To celebrate its fortieth anniversary, Renault Sport is proud to unveil the concept car, Clio RS16. In under five months, teams from Renault Sport have worked to bring to life a somewhat crazy idea, which involved putting a 275bhp, 2.0-litre turbo engine developing 360Nm of torque under the bonnet of a Clio R.S.

To fully exploit the potential of this powerful engine, derived from M├ęgane R.S. 275 Trophy-R, Clio RS16 comes with chassis and suspension systems featuring solutions developed for racing. Boasting 19-inch wheels and a 60mm wider bodywork, its aggressive design only serves to confirm its purpose: become Renault Sport's most powerful road car.

Sharing its name and colour scheme with the RS16 single-seater, Clio RS16 celebrates Renault's return as a Formula 1 constructor. On Friday, 27 May 2016, Renault Sport Formula One Team driver Kevin Magnussen treated fans and onlookers to the first public outing of Clio RS16 at the legendary Monaco Grand Prix.
