The Renault MT was a compact sport automobile manufactured by Renault from 1923 to 1925.

Details and Evolutions[edit]

The Renault MT was presented in the 1923 Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris. The project was created and designed by Labourdette and Louis Renault together with the Renault KJ, as a middle-class car with an alternative style for 3 passengers. It was produced in Skiff or boat tail bodystyles. The Renault MT's front was very similar to the Renault KJ. Production ceased in 1924 as Renault replaced this model with the Renault NN.
