René Alexandre Arnoux (Grenoble, 4 July 1948) is a French former racing driver.
He was active from the second half of sixties to eighties. He competed in Formula 2, where he won in 1977, and in Formula 1, where he drove for Scuderia Renault and Scuderia Ferrari. He participated in 164 Grands Prix winning seven of them, achieving 22 podium finishes and 18 pole position.
- 1988 was for the talented French driver Réné Arnoux a year to forget: his single-seater, which was fitted with this PERSONAL steering wheel in our collection, was badly designed by the Ligier team constructor, Michel Tetu, who placed the tank at the base of the engine, thus limiting the car’s performance, which led to numerous retirements and the driver finishing the season empty handed.
