Renault Be Bop Concepts

Extremely cool and bristling with clever ideas, Renault‘s Be Bop twins represent an interesting experiment in sports car and sport-utility gene-splicing. The autocross-ready Be Bop (above), carries a Renault Sport badge and features front-wheel-drive, a six-speed sequential manual gearbox, and a 225-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter in-line four. The off-road-themed Be Bop (bottom) sports 21-inch Michelin PAX run-flat knobby tires, loads of ground clearance and four-wheel drive. Among their particularly nifty features, the Be Bops feature motorized rear seats that fold and disappear beneath the fronts, thus maximizing cargo space.
