Renault is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its very first F1 car with a completely unusual object: a special yellow teapot. You may well ask why. Renault made their F1 debut in 1977 with the RS01 which was the very first to use a turbocharged engine. Interestingly, the engine didn’t work very well and the RS01 often had to retire from the race with an engine failure and smoke pouring out of it. This led the team’s boss Ken Tyrrell to call it the “Yellow Teapot.” And so Team Renault are commemorating that auto-teapot with a real, stylish and sleek yellow teapot, which features the same color scheme as the original RS01. Many of its design elements too are a nod to the iconic F1 racecar. The spout is shaped like a F1 car’s nose, with the top resembling a cockpit. Priced at approximately $145, 40 of these teapots will be sold via the brand’s online stores. The teapot will be used at Renault’s restaurant Atelier Renault.
