Régie Renault launched in 1962 the Renault R8 wich will be, with the R10, the last car with a motor placed at the rear until the appearance of the Twingo III in 2014.
Amédée Gordini, nicknamed "The Sorcerer", will transform the original block (Cléon Fonte of 956 cm3) while raising its cubic capacity to 1108 cm3 (77.5 ch DIN / 95 ch SAE). The most significant modifications will be the adaptation of hemispherical cylinder head (V-valves and central plugs) and the addition of two Solex horizontal dual-body carburetors.
The model of this car was developed by our company in 1968. Rich of 117 pieces to assemble and paint oneself, this model had not been produced by Heller since 1985.
50 years later, Heller reissues this mythical model by bringing a new choice of high-quality decorations printed by our friend "Cartograf".
The upholstery, tires and various accessories are made of a new flexible material that is assembled using the classic model glue
Available in a classic box or in a complete kit with glue, brush and paints.
