True to form, Renault has come up with a limited edition car celebrating an F1 win. While there’s no more Renault F1 Team to promote, Renault is still a major engine supplier in Formula 1, powering the cars of Lotus, Williams, Caterham and champions Red Bull Racing. This hot Clio celebrates the latter’s 2011 Constructors’ title win. Expect to see Twingo and Megane equivalents soon.
The Renault Clio R.S. Red Bull Racing RB7 is based on the Clio RS 200 Cup that was recently launched here. Highlights include 18-inch black Interlagos wheels with Bridgestone RE050A tyres, Profond Black body colour and Sirius Yellow on the F1-style blade, door mirror housings and diffuser. There are also Renault Sport chequered-pattern roof decals and Red Bull Racing badging on the doors.
Inside, the RB7 gets a personalised numbered plaque and a Renault Sport-badged gear lever knob. Other things are all identical to the Clio RS sold by TC Euro Cars. Automatic climate control, automatic headlights, key card/push start, yellow Recaros, and R.S. Monitor are all standard.
This car will be will marketed in five countries only, and they are France, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium and Austria. So you can’t have it here, but our Clio RS is also a limited edition model from the “Ange & Démon” series. Click here for our launch report.
