According to the latest rumors, Renault is about to announce an “extreme” version of its Clio R, S, which is expected to exceed 250 horsepower.
The French manufacturer would benefit the Monaco Grand Prix, which will begin on May 26 to make his announcement. According to these rumors, this Clio R.S. could embark on four-cylinder 2.0l Mégane R.S. 275.
The first images that were broadcast on the internet allow you to give a good idea of what this will look like new sports.
Anyway, we are on track to have issued “hardcore” of the city to the diamond with a power of 250 hp turning around or a little more. Suffice to say that it should be the most powerful sports urban B-segment, ahead of Ford Fiesta ST and Peugeot 208 GTI.
This new Clio RS would probably be presented as a concept car for a possible serial passage. With 250 hp it would place itself in direct competition with the upper class or include the Peugeot 308 GTI.
The assumptions mentioned say that in addition to other engine improvements will be made to the RS compared to marketed now as aerodynamics has been reviewed and extended wheel arches.
