Complete french originality


The car ran reasonably well for the first 11 months, then the fan hit the proverbial. The waterpump failed, leading to the motor being totally cooked.

General Comments:

The R11 was a smooth riding car and a willing performer. It always started, the transmission was a little clunky when cold, but when it was warm it worked perfectly.

The R11 was an unusual car. I saw only one other R11 in my travels.

After the engine meltdown, I sold it for two dozen beers.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
