Renault’s electric supercar was named the most beautiful concept car of the year — here’s a closer look

Renault Trezor

Renault’s all-electric supercar, dubbed the Trezor, was recently voted the most beautiful concept car at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, which is a prestigious competition for classic cars hosted annually on the shores of Lake Como in Italy.

The event, which took place May 26-May 28, is known for drawing some of the most expensive cars in the world. The Trezor won the top spot for best design in the prototype and concept category. In March, the vehicle was also named the 2016 Concept Car of the Year at the Geneva Motor Show. 

The Trezor, which was originally unveiled in September at the Paris Motor Show, is purely a concept vehicle for now. However, the company said it will inspire design elements in future Renault vehicles. 

Here’s a closer look at the impressive supercar:

The Trezor is powered by two batteries, one located at the front and one at the rear. This helps give the vehicle equal weight distribution. Each battery also has its own cooling system.

The hexagonal vents on the hood are part of that cooling system. They move up and down as air circulates to give the impression that the car is breathing.

On the left-hand side of the body, there’s an analogue gauge that indicates the vehicle’s charge level.
