Renault distributor, Juan Carlos Lutteral, always felt the need to have a more exclusive car for the Argentinian market than the usual Renault Torino, that was hugely popular*.
So in 1968, he started customising the Torino models as per client’s taste including engine and body changes. His workshop engineer Pablo Macagno experimented with several types of body shapes but what really grabbed the public attention was this model having a rear split-window glass.
He also added few features such as an improvised injection system on the 3.8 litre Jeep Tornado engine that allowed this car to have a power output of 225 hp, an air-suspension system that worked at the flick of a button (provided on the dashboard) that allowed the car to lower it’s height by 5 cm. Then the customer also had the option to install a single Holley / Weber carburettor or even triple Weber carburettors. This new car was called Renault Torino Lutteral Comahue ST whose top variant would easily do 230 km/hr.
