Paris, Tokyo: Pierre Sabas with Renault Clio

After working for Jaguar as the exterior designer, Sabas joined Renault in 2012 in the same role. He has worked on such exteriors as the concept models Eolab Concept and the Clio V. The story of Episode 1 is the exterior design of the 5th generation Clio (Name in Japan: Lutecia), which is one of the symbolic models of Renault worked on by Sabas. What did he create and what novelty did he think of for this iconic model that has been a long-time bestseller for over 30 years?
