Renault unveils special edition Clio Renaultsport

Renaultsport unveiled a special edition version of the Clio Reanultsport Trophy - the Clio Renaultsport 220 Trophy EDC  at the Geneva Motor Show.

Following the success of its Trophy model range  the 2005 Clio Renaultsport 182 Trophy, the Mégane Renaultsport 265 Trophy and the current Mégane Renaultsport 275 Trophy - the new Clio Renaultsport 220 Trophy has been finely tuned by Renaultsport's engineers to add even sharper handling, improved driving characteristics and increased performance.

Offering a number of enhancements including increased power and torque output, Stop & Start technology and reduced CO2emissions, the special edition is due to go on sale this summer.

Thanks to revised engine mapping, the 220 Trophy now has 10 per cent more power (pushed to 220bhp) and up to an extra 40Nm of torque. It also benefits from a larger turbo, an air intake designed to minimise pressure losses and a revised exhaust system to accommodate the latest Euro6 catalytic converter.

A refined EDC transmission, quicker steering, a lower and stiffer chassis and upgraded tyres will make Renault's hot hatch even hotter than ever before.
