To coincide with the World Series by Renault meeting at France’s Magny-Cours racetrack which took place the last weekend, Renault Sport Technologies presented the “World Series by Renault” Clio Renault Sport, a unique celebration of this increasingly popular top-class motor sports event. This exceptional car emphasizes pure performance and motoring passion, combining highly distinctive looks with true sports performance, largely thanks to a new gearbox staging, which will be appearing across the Clio Renault Sport range from October. In France, the “World Series by Renault” Clio Renault Sport is priced at €21,900. Order books open across the Renault dealer network in week 39 for the UK and in week 43 for France, Spain and Italy.


World Series by Renault

Under a motor sports concept unique in Europe, World Series by Renault events have drawn a total audience of 1,500,000 since the first meeting was held in 2005. The events combine a quality sports programme with other features appealing to a broader public than motor sports fans alone. To coincide with the World Series by Renault event at the Magny-Cours racetrack which took place the last weekend, Renault Sport Technologies presented the “World Series by Renault” Clio Renault Sport. This signature edition features a highly distinctive appearance, with black satin-finish wheels, dark anthracite hubcaps, and special “World Series By Renault” décor.

High performance with new gearbox staging

The “World Series by Renault” Clio Renault Sport makes the very most of the expressive personality of the 16-valve 2-litre normally aspirated engine, which is both supple (peak torque of 215 Nm at 5500 rpm) and powerful (200 hp [145kW] at 7250 rpm). The engine is coupled through a TL4 six-speed manual gearbox developed under the Renault-Nissan Alliance. On the fifth and sixth gears, the staging has been extended to improve vehicle acoustics, under motorway driving conditions in particular. The car reaches a top speed of 223 km/h. This gearbox adaptation will be carried across to all Clio Renault Sport versions from October.

An exceptionally technical yet affordable car

Like all models in the Clio Renault Sport range, this new signature edition features sophisticated aerodynamics, with extractors on the front wings and a rear diffuser derived from Formula One practice. Cup chassis and Recaro bucket seats are available on option. The “World Series By Renault” Clio Renault Sport is available in a choice of three opaque colours (glacier white, dynamo blue, toro red) and two metal colours (profond black, monako blue). In France, the car is priced at €21,900. Order books open across the Renault dealer network in October (week 39 for the UK and in week 43 for France, Spain and Italy).
