Renault Clio (1) General Information

When the Clio was launched to replace the R5, it was obvious its philosophy was perfect for privateer and amateur drivers. Read in the Clio groupA file to find more about the philosophy of R5 and Clio. In groupN the car became a huge success especially on national asphalt rallies. But as well on gravel the Clio proved it had outstanding handling and bullet proof reliability, perfect for privateers. In fact, the little, cheap groupN Clio was so outstanding in this aspect, it managed to finish 6th overall in the brutal Bandama Rallye 1991! - Yes, this result with a basically road version compact car on a djungle adventure!

And like with the groupA, a kit was available for the group N Clio. Already the 1783cc Clio 16s was competitive in N3, but when it was decided a 1998cc Clio Williams version was more convenient for N3, customers could buy a kit to convert their Clio 16s to a Williams!
