The Car ...
A spin-off from the Clio Trophy race car series and first
previewed at the Paris Motor Show in 1998, the Clio V6 230 Mk 1 finally
hit the streets in 2001. Mid-engined and rear-wheel drive with a 3.0 litre
V6 engine where the rear seats would normally be, the Clio V6 gives the
driver supercar characteristics in a "pocket sized" package. In
2003 the Clio V6 255 Mk 2 was released with more power, improved suspension
and updated looks. The last Clio V6 rolled out of the Renaultsport factory
in late 2005.
All Clio V6s were hand assembled. The Clio V6 Mk1s were assembled at the
Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) workshops in Uddevalla in Sweden, using parts
shipped from France. For the Clio V6 Mk2 production was returned to the
Vee's spiritual home at the ex-Alpine Renaultsport Dieppe factory. To recognize
the relative rarity of Clio V6s, each car is numbered with a plaque on the
centre console behind the handbrake.
The Clio V6 is approaching cult status as production of these rare and
beautiful cars has now ceased. The long-term reviews in Evo magazine were
enthusiastic for both the Mark 1 and Mark 2 versions, and Top Gear's Jeremy
Clarkson commented "In my perfect ten car garage I would definitely
have one of these – no question".
