Renault's 40th Anniversary - Blog Post #6

Renault decided to honor their 40th birthday with a special edition teapot.  Renault is a high-powered world professional of Formula 1 racing.  This year they decided to honor the anniversary with an inside joke. When trying new technology, there typically is difficulties and reliability problems.  That was the case with the RS01.  They say that when the smoking car passed Ken Terrell’s garage, Mr. Tyrrell yelled out the nickname “Yellow Teapot”.  And it stuck.  

The teapot will be in th kitchens of the Atelier Renault restaurant on the Champs-Elys√©es, but also a few will be sold online.  

The teapot definitely is more than a teapot - and represents Renault from its design, graphics, and even the colors of the racing car.
