New Car: 2012 Renaultsport Clio 200 Raider

This is the Renaultsport Clio 200 Raider, a limited edition of Renault's supermini hot hatch, which gets lots of extra equipment over the standard Renaultsport Clio with just 50 models produced for the UK.

The Raider is finished in matt paintwork, with buyers getting a choice of Stealth Grey or Diavolo Red. This is contrasted by a gloss black finish to the roof, rear spoiler, F1-style front splitter, rear diffuser and door mirrors. Renault has also applied a gloss black finish to the Raider's 18-inch ‘Interlagos’ alloy wheels, which get Bridgestone RE 050A tyres, as used on the record-breaking Megane Renaultsport 265 Trophy.

The Raider uses the sporty Cup chassis from the standard Renaultsport Clio, which features a lower ride height, stiffer springs and dampers, a quicker steering rack and red finish to the Brembo brake callipers. The exterior finish is rounded off by extra-tinted rear side and tailgate windows and a Raider badge.

Inside, there are leather Recaro seats and a white rev counter on the dashboard. Standard equipment includes Bluetooth, a USB port for iPods, automatic climate control and Renaultsport carpet mats. The interior is finished off by a plate identiying the number in the 50 production run.

In addition, customers can choose either the Renaultsport Monitor – Renaultsport’s on-board telemetry system – or Carminat TomTom Live satellite navigation as a no cost option.

No changes have been made under the bonnet as the Renaultsport Clio 200 Raider uses the same 200bhp 2.0-litre engine as the standard car. The car will be available to order from the end of October and is expected to cost around £19,000.

The Raider revives a badge used on a special editon 5 GT Turbo back in 1990, which was available with metallic blue paintwork, unique wheels and an upgraded interior. For more details click here.
