Renault celebrates its return to Formula One as a constructor and 40 years of Renault Sport with the unveiling of the Clio R.S. 16 concept. The vehicle comes forth as Renault’s best performing machine, which was driven by Kevin Magnussen of Renault Sport Formula One Team. The Renault Clio R.S.16 concept was built in about five months owing to combined effort from teams involved in motorsport and road cars.

The engine, transmission and the cooling systems have been borrowed from Mégane R.S. 275 Trophy-R which generates a powerful 271bhp and 360Nm of torque. The exhaust system has been tweaked to deliver impressive performance. The front sports LED R.S. VISION chequered-pattern lighting signature which features exclusive multi-faceted reflector technology.

Sporting the Renault Sport’s trademark yellow colour with black detailing and 19-inch wheels, the Clio R.S.16 indeed commands attention on the race track. The car gets twin-outlet Akrapovic exhausts and fog lights which are in shape of Renault Sport's chequered flag logo. Currently doing rounds at the Monaco GP, the car will next be seen at the Paris motor show.
