F1-Inspired Renault Clio R.S. 18 Arrives With A Mean Stance

Renaultsport customers with a passion for motorsport now have a limited edition Clio RS that they’ll soon be able to order in select markets.

Named after the Renaultsport F1 Team’s 2018 challenger, the Clio R.S. 18 sports the black and yellow livery of the F1 cars, and gets grey decals, special badging on the front doors, black Renault and R.S. logos, and a deep black finish for the rear diffuser.

Open the door of the new Renault Clio R.S. 18 and you will be greeted by several updates, such as the numbered R.S.-branded door sill, Alcantara and leather trimmed steering wheel, carbon fiber-effect air vent surrounds, and special Renaultsport carpet mats.

Building upon the Clio RS 220 EDC Trophy, the limited edition model benefits from the same 220PS (217hp) and 280Nm (207lb-ft) of torque 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, that works together with an EDC dual-clutch transmission.

However, it also has additional technical updates such as the front dampers with hydraulic compression stops, sharper and more direct steering, and an Akrapovic exhaust for a deeper sound.
