My RS Clio 197

I have been fortunate enough to have driven a whole range of sports cars from M3 to Ferrari 355 F1 in my life

I have to say my little Clio 197 was one of the best, you feel connected to this little car, due to it’s delivery of speed, ok it’s not as quick as some other cars I’ve driven but the 16v 2.0l loves to be pushed and it sticks to the road far better, lots more fun down our ‘B’ Roads and local country lanes.

The extierer design is one of the best in the hot hatch arnear; with widerned wheel arches, side intakes, F1 rear deffusioner all sitting on 17″ wheels.

I owned the little RS for 2 years and was used as my main car. Unfortunately she had to go last year due to family commitments, I hope in the near future to own another Clio RS

194bhp, 215 Nmn of torque, 199 g/km CO2 emmissions and 0-62 6.9 secs.
