enter in the prototypes and concept cars category, Renault TreZor had to meet a set of rigorous selection criteria as a working concept car with high-quality and original styling. TreZor ticked all the boxes. The concept car showcases the design cues of future Renault models and is powered by an all-electric motor derived from the world of Formula E with maximum power of 260kW (350hp) and peak torque of 380Nm.
Stéphane Janin, Renault’s Director of Concept Car Design, commented: “This award testifies to the fine judgment of great car collectors, who consider automobiles to be works of art. It recognises the work of our designers who were part of this fantastic project.”
