Published in Video

Classic Renault 4 and 5 Restomod review - would you modify classics like this? Thanks for stopping by The Late Brake Show. Based in France, RFit ( is a specialist outfit for developing government approved EV conversion kits for direct fit into classic 2CV, Renault 4 and Renault 5. Why not join our Patreon gang for early access to episodes and a regular blog from Jonny? Huge thanks to The 2CV Shop and for arranging to make this video possible. These conversions are not for long range, or big performance. Instead the criteria to be type approved in France means they need to give out no more power than the original piston engine, and weigh no more, thus explaining why the original brakes and suspension are retained. Smith & Sniff is the UK's #1 automotive podcast, where Jonny and ex Top Gear and Grand Tour script editor Richard Porter chat absolute rubbish for an hour, periodically mentioning car related topics.
