Le Corbusier's real name was Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris, and he was born in Switzerland before becoming a French citizen later in life.
Le Corbusier believed that modern architecture, when applied to housing for people low on the socioeconomic strata, could radically improve quality of life.
This Coupé C concept was conceived when Renault's designers spent time investigating French cultural objects throughout the years.
According to Renault, the vehicle came about as designers focused on "simplicity, a visually and aesthetically pleasing structure, geometric elegance and mastery of light."
The Coupé C's most striking element is its large, metallic front grille. Sadly, due to current crash standards, a street-legal variant would have to be made of plastic.
