Following its reveal at the glamorous Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, the public will get its first chance to inspect Renault Laguna Coupé at close quarters at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. As the spearhead of the Laguna range, it has been designed to offer sheer driving pleasure and plays a key role in Renault's growth plans for the upper-range market.

Like the Fluence concept car which provided a stylish preview of the real thing, the production car irresistibly suggests sheer motoring enjoyment. The flowing lines of the newcomer's elegant, uncluttered design express timeless beauty, while its performance provides unprecedented pleasure behind the wheel thanks to the same 4Control chassis with four-wheel steering that has been widely acclaimed by European media on the GT version of Renault Laguna. In addition to the existing 2.0-litre petrol and diesel versions, the launch of this image-forging model sees the introduction of two new V6 powerplants. The brand new V6 dCi, which promises to become a benchmark in terms of performance and driving pleasure, delivering peak power of 235hp, while the new petrol-fuelled 3.5 V6 gives out 240hp. The cabin places the emphasis on quality and refinement. Incorporating the Bose® Sound System formed part of Renault Laguna Coupé's design process to provide an incomparable listening experience. Like all upper-range Renault models, Laguna Coupé comes with a three-year/150,000km warranty.

Renault Laguna Coupé's design has a great deal in common with the dynamic, racy concept car revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2007, including elegant styling and proportions which boast all the hallmarks of a truly exceptional coupé. Renault President, Carlos Ghosn, gave Renault Laguna Coupé its first public airing at last May's Festival International du Film in Cannes. The same weekend saw Renault Laguna Coupé make a guest appearance around the legendary circuit of the Monaco Grand Prix in the hands of ING Renault F1 Team's test drivers to provide a dynamic demonstration of its sporting credentials. Its racy front points to the availability under the bonnet of the Alliance's star powerplants which have been designed and developed to ensure driving enjoyment. Indeed, combined with the optional 4Control chassis with four-wheel steering, they deliver true driving pleasure.
