Renault Laguna (1990)

Laguna is a roadster which is dedicated to “driving for the love of it”. It’s a 100 percent driver’s car, which still manages to make significant contributions to technological innovation in the area of passive safety. There’s no windscreen or roof to come between driver and the experience of driving. It’s the ideal car for any couple of getaway driving enthusiasts.

The 1996 Renault Spider was descended from the Laguna Roadster concept.
