1907 Renault 20/30hp Roi Des Belges.

Registration Number: LN2851

Chassis Number: 8179

A simply stunning early large engined 5 litre Renault.   This car is in impeccable condition having been carefully conserved & maintained  over several decades by the current oner who is now ready to part with it due to his advancing years.  Festooned with brass wherever one looks, the spectacle as a whole is a real eye full.

The Engine at just under 5 litres capacity starts easily & runs beautifully.  An elecrtic starter is fitted but I find it rather more fun to swing it on the handle with recourse to the decompression lever.  Gears are 4 forward speeds in a sequentlal gate with reverse being found by pulling the lever aftwards.

The car has light patination of the right type & was featured prominently in the Mr Selfridge series.  It sits on Warland detatchable rim wheels a spare of which is mounted to the running board.  Splendid brass lamps adorn the front of the car & an assortment of other period lamps are found in the appropriate locations along with some modern lights for safe  night time running which could easily be removed.  A Phares Besnard acetylene generator is mounted to the running board.

To the interior is nicely worn buttoned maroon leather with red carpets.  A full length hood easily unfurls for inclement motoring.  This is a big powerful Edwardian car that compares well as a sort of Gallic Silver Ghost.  It is easy to drive & a pleasure to run along B roads in.  It was formerly a part of the renowend Sword collection a number of which cars we have handled over the years.
