There is a very good reason this is the car the video games choose to emulate as a winning model. 

There is something timeless about the blue, advertising covered bodywork of this Renault 17. It clearly showcases its pedigree sat on the racetrack, but surrounded by fallen leaves in the last shot this seems like an artistic masterpiece. I would have truly loved to see it on the road, but that penultimate shot with the headlights blazing is about as close as it going to get. All the same this reminds us of what racing should be all about, the cars!
