Description

The second generation of the Renault Clio was a B-segment car which was launched in 1998 and received a facelift in 2001.

In 2004, Renault launched the Clio RS 182 as a replacement for the Clio RS 172. The car was fitted with an improved version of the same 2.0 liter engine (F4R 738) producing 182 hp (134 kW) and 199 Nm of torque. Thanks to the power increase it could accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7,1 seconds while top speed was increased to 222 km/h (138 mph).

Visually, the Clio RS 182 was distinguished by the sporty bodykit that included redesigned front and rear bumpers, new wheels, darker headlights, wider front fenders and centrally located twin exhaust pipes. Inside, it had sport seats upholstered in perforated Alcantara sport seats (optional Recaro).

The more affordable Clio RS 182 Cup featured a more aggressive chassis setup (lowered suspension, stiffer springs, thicker anti roll bars) and was lighter than the stock car thanks to its spartan equipment (no xenon headlights, no climate control, no engine cover, less sound deadening material etc). The limited production Clio 182 Trophy was based on the cup chassis but featured Sachs Remote-Reservoir dampers, Recaro seats, a numbered plaque and Trophy decals.
