The Renault TREZOR is one of the most striking cars you are ever going to see. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but this is something special. Packed with futuristic features, the TREZOR concept car is fast, technologically advanced, and – crucially – visually stunning. Easily one of the most enticing concept cars in recent years.

The Renault TREZOR is much more than just a pretty face, though. Every single detail on the car has been given great thought.

Video transcript:

Honeycomb kind of texture here on the top. Look how that opens up! That’s mad! How amazing is this car? What’s up guys? It’s Supercar Blondie here in Paris and I am with the Renault Tresor and I want to show you around this incredible car.

So currently I’m in drive, I’m just going to pull that back into park, and then here’s how you turn the car off. Start, start stop button, and then you’ve got to actually pull your phone out. This car is so special you guys that I’ve been trying to get a hold of this car for two years to show you what is going on.

I’ve just been looking at it on pictures and thinking I need to drive this car and this is one of the most advanced concept cars out there. You know sometimes you get concept cars that look incredible but they don’t actually drive. This one is fully drivable.

It’s been tested on the track before. It’s been driven through mountain ranges 0 to 100 in less than four seconds. Big shout out to my Supercar Blondie family.

Thank you so so much for subscribing. If you haven’t yet just click the subscribe button below the video because this is where you’re going to see the most incredible cars around the world.

Right, let’s get straight to it.

Now I know when we do concept cars sometimes you guys complain you’re like oh but it opens too slowly or whatever right? Check out how fast this closes. Boom done. Matter of seconds.

Isn’t that just crazy beautiful? And then take a look at this honeycomb kind of texture here on the top. Look how that opens up. That’s mad.

I’ve never seen that before. How beautiful does it look? It’s not just for design. It’s actually for function.

This is actually designed as an air intake. So what it does is it throws air through the batteries here in the front. So there are batteries here in the front and then batteries in the back.

This, when we open the top again I’ll show you but this hexagonal kind of honeycomb effect runs through the whole car. It’s here on the front. It’s also on the tires which I’ll show you in just a sec and then take a look at this.

This is a carbon fiber body that has the honeycomb shape all the way through. That is incredibly beautiful. I’ve never seen that before and this is just a design feature that they wanted to kind of pull the whole car together.

This is also crazy cool. This I’ve never seen before either. These taillights here.

Look how first of all this is a laser fiber light. You see how you can touch them. They’re all little beams running through here and then when you brake watch what happens.

They actually move. What? Did you see that? What? So you brake and it does that. Where have you ever seen that before? That is so cool.

You know I just love that they’re kind of thinking really outside the box with this car and the fact that it’s not just design. It is literally fully drivable which is so so cool. Open up the top again and look how when the top opens these headrests automatically move back so that you can get in easily.

The pedals here you can adjust to move towards you or back away from you just with these buttons here. You see that? And then I always have them as close as possible. And just look how big the interior is.

They’re actually really proud of this interior. It’s almost like when you open this canopy it’s like opening a treasure box to see all of the the beauty inside and the red they’ve chosen because it symbolizes romance and love. And just the lines on it are so sleek that it’s meant to be super romantic and all about yeah the future of romance and sleek design.

Are you falling in love with it? Yeah yeah I am falling in love with it. It’s so beautiful. We’re going to actually talk to Lorenz who’s the head designer here at Renault and he’s going to join us shortly.

So anything that I’ve missed we’re going to pick his brains just to see why he has designed it in this way. You see this honeycomb shape again running through the tires and what’s cool about this tire also is that it has two different types of rubber. So you’ve got the hard rubber and also the soft rubber.

The cool thing about electric cars is that you get more storage space. Instead of having this part be the engine you’ve actually got all of this as storage. This here is luggage.

So here and over here you can either use this suitcase or you can bring your own. You can actually take it out. You know take this one out fully.

I think I need…there we go. So look so you can just carry that one around. All right cool so we’re going to go for a bit of a drive.

I’ve already driven it a bit today but I want to show you internally what happens when you yeah turn it off. You’re fully like enclosed in this glass canopy and you can’t see anything. And look at the vision.

You’ve got nothing in your way which I really really like. You see all the way around and yeah they’ve tinted it red so that you know it falls in line with the romantic theme of the car. Okay right, let’s start and now drive.

Okay, headrest. I’m going to bring that forward a little bit. You ready? Okay, when I lift my foot off the brake it’s just going to go.

So here we go. Turn. I’m stopping the traffic.

Okay, zero to a hundred in less than four seconds. It’s a fast car. I just love that this car is fully functional.

You know you can literally drive this on the street. That is so cool. So so cool you guys.

Hey, how are you? Nice to meet you. Thank you so much for having us here. So this is Lawrence everyone.

And he is the man behind this incredible design. It’s awesome. I know.

When I see it outside I kind of want to get in and drive. Yeah, every time right because it’s been out for four years now right? Yeah, 2016. It was kind of the start of a new generation of Renaults.

Right. And we always want to start with a beautiful statement you know. A design of beauty but also telling a story of love and I think you already covered this.

Right right. I kind of got the romantic vibes from the car. Yeah the car tells a story and that’s always nice.

Even though you’ve had this out since 2016, every time you look at it you’re still kind of in awe right? Yeah it’s a superstar. In fact this car is traveling the world. It’s the most famous car that we have at the moment.

It’s won every single prize that you can imagine. So what kind of prizes has it won actually? Well it’s won Villa d’Este, it’s won Chantilly, it’s won Best Concept Car of the Year in Geneva. In fact I think any prize that you can imagine it’s won because it was the supermodel of the year.

It’s incredible. It’s like a celebrity guys and we get our hands on it today and I’m so happy to be able to show you this car. Well, we wanted to tell a story of a feminine and a male side because we’re a human brand.

We want this car to look as human as possible. Therefore we use very essential shapes because we feel humans are not square, we don’t have edges. But at the same time we wanted to give you a feminine and a masculine feeling.

So the hexagonal shapes are masculine. We’re using a new technology, it’s called parametric design. The computer in fact creates the surfaces because you wouldn’t be able to design every single one yourself.

We chose for the masculine side the hexagonals and then for the feminine side it’s all this and shiny and brilliant. The sleek lines. Yeah, and the two shapes are interlocking so it also gives you an impression of the male and the female shape.

Yeah exactly. All the French they know how to be romantic. In the opening it’s just like when when you have somebody who proposes he opens up the box.

This is why this whole car opens up like this. Okay so I thought it was more like a treasure chest but actually it’s an engagement ring. Exactly it’s a treasure box.

This is why it’s a treasure. That is so cool. We put even in here a sign of two rings interlocking.

Oh you didn’t. I didn’t even see that. The idea is that if you sit inside and you push this ring the car will switch to autonomous mode and you can enjoy your champagne together and you don’t have to drive.

Stop. That is so cool. Because we’re thinking you know if you want to drive we can give you an awesome experience but if you don’t want to drive we give you the most relaxing experience.

So it’s not like you stop driving but you know there’s stages in life where I don’t like to drive but there’s many opportunities where if you see a couple of curves coming up you just switch back and then you give you the best experience possible. Something like this. Is this doable on a Renault car today or very soon in the future? Can we see these kind of design elements? Never.

No it’s easy to make but imagine if you damage this what would happen you know it would be a nightmare. It’s just so costly. Yeah this is the difference between the concept car.

It’s literally a supermodel that wears haute couture you know. The impossible clothes that look good on stage on a picture but they wouldn’t be very practical in daily life. Fair enough.

What I’m really impressed with guys and I said this before is that this is a fully drivable functional concept car and you don’t get that very often when concept cars look this good they usually don’t even drive or they drive maybe five kilometers an hour. Why do you make sure that the cars are fully drivable and can go you know 160 170 kilometers an hour? Yeah we do it because we want to. It looks really good on tv you know.

Love it. We know what that’s about so you guys are working on something now right? Yeah we’re always we’re always plenty of ideas you know there’s too many of ideas. Yeah too.

Your brain is exploding. If you want to see me review the next Renault concept car this is Lawrence’s Instagram. Go give him some love.

Say you’re here because you want me to review the next concept car and we can try and make it happen. Let’s do this. Let’s do it.

Is that a deal? Yeah rock and roll. Yes I love it. Okay that’s it peeps.

Right one day in Paris just to film with this incredible car. Make sure to subscribe and click that little button as well the little bell because that’ll let you know as soon as one of these awesome cars has gone on my channel. Love you guys so much.

A massive thank you to Renault for inviting me here today and also to Lawrence for showing me around his baby the chief designer here at Renault. Right I’m out. Love you.
