The idea for the Renault Spider was formulated in the early 1990s: in the
Body and chassis
midst of a revival after a difficult second half of the 1980s, Renault wanted
Class Sports car
a car to promote it as a sporting brand (similar to theRenault 5 Turbo from
a decade earlier). The Spider was intended to both serve as a racing car, in Body style 2-door roadster
a one-make series organized by Renault, and as a road car. The first Layout RMR layout
prototypes for Project W94, as it was known at the time, were completed Powertrain
in mid-1994 and a concept version was presented to the public at the
Engine 1,998 cc F7R 16-valve I4,
Geneva Motor Show a year later. The car went on sale in early 1996,
150 PS (110 kW; 148 hp)
assembled at the Alpine factory in Dieppe. Left hand drive versions were
first produced with an aeroscreen device the same as the race cars. In Transmission 5-speed manual
1997, a version with a full glass windscreen and wiper was made Dimensions
available. Wheelbase 2,343 mm (92.2 in)

Approximately 1800 cars were produced through 1999. The UK market Length 3,795 mm (149.4 in)
only imported the windscreen version and 100 right hand drive cars were Width 1,830 mm (72.0 in)
produced. Height 1,250 mm (49.2 in)
The Spider was the first ever road car badged as a Renault Sport and the Curb weight 930 kg (2,050 lb)
Brand name has subsequently been used for all high performance Renault
cars that are developed by the Renault Sport division which is a separate company with the Renault-Nissan Alliance.

Designed from the outset as a driver's car, the chassis was made of aluminium for its combination of low weight and substantial
strength, while the actual bodywork is a plastic composite. Unusually, the Spider did not have a roof, either folding or hard-top. The
gearbox and the engine were one unit transversally fixed in an oscillating hinge (an arrangement inspired by aeronautical design),
which all but eradicated the interference of engine vibration with the chassis, and the pedals of the Spider were adjustable as well as
the seat so the driver could achieve a better driving position. Power for the Spider came from a version of the 2-litre F7R engine from
the Clio Williams and Mégane Coupe, producing 150 PS (110 kW; 148 hp). Either a windscreen or a small wind deflector was fitted,
with the driver wearing a helmet in vehicles without a windscreen.

Spider in motorsport
From the outset the Spider was intended to be the basis for a new one-car racing
Renault Sport Spider
series. Renault had been running these championships since the early 80s with the 5
Turbo, 21 Turbo, and Clio models. A special Spider Trophy edition was designed Category One-make
and built for the purpose, with the engine tuned to produce 180 bhp (134 kW). The racing
Spider championships ran for several years as support series to larger championships Country United Kingdom
such as the British Touring Car Championship(in which it is remembered for having Inaugural 1995
produced one of that series' top drivers of recent years, Jason Plato, who won 11 out season
of 14 races in the inaugural year of the UK Spider Cup). In 1999 Andy Priaulx beat
Folded 1999
Plato's record of eight successive race wins in the Spiders by taking a clean sweep of
13 wins in all 13 races. He also qualified for each one on pole position and took Constructors Renault
fastest laps in all but two of the events.
