The French based automaker Renault has announced its plans to introduce a new version of the current Clio RS, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, which might be the Gordini.
Renault has big plans for its future lineup and part of these plans is the revival of the Gordini moniker, which is believed to truly take place next month, in Geneva, when a new version of the Clio RS will be officially unveiled. The model in question is believed to be named the Clio RS Gordini, or even the Clio Gordini, and it should receive some carbon fiber inserts, the Blue Gordini exterior paint with white stripes, Recaro seats, alloy pedals, R-Link with RS Monitor and much more.
As far as the engine goes, the model in question is said to be powered by a 1.6 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which will produce 30 HP (22 kW) and 51 Nm (33 lb-ft) more than the standard Clio RS, to a total of 230 HP (169 kW) and 285 Nm (210 lb-ft) of torque. The Clio Gordini will also loose 25 kg (55 lbs) and will be lowered by 10 mm for the Cup chassis version. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint will take 5.9 seconds and top speed will be limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
