    Renault return


    Isn't it great to see Renault coming back to oz I've just been to the motor show to drool over the Cleo, 2 litre 16 valve 124 kilowatts, 0-100 Km/h in 7.2 seconds
    wait till the boys start hotting it up, look out WRX. Its like a modern Gordini, can't wait to get a drive.

    It should be great to see a few Clio's burning up the Aussie tarmac..

    The range is supposed to be small though, any idea if the V6 Clio will make it down under?

    Initially it will be the Renaultsport Clio in May followed by the cheaper Clios toward the end of 2001. The Clio V6 is unlikely to be making its way here because of the cost (about $70K), but at the launch they mentioned if anybody was interested in placing a firm order........

    But seeing that the production V6 seems to have been softened over the pre-production car (from reading the various OS tests)to the point where the RS Clio 172 is fractions of seconds behind in acceleration, is it worth the extra expense? Although the V6 is much more visually imposing than the normal RS Clio, no don't say buy a V6 body kit, that really isn't the point!

    You will find the comments interesting on a discussion about the "Clio" posted way back with the title "Clios, are there any down under?" posted way back on January 17 !!

    Well guys, did anyone read the Melbourne Herald Sun last Friday, I quote, Priced at $30,990, the Cleo sport will be followed by more sedate 1.4 litre and 1.6 litre versions in September and the awesome race-bred mid-engined V6 version early next year. Unquote.
    And we've never known a newspaper to lie have we now.
