Renault Laguna Coupe news - Le Coop - 2008
Renault’s Laguna Coupe debuted on the
weekend at the Cannes Film Festival, followed by a couple of laps around the
Monaco GP circuit.
The first thing that strikes us is that
it’s a lot cooler looking than the saloon, but the second thing is that it’s
just not as cool as the Coupe Concept
that we saw in Frankfurt last year.
Cars rarely end up looking as good as
their concepts, though - but where have those awesome smoked wheels gone? - so
we’ll reserve judgement until we see one in the car park.
Details are still fairly hazy too, but it
will come with either of two V6 engines: a diesel with 237bhp and 243lb ft, or
the petrol out of the Nissan 350Z, detuned slightly to 232bhp and 332lb ft.
It will arrive at 62mph in under seven
seconds via an auto six-speed transmission, has the same four-wheel steer as
the saloon, and turns up on either 17- or 18-inch wheels.
We do like
that boot, though. It’s a bit V8 Vantage.
