Rear Engine Oddity: 1958 Renault 4CV

The Renault 4CV, also known as quatre chevaux, was a compact economy car with a rear-mounted engine. It was crafted as France’s counterpart to the VW Beetle and enjoyed global sales between 1947 and 1961. Unveiled at the 1946 Paris Auto Show during the post-war era, the 4CV quickly earned the moniker “la motte de beurre” (the butter lump) due to its distinctive shape.
