2012 Renault Clio Renaultsport 200 Raider - Web Exclusive

Renault UK has announced the Clio Renaultsport 200 Raider, a limited edition version of the award-winning Clio hot hatch.

With a wealth of extra equipment over the standard Renaultsport version on which it is based, this limited run of 50 cars for UK customers offers exclusivity and style.

A first for Renault, Raider is finished in matte Renault id paintwork. The choice of matte Stealth Grey or Diavolo Red is contrasted by a gloss black finish to the roof, rear spoiler, F1-style front blade, rear diffuser and mirrors.

The gloss black finish is also applied to the 18" 'Interlagos' wheels, one inch larger diameter than the standard 200 wheels. These are fitted with Bridgestone RE 050A tires, as used on the record-breaking Megane Renaultsport 265 Trophy, which set a lap record at the Nurburgring.

Naturally, the acclaimed Cup chassis is standard with a lower ride height, stiffer springs and dampers, quicker steering ratio and red finish to the Brembo calipers.

The exterior is rounded off by darker tinted rear-side and tailgate windows plus a Raider badge.

A warm interior welcomes the driver with leather upholstered Recaros complimented by zinc grey finish on the center console and dashboard inserts. Contrasting with this is a white rev counter.

Bluetooth, USB connectivity, automatic climate control and Renaultsport carpet mats are also fitted. A numbered plate identifies the number in the 50 production run.

Customers can order their Raider with a no cost choice of either Renaultsport Monitor - an on-board telemetry system - or Carminat TomTom Live satellite navigation.
