Renault’s partnership with Gibson has resulted in the one-off Wind ‘Gordini by Gibson’ show car plus five striking Gibson SG ’61 guitars in Gordini colours, to celebrate Rock En Seine music festival.
The Gordini Gibson Renault Wind comes with exclusive leather seats with real guitar strings, in addition to a host of other rocking details, such as embroidered Gibson logos feature on the seat backs and blue leather-trimmed dashboard, and guitar potentiometer knob used for the audio system’s volume control, which is a very nice touch.
As for the Gordini Guitar, it’s a reissue of the original 1961 SG, and feature Gordini blue and two white stripes plus a Gordini logo on the headstock which tops its ebony neck. Those festival goers who take part in the Gordini guitar solo competition will get a chance to play the guitars and possibly won it based on the number of votes they receive on the web for their playing.
“We had tremendous fun designing the Wind-based ‘Gordini by Gibson’ show car and carrying Gordini’s visual identity over to the Gibson SG ’61 guitar,” says Julia Macfarlane, colours and materials designer at Renault. “I hope that we succeed in conveying the passion that fired us throughout the project and that visitors to the Rock en Seine festival will like the result.”
