Renault Australia has come up with a video of RBR driver Mark Webber taking the Renault Clio RS 200 out for a spin at Sandown Raceway in Melbourne ahead of the just-concluded Australian GP.

The hot hatch wears a new 1.6 litre turbocharged mill that features DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) cam followers developed from F1, as well as direct injection and VVT, with 200 hp at 6,000 rpm and 240 Nm (up 25 Nm from Clio III RS) from just 1,750 to 5,600 rpm for numbers.

No more stick-shifter with the Clio RS 200 – the lump is mated exclusively to Renault’s EDC (Efficient Double Clutch) dual clutch, six-speed transmission, described as docile in daily driving and particularly effective in sporty driving.

The Renault Clio RS 200 is set to debut in Australia soon, and it should pop up here in due time.
