Renault 4 Ever Design Contest

Renault 4 Ever Design Contest

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Renault 4, Renault and Designboom have launched a contest that asks to create a new design based on the principles of circular economics. The deadline is 20 June 2011.


Renault 4L 50th AnniversaryThe Renault 4 (or 4L, pronounced “Quatrelle”) was produced from 1961 until 1992 and is the top-selling French car of all time, with more than eight million units built.

To celebrate this anniversary, Designboom and Renault have launched a design competition called “Renault 4 Ever”.

Graphics artists, architects and designers are asked to create a new design for the Renault 4L, based on the principles of circular economics: “nothing lost, nothing created, everything transformed.”

1956 Renault Project 350 Design SketchThe new car should be a people-centered vehicle, inspired by the valued of the iconic 4L: simplicity, reliability and affordability.

The submission deadline is June 20th, 2011. Application registrations will be accepted until June 16th, 2011.

The entries will be selected by a jury that includes among the others: Laurens Van Den Acker (Head of Renault Group Design Department), Birgit Lohmann (Designboom editor-in-chief), Maï Ikuzawa, founder of Bow Wow international agency.

Renault 4L Historic Rally CarThe winning designer will receive a special car: the Renault 4 driven by Michel Leclère (ex Formula 1 driver) in the 2011 Historic Rallye Monte-Carlo.

The car is based on a 1965 Renault 4L and has an approximate value of €15,000 euro.
