Renault 4CV Zink 1953 by Autocult

The Unknown  

Very little is known about the car of the Swabian Renault dealer Zink, but it is certain that the creative dealer presented his unique car based on a Renault 4 CV to the public at the IAA in Frankfurt in 1953.   All in black, the coupe showed unmistakable borrowings from the then current Porsche 356. It remains unclear whether the parts were also used for this purpose, as well as the question of whether other vehicles had ever left the Swabian workshop in addition to the assembled trade fair specimen. It is also not known what the reactions of the trade fair audience were to the coupe, but it can be assumed that Renault dealer Zink thought it was so good that he pushed ahead with his project. It seemed as if he did not want to launch a small series of his roadster only for German buyers and thus perhaps surround the approval of the French factory, but he intended to join the ranks of other manufactures who offered variants based on the 4 CV under their own sales name.   Renault dealer Zink presented his car in 1954 at the factory in Boulogne-Billancourt, probably to get the official blessing of the company management. Even if nothing is known about the course of his presentation, it can be assumed that there was probably no thumbs up from the French company headquarters.
