The Renault Clio R. S. 16 Concept has been revealed officially. Speculation more optimistic, they are a reality, and finally equips the unit 2.0 TCe 275 HP that I mentioned last week when we discovered him for the first time. In addition comes dressed for the occasion with a body kit-specific color yellow/black.
With this prototype, Renault Sport celebrates its 40th anniversary and its return to the Formula 1. What better way to do that than by creating a sports that it was time that we had a desire to know: a Renault Clio R. S., but the expectations have gone far beyond already that the most radical of the utility uses the same mechanics the engine, transmission and cooling system of the Renault Megane R. S. 275 Trophy-R. A beast that has been crowned the Nürburgring on numerous occasions.
Thus, this Renault Clio R. S. 16 Concept produces nothing less than 275 HP and 360 Nm of maximum torque. Obviously the suspension has also been revised to be balanced with respect to the new power of the vehicle and has installed a new dual exhaust system signed by Akrapovik that guarantees a sound that will leave you breathless.
For the engineers of Renault Sport to introduce all these improvements in the small of the home has not been an easy task but the challenge was finally overcome. The body shows a color scheme that combines the yellow as main tone with the black contrast. The dark tone you will find it on the front grilles, 19-inch alloy wheels, housings of the exterior mirrors, defenses, sides, roof and inside area of the large rear wing. The vehicle has been specially decorated to make reference to the cars of the F1 team, Renalt Sport.
Sure you have noticed that it has a few extended steps of wheels that have widened the body nothing less than 60 mm, in addition to the decorations in gold that make this vehicle more special if it is. For the optics front has used the LED technology, but our eyes quickly diverted to the attractive LED lights pattern checkerboard in the area of the antinieblas that give a signature of the light to a very personal and sports.
