Renault Clio (3) General Information

Renault shows extreme cleverness and commitment with this car. It is also nice that Renault Sport made available some data to us to compare how an R3 class car is changed from the road version. Renault is clever because of the 3rd generation Clio they created a road version "Clio Sport", which compared to all other Clio versions has a wider body kit and a 10mm increased wheelbase standard! This is important, because in the budget R3 class there is strictly no altering body work, wheelbase, etc..

Also the comparison is interesting to show what technically the new R classes are all about. Engine configuration must also stay the same, no blueprints (slightly bigger bore x stroke and excusing it with series tolerances) allowed. The Clio in the R3 variation of groupA is about 40BHP up on the road car, it features full groupA brakes, adjustable dampers, a ZF limited slip differential and a Sadev 6-speed sequential gearbox that is operated through a dashbord joystick. Other than that (except safety equipment of course) the car is standard!

Renault Sport also made data available to French print magazines "Rallyes" and "Echappement" for a very different, but maybe even more mindblowing comparison. Renault promises to its customers that the Clio R3 is very similar in performance to the Clio S1600 - and observing the French rally championship 2007 this is even an understatement. In the magazine comparison (well, and here in our database data files of course) you find that the 2000cc Clio R3 is actually 10BHP up on the Clio S1600 with 230BHP vs 220BHP (and over time the R3 Clio was developed up to 247BHP). Though the Clio R3 is actually quite heavy for a FWD groupA based car. But of course the Clio S1600 is a no shortcuts, all freedom kit car. Renault gave info to the magazines that they sell a Clio R3 for €75,000, while a Clio S1600 Kit car all built up and ready to rally at the moment has a market price of €180,000, so you can buy 2.5 Clio R3 for the price of 1 S1600 car! The customers appear to appreciate this. At the time this material went to press, February 2007, Renault Sport had orders for 55 Clio R3, that is more than twice as many rallye cars as they sold of the Clio S1600 since it was launched 6 years ago!
