Lot # 122 (Sale Order: 22 of 168)

When Renault launched the V6 Sport Clio in 2001 it was broadly based on the Renault Clio Mk II however the V6 variant actually shares very little with its standard counterpart The 30Litre V6 engine was taken from the Renault Laguna and tuned to 227bhp before being placed into the middle of the Clio replacing the rear seats and turning this car into a very hot hatch  Capable of accelerating from 060 in just 62 seconds with a top speed of 146mph the Clio V6 Sport was in many ways the spiritual successor to the wild rally based midengine Renault Five Turbo of the 1980s The Clio Mk II had to be extensively reworked structurally to accommodate the transition transforming the car from a frontengine front wheel drive car to a midengine rear wheel drive machine This is certainly not a car for the faint hearted built in limited numbers and mainly driven by only the true enthusiasts of the dayThis Renault Clio V6 offered in silver with blue Alcantara interior sports seats is a true example of a modern classic In great condition with ten service stamps the most recent in May 2016 at 59800 miles this car has been well maintained whilst recently wrapped up in cotton wool by previous owners appreciating the rising values of such cars A tracker has been installed and all handbooks including the original service booklet are present and correct alongside an MoT test certificate valid until November 2017 With honest examples becoming hard to source this particular car looks to be very good value indeed
