No video selected.


Rocco Motto had a close relationship with racing driver and Renault dealer, Louis Rosier. "Ecurie Rosier" was originally set up to run Rosier's Talbot-Lago T26 and later evolved to an actual team running Maseratis 250F and finally Ferrari 500s simultaneously for Rosier and another driver.

Rosier's Renault dealership in Clermont-Ferrand was one of the largest Renault dealerships in France. Together with Rocco Motto, Rosier himself designed several Renault specials which received lightweight bodies by Motto. The Frégate based coupe pictured here was built in a limited series.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
