This is nice and I always wanted one back in the day.  :)

I'm a big fan of these. I think they're the ones that had a switch on the dash marked "Extra" or similar in case the owner wanted to wire in soemthing extra of their own choosing at a later time. Brilliant, but also bonkers  ;D

In terms of self-driving and lectrickery, that might not be everyone's cup of tea .. but that is quite the project! Hats off to the students (I assume) at Stanford.

it is French. And it was supposed to be a V8, which explains the vee angle and complex ignition system. Despite all that, I'd still take one over an Essex.

Was it not based on the Maserati lump used in the SM etc?

Regardless, at least Renault had the decency to slap a turbo on it 8)
