A spin-off from the ‘Clio Trophy’ race series and first previewed at the Paris Motor Show in 1998, the Clio V6 230 was in many ways the spiritual successor to the mid-engined 5-Turbo. Launched in 2001, the wide-hipped, mid-engine ‘junior supercar' was broadly based on the Clio Mk II but the V6 variant actually shared very little with its standard counterpart. Where the rear seats would normally be, nestled a tweaked version of the proven and unstressed 3.0-litre, 24v, V6 unit from the Laguna saloon offering access to 227bhp (230PS) fed to the rear wheels and enabling 0-60 in 6.2 seconds and 146mph, not for the faint-hearted in such a diminutive ‘rocket ship’. The Phase 1 cars were assembled by hand at the Tom Walkinshaw Racing (TWR) workshops in Uddevalla in Sweden, using parts shipped from France.

Based on the Phase 1 engine, further developed with the help of Porsche Engineering, the 255bhp Phase 2 Clio V6 was the most powerful series-production hot hatchback in the world at the time of its launch in 2003. The second generation car had gained a bit of weight with the addition of a few creature comforts, however, the additional horsepower regained the status quo. Better equipped it may have been, but a practical family car it is not with little luggage space and a howling V6 about half a metre behind your right ear.The Phase 2 cars were built by the Renault Sport division and limited to 500 examples.

This stunning, left-hand drive, Phase 2 is attractively finished in Illiad Blue Metallic with contrasting dark grey leather upholstery and a smart set of OZ 18-inch alloys. Showing only 21,206km, this looks like a collector-quality example worthy of serious consideration.
