Renault South Africa will introduce a limited edition Clio RS in South Africa in the second quarter of 2018. Meet the Clio RS 18!
The Renault Clio RS 18 is named after the 2018 RenaultSport F1 team and is based on the Clio RS 220 Trophy EDC. It employs the same 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 162 kW and 280 Nm of torque which powers the front wheels via a 6-speed dual clutch transmission. With a sorted chassis, this Clio RS will dispatch the sprint to 100 kph in about 6.6 seconds before reaching a top speed of 235 kph.
With its F1-inspired styling, the Clio RS 18 combines head-turning looks with respectable performance credentials.
However, the Clio RS 18 sets itself apart with black and yellow livery inspired by Renault’s F1 car. Other details include bespoke badging on the front doors, grey decals, black Renault and RS logos and a rear diffuser finished in black. An Akrapovic exhaust is also fitted which delivers a sportier soundtrack.
On the inside you will notice the numbered RS sill plate, RenaultSport carpets, a leather and Alcantara wrapped steering wheel and air vent surrounds with a carbon fibre look.
It's also worth mentioning that the Clio RS 220 Trophy is a finalist in Fun Car category of the Cars.co.za Consumer Awards — powered by WesBank.
Pricing of the Renault Clio RS 18 has yet to be confirmed but we will keep you informed as soon as further details are announced.
