Renault Sport Clio concept with Megane RS275 Trophy R power

FRENCH hot hatch fans can drool over Renault Sport's concept Clio R.S. 16, revealed at last month's Monaco Grand Prix, which if produced would instantly top the already crammed performance Clio line-up.

The Frenchies have shoe-horned the Megane RS275 Trophy R's beastly 201kW/360Nm 2.0-litre donk into a Clio's engine bay, borrowed its manual six-speed transmission and adjustable suspension too, and widened the body 60mm to sit on top of 19-inch wheels.

It is named and colour matched after Renault's current R.S. 16 F1 car, and by all accounts looks production ready. 

Nothing confirmed though, and this is still just a concept, but Renault loves a Clio special edition and we Aussies are a massive market for Renault Sport goodies. Go on, just build it.
