Enjoy Illinois Route 66

Illinois were on Regent Street as presenting partner to the Regent Street Motor Show, promoting holidays to the State and raising the profile of Route 66 by showcasing iconic elements of the Route and giving away maps and destination guides to Show visitors.

Much of the Illinois leg of the Mother Road is frozen in time, a 300-mile neon-lit drive through a past filled with motor inns, quirky restaurants and diners, and museums with amazing memorabilia. For starters, check out the 30-foot tall smiling spaceman called the Gemini Giant next to the soon-to-be renovated Launching Pad diner in Wilmington, the large Route 66 Shield Mural on the back wall of the Route 66 Hall of Fame and Museum in Pontiac, and the curious attraction of Henry’s Rabbit Ranch for equal parts entertainment, visitor centre and rabbit ranch.


Renault was delighted to be exhibiting at the Regent Street Motor Show once again in 2017.

Renault has been producing cars since 1898 and the Renault Group today is an international multi-brand group, selling more than 2.5 million vehicles in 128 countries. With 12 world championship titles in 36 years, Renault’s expertise in Formula 1 is equally remarkable.

Renault offers a fantastic range of vehicles: household favourites such as Clio and Mégane, ground breakers such as the Scénic and the new crossover, Captur, along with its bigger sibling, the Kadjar. Added to this is a range of versatile, hardworking and efficient vans.

Concern for the environment is paramount and one of its main goals is the continuous reduction of CO2 emissions. Renault has a complete range of affordable, all-electric vehicles, including Twizy and ZOE, both models were on display, with Twizy available for test drive.
