In the mid-fifties the Renault range consisted of two models: the small 4CV and the largest and most elegant Frégate. It was a rather small range, with an empty space to be filled.
For this reason, Renault started a project for the production of a niche car that inspired cheerfulness, carefree, desire for holidays and leisure, a car that combined the economy of use with the elegance of a cabriolet, with commercial outlet also in the US.
In 1959 the huge success of Dauphine caused the main factory, where it was produced, to be fully exploited to support the strong demand, so the production of Floride had to be diverted to two external companies. In the middle of the same year, after a series of disputes between the designers and the bodyworker of the model (external to Renault), series production was finally started.
The Floride was proposed from the outset both as a 2-seater spyder and as a coupé, later in 1960 the spyder left place to the 2 + 2 convertible.
His line took up the typical features of sports cars of the time, with a fine fusion of European and American style.
A great push for the image of the Floride, both the one destined for Europe and the one destined in the States (renamed "Caravelle"), came from the famous French actress Brigitte Bardot, who became its advertising testimonial and even she wanted one as a personal car. It had a notable success in its market segment, although in the US after the first years it suffered a substantial drop due to the too small engine for the American driving style.
