The CR760 was first presented as the C 715 by Marcel Riffard in 1937, originally intended to be powered by a new Renault 16 cylinder air cooled engine that was being developed. Because the new Renault was not available yet at the time the design team decided to replace it for a similar engine from Isotta-Fraschini.
The fuselage of the CR760 was formed as a welded steel tube, with a two spar wooden wing with stressed plywood skinning. The first test flight was made early in May 1940, but the prototype had to be destroyed in June of the same year to prevent the Germans to get hold of it.
