Amit living in Copenhagen owned this R16 TS Automatic -73 back in 1989 when he was just 20 years old. Those days he lived in Israel, where R16's are much more common than in Denmark.

His father bought it as cheap, first car. Later Amit has had other cars, but none of them had the spirit and soul of his first car, the R16.

The previous owner was a Renault mechanic who had fixed up the car for his wife a few years earlier. Many parts on the car was originally from other cars, like the engine, which was taken from 1978 R18.

Amit says "She went like a rocket, very powerful and comfortable to drive, like sailing in a fast boat!"
