Not a classic, not Renaultsport and often overlooked. The 19 16V was, in its day a hot hatch. Its engine (the F7P) went in to the Clio 16V and developed into the F7R for the Williams which then also went in to the Megane, Spider etc.

Now almost 20 years old an early 19 16V (phase1) is going to be eligible for classic insurance, if not quite a fully blown classic.

You've probably guessed i own a 19 16V! A cabriolet specifically a phase 1 cabriolet, of which only 33 were imported in RHD as demonstration cars for the dealerships to drive sales on the phase 2 that was to follow the next year. It has some wheels that were utilised on the Clio 16V and was Karmann assembled then finished by Renault.

Certainly is a rare one. I think that one was originally owned by Renault UK. Launched in 1992, the phase 1 was followed by the phase 2 just a few months later in the same year

Defintely an early one then! The phase 2 came around June '92. I think that Karmann did the design and engineering for the roof but they were built by Renault. I'll check

i had a phase 2 cabby before i got this. I owned them both for a few weeks and had the luxury of choosing which to drive! The ph2 has certain developments that make it nicer to use. The shape is softer and it looks much more modern. My K reg looked 10 years younger on the road.

Loved the 19 16V, i nearly bought a cab myself just for the batman style humps for the rear headrests. Decided i didnt look good enough for a cab and got the hatch instead LOL

Karmann did the design and engineering and they also built the bodyshell. This then went to Renault's Mauberge plant for assembly

I loved the shape of the Chamade back in the day. It had a proper touring car look about it.

Some excellent pics guys - good memories.

Excellent thread! Some really good examples - the ones near here are decidedly less immaculate.

I've just been having a sort out and I've found a September 1994 (so post-facelift) Renault 19 range brochure (pretty much mint), if anyone wants it. The first person to PM me their name and address can have it and I'll put it in the post.

I seem to remember they were well appreciated back in the day. In fact, I'm sure they were Performance Car's favourite hot hatch at one point.
