Renault strikes gold with the New Clio Renaultsport 200 Turbo

The new Clio 4 is a big deal for Renault, it’s the mainstay of the range and the model which will fuel the car maker’s growth into new sectors, including their all-important electric vehicle Z.E. range, currently defined by the Twizy, Zoe and Fluence.

But before we get too sensible, let’s not forget that the Clio Renaultsport models are usually also the most fun cars to drive, so it’s good to see Renault using the new Renaultsport 200 Turbo as the flag-bearer for the new larger, but lighter Clio.

Limited-edition Clio Renaultsport 200 Raider available shortly

It’s called the Clio Renaultsport 200 Raider and just 50 are coming to the UK replete with matt Renault i.d. paintwork and a choice of just two colours – Stealth Grey or Diavolo Red.

This is essentially a makeover, rather than an upgrade – the only exception being the 18” ‘Interlagos’ alloy wheels, which are one inch larger diameter than the standard 200 wheels.
