'80s Ad Weekend Edition – Renault Fuego

This video is a collection of Renault Fuego advertising material, set to a retro electro soundtrack. It works pretty well, and Myrone’s Exclusive Coupé is a cool “hero car” sort of tune. It has also been combined with a BMW 850 promo with definitely satisfying results.
I’m not quite sure I need a Fuego in my life, but the clip makes for a strong case for it.

The Knight Rider vibes are noticeable here and there, too.

    Wow. By the time that was over I was wearing a Bundeswehr tank top under a Members Only jacket, and an earring next to my sideways haircut.

    The Fuego didn’t selled well in North America and Europe but it got a second chance in Argentina where it was sold until 1993.
    Here an Argentine Fuego ad from 1989.

    It’s stuff like this that keeps me coming back here.

    My best bud traded his Peugeot 504 for a new Fuego in Austin, TX back in th 80’s. He let me drive it a lot. Great fun sticking your foot in it and then…wait for it… The turbo would spool up and the boost would kick in and push you back in the seat. Nobody in Texas could pronounce the name – even though it’s Spanish. Then bits and pieces start coming unglued and it spent more time in the shop under warranty than on the road. But comfortable seats, as I remember. And lots of torque steer.

    Ah yes, the Fuego. I remember them well. I ended up with three of them at the same time, which, on reflection, was perhaps three too many. For by then, the cars were all a little worn.They were all 2.0 litre ones partially bought for mechanical spares for my Espace S1. A Fuego Turbo with a blown motor did donate it’s factory forged alloy BBS 14″wheels to the boxy wedgey MPV so I can’t say my Fuego encounters have been entirely fruitless.

    At the time, this car was extremely highly thought of among awkward high school dweebs who couldn’t afford anything better than a ’73 Honda 125.
    Or so I heard.
