The Paris Auto Show has long been a place where some of the most innovative and audacious auto designs are unveiled, and local French brand Renault has taken up the challenge seriously by unveiling a marvelous new concept car that features a roof that can be lifted up like a clamshell.

The Renault Trezor's roof peels away from the vehicle in a single piece, giving a whole new visual aesthetic and mode of engagement with drivers and passengers. Elsewhere, this sleek and curvy concept car features substantial carbon fiber bodywork that reduces weight to only 1,600 kilograms and reduces drag. The vehicle is fitted with a Formula E-inspired powertrain and benefits from a 350 horsepower output.

While this concept car features a substantial powertrain and a host of interior amenities and technologies, its clamshell roof design is its calling card and makes for a mindblowing and eye-catching design accomplishment.
