After the Renault 4CV "1063" and before the R8 Gordini, there was the Dauphine "1093", a sport derived from Renault Dauphine sedan, launched in November 1961 by the competition department of the Régie Renault. The bodywork and equipment are those of the Dauphine Export, but is only available in one color, the White Rejane, and decorated with a double blue stripe on the longitudinal axis of the car. In order to get approval "production car", 1,000 copies were to be assembled. But success was soon to go, with a total of 1,650 copies end 1962. For the 1963 vintage, 490 additional copies were built to meet growing customer demand. Note that this version received a 1963 black board edge and not white, and 4 disc brakes.

It was later sold and has entered on Spanish territory, where it will receive some changes of use (lighting backplate for instance).
