Renault Clio RS 18 Adds F1 Theme for Special Edition

Renault unveils limited-edition Clio R.S.18

Renault has just revealed the meanest looking Clio you can now buy: the Clio RS 18 limited series model. The colour scheme is an inverted take on Renault's current Formula One livery, which is painted in a yellow base with black outlines.

The R.S.18 is based on the current Clio R.S. 220 EDC Trophy, which is available in the United Kingdom for £22,995.

Last year, Renault celebrated 40 years of Formula 1 participation and had been doing weird projects ever since, like that F1-themed teapot. Renault hasn't stated exactly how many will be built, only saying that the Clio R.S.18 will be built in limited numbers for the European market and go on sale in the first half of 2018. Its sporting credentials are expressed by a number of design flourishes drawn directly from the world of Formula 1.

Quentin Audiffren, Clio R.S. product manager at Renault Sport Cars, said: "Renault Sport customers share our passion for motorsport".

New signing Konstantinos Mavropanos in Arsenal training
Mavropanos is a centre-back although it is unclear at this stage whether he will be considered for first team selection. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is impressed with his clubs new defender Konstantinos Mavropanos .

The main changes to the R.S. 220 are the exterior design features, such as the yellow front blade, side detailing and bolt caps, which contrasts against the all-black detailing on the rest of the vehicle. The diffuser's Deep Black finish adds to the car's forceful stance.

A combination of Alcantara and leather has been upholstered inside amid carbon fibre air vents and R.S. branding on the doorsills and steering wheel.

Needless to say, the Renault Clio R.S.18 has inherited the Renault Clio R.S. 220 EDC Trophy's punch thanks to its 220-horsepower engine which features a torque boost function for peak torque of 280Nm. Meanwhile, its Trophy chassis has been lowered and stiffened, its front dampers incorporate hydraulic compression stops and its steering is even sharper and more direct. It also comes with a custom Akrapovic exhaust system as standard.
