This year, the ‘Mention Spéciale’ (Honourable Mention of the Jury) was awarded to Renault SUITE N°4, a concept car born from the collaboration between Renault and French designer, Mathieu Lehanneur, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Renault 4.

Renault SUITE N°4 is an original concept car inspired by the idea of a nomad hotel suite. The model features the same exterior dimensions and lines as the iconic model, but comes with a radical twist. The world of architecture and automtoives combine to create an open-air hotel room where the rear section and hatch are replaced by polycarbonate windows, the body is painted with a special finish to give it the mineral feel of cement, and the front grill is made in polished aluminium for a permanent effect of fluidity.
