A Beauty Just Like Its Owner - the Renault Floride

According to the legend, Grace Kelly loved to drive her Renault so much that her heels actually left a mark on the mat of the car (her fatal accident happened while driving a Rover). The Renault Floride (also called Renault Caravelle) came out in 1958, and the company has produced as many as 117,000 units up until 1968, which was the year when they have seized production. The car was extremely popular during that decade. So popular, in fact, that even a superstar like Kelly owned one.
