Renault 18 Turbo 1982 posters


Renault 18 Turbo

The Renault 18 was a medium-sized car designed and manufactured by French car maker Renault from 1978 to 1994.

Development

The Renault 18's production moved fast compared to earlier Renaults, with only eighteen months from conception to launch. Perhaps that's where the car got its name. Renaults were previously only available in some international markets like Brazil with cars like the Renault 12, but the 18 had a more universal appeal, earning it the slogan "Meeting International Requirements." In addition to France, the car also rolled off the lines in Argentina, Australia, Colombia, Ivory Coast, Mexico, Morocco, Spain, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Also, it was distributed in Algeria, Austria, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Cyprus, Finland, Germany, Greece, Indonesia, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Senegal, Slovenia, Sweden, Syria, The United Kingdom, The United States, Thailand, Turkey and Zimbabwe.

The Initial Range

The Renault 18 was first displayed at the Geneva Salon In March 1978, with sales commencing in April, after beginning production at the French Flins factory in December 1977. Initially, the R18 was only available as a four-door saloon, in TL, GTL, TS and GTS trim variations.

The TL and GTL models were equipped with the 1397cc Cléon engine, which was developed from the 1289cc engine in the Renault 12, producing 64bhp. Both models were fitted with a 4-speed gearbox.
