RENAULT WILL UNVEIL this new hardcore F1-inspired Clio RS at the Monaco GP.
Due to images leaking online, Renaultsport has now released this official image of the new super-hot Clio; a car which, so far, hasn’t quite lived up to its predecessors, losing its small hot-hatch crown to the Ford Fiesta ST.
Official details are scarce but rumour mill has kicked into overdrive and the ‘facts’ circulating online state that it could be named Clio R.S.16, in deference to Renaultsport’s latest F1 car, and might be powered either by a 250bhp version of the existing 1.6-litre turbo or even the 270bhp 2.0-litre turbo from the Megane RS.
What we can tell you, not that we need to, is that it features more aggressively flared arches, bigger bumpers and sills and a whopping great spoiler on the bootlid. Regardless of how it drives, it certainly looks the part!
More details will be released on Friday 27th May at the Monaco Grand Prix.
