Created in tribute to one of history's greatest architectural masters, this Renault Coupe Corbusier is a stunning modernist concept car.

The French multinational automaker designed the Renault Coupe Corbusier as a concept display for an exhibition studying modernism in car manufacturing in the 20th and 21st centuries. The Renault Coupe Corbusier honors Le Corbusier, an early 20th century Swiss-French architect, designer and urban planner. Le Corbusier is responsible for some of the world's most famous buildings, as well as a range of beautifully designed and ergonomic furniture that endless studios have attempted to mimic or copy. This Renault Coupe Corbusier takes inspiration from Le Corbusier's aesthetic and pays tribute to the great European architect.

Recently, automakers have been creating luxury aspirational vehicles that gain attention by being linked to relevant cultural moments or figures, such as the Rolls Royce created for Singapore's Golden Jubilee.
