The Clenet Coachworks Family

This site is currently a springboard for information about the wonderful, limited edition automobiles built in the late 70's and early 80's by Clenet Coachworks of Santa Barbara, CA. There has been a recent strong interest in these vehicles most probably due to the fact that they are becoming "classic neo-classics" as they all approach 30 years of age. We are probably a bit biased, but we think they are the most elegant automobiles ever produced.

We are a VERY informal group of Clenet enthusiasts who share maintenance tips, ownership experiences, historical memorabilia and try to host at least one major Clenet event per year. Many former Clenet Coachworks employees, including Alain Clenet himself, are active in our group. If you have a Clenet, please visit the appropriate registry, or you can simply contact us.
