Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Renault Fregate Limousine 1957 de Gaulle This unique Fregate limousine was built by Renault for Charles de Gaulle but never became part of the official fleet as the president seemingly preferred his Citroen-based conveyances. It did get used for visiting dignitaries though, including Eisenhower. The side windows are a touch shallow but otherwise the shape of the car looks pretty good and, as usual from Norev, the paintwork is excellent. Etched parts are used for the wipers and mountings for the official flags, which makes the heavy moulded radio aerial even more obviously out of place.
Prolific maker of die-casts, most subjects having a French conection. Particularly good for concept cars and design studies. Made in China/France
