Renault, in collaboration with Gibson, is celebrating its second year at the Rock En Seine music festival with the unveiling of a one-of-kind Wind Gordini and a unique ’Gordini by Gibson’ electric guitar. The new "Gordini by Gibson" will be painted in a special blue livery with two white stripes.
The blue paint will be combined with gloss black feature across the bodywork and Gibson logos on the doors. The leather seats will feature a blue and white combination with Gibson logos embroidered on the seat backs. There is also a blue leather-trimmed dashboard, white seat belt straps, and chrome air vents and door handles to jazz up the otherwise boring model.
"We had tremendous fun designing the Wind-based ’Gordini by Gibson’ show car and carrying Gordini’s visual identity over to the Gibson SG ’61 guitar," says Julia Macfarlane, colours and materials designer at Renault. "I hope that we succeed in conveying the passion that fired us throughout the project and that visitors to the Rock en Seine festival will like the result."
After the Twingo and Clio have received the Renault Sport transformation, the Wind Gordini has made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
Like with the other two models, the new Wind Gordini will be distinguished by a Malta blue bodywork with two white stripes, and Glacier white door mirrors, grille trim, and rear wing. A glossy black roof is also added to refine the look the car, as do the 17" black diamond alloy wheels and "G" badge.
The interior also gets special “Gordini” black and blue leather upholstery, blue and white door straps, a blue leather steering wheel with white stripes at the top, a gear lever with a leather gaiter, and a metal knob with the Gordini name.
Everything under the hood of the Renault Wind will remain the same which isn’t a bit surprising considering the Gordini line is limited to exterior and interior updates for the other models as well.
