No, one 4L+another 4L = one 8L. They were quite popular for many years for "people with more brains than money"

I think it's a beauty, did you make it for the club?

When I was just learning to drive we had a Renault 4 (down in South America). It was a fun car to drive, but the gear shift was really strange. Back to the topic, I always had a soft spot for the 2CV (perhaps a result of being dropped on my head as a baby or something ).
