Rocco Motto had a close relationship with racing driver and Renault dealer, Louis Rosier. "Ecurie Rosier" was originally set up to run Rosier's Talbot-Lago T26 and later evolved to an actual team running Maseratis 250F and finally Ferrari 500s simultaneously for Rosier and another driver.
Rosier's Renault dealership in Clermont-Ferrand was one of the largest Renault dealerships in France. Together with Rocco Motto, Rosier himself designed several Renault specials which received lightweight bodies by Motto.
Pictured here is a Renault 4CV Rosier special.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
