Renault says new Clio RS 18 has "motorsport breeding"

Renault says new Clio RS 18 has

Continuing inside, the Clio R.S. 18 features Alcantara and leather trimmed steering wheel, carbon fiber-effect air vent surrounds, and special Renaultsport floor mats. The colour scheme is an inverted take on Renault's current Formula One livery, which is painted in a yellow base with black outlines.

Last year, Renault celebrated 40 years of Formula 1 participation and had been doing weird projects ever since, like that F1-themed teapot.

Are you disappointed that the Renault Clio R.S.18 won't be coming to the UK? Its sporting credentials are expressed by a number of design flourishes drawn directly from the world of Formula 1.

Renault Sport has unveiled its latest limited-edition model - inspired by the brand's Formula One auto for the upcoming season.

Yellow accents are then added to the front splitter, the door trim, and wheel caps. The rear badging, front bumper, Renault diamond and R.S. logo on the bumper are entirely black, a touch that is exclusive to this vehicle.

On the inside, the premium feel of this limited-edition version is evident from the outset. As in the standard vehicle, there's a torque boost feature helping the auto reach a peak torque figure of 280Nm but the exhaust note has been enhanced on the R.S.18 thanks to an exhaust system from specialists Akrapovic.

The chassis has been stiffened and lowered to allow for a more vibrant drive, with the front damping setup incorporating compression stops for a sharper and more direct turn-in. The Renault Clio R.S. 18 is equipped as standard [] with an Akrapovic exhaust, ensuring a powerful engine sound and dynamic pick-up.

It will be launched for European customers in the first half of 2018, with pricing to be announced at a later date.
