Renaultsport has started work on a more extreme version of the Clio 197 for the UK market.
“We have demand for a number of different versions of the Clio 197,” says the company’s new commercial boss, Philippe Talou-Derible. “French buyers would like a more luxurious version. The UK appears to have demand for a more extreme one. We are working on solutions to this.”
There’s no word yet on how the Clio will be beefed up, but lightening, suspension tweaks and more power are all under consideration. The latter option is the least likely, though.Don’t expect much sign of the more radical Clio 197 before the end of 2007.
