The car has two occupants who seem to be dressed as though it is not really a desert but like the snow is in the forecast. The words across the ad call this a "blue-sky idea" and the text describes this as a three-part idea. The first point is to design a sporty-looking car" with a price-tag of $2295, the second point is that you could buy it either as you see it in the ad, (a hardtop), or choose a convertible and the third point is to call your nearest Rlenault dealer for a trial drive.

There is a picture of a Light-Colored 4-Door Dauphine being driven by a smiling lady on a dirt-covered country road over the headline announcing that "This is the winner of the Main Street-Cedar Avenue-Petunia Lane Economy Run". The text begins by giving mileage figures in distances that a housewife will understand and explains how they have been making improvements in this engine since 1956. It then talks about the automation and precise machining used in the European factories used by Renault and ends talking about the different models available and the over 500 Renault dealers that will be able to service your car. The text claims that many of the visitors to their automated plants "live (and work) in Detroit" and that Sherlock Holmes was a novice compared to the inspectors used by Renault in their manufacturing process.

Those words comprise the top 40% of the ad and most of the rest of the ad is writing except for a picture of a Renault 10 in the bottom right side of the ad. The words in the ad display some sorrow that they have not created as good of a car as they could. They now use a thicker steel, more paint and rust proofing and they use 25% more line inspectors. Then they went to work on the dealers. They felt that any dealership should just use genuine Renault mechanics and that every part was available for it. They had the Renault 8 cars but they now have the Renault10. It is very comfortable, has many engine improvements and only costs $1647.
