RENAULTSPORT CLIO V6 255
SOLD / SIMILAR REQUIRED. We are looking to purchase another low mileage Renaultsport Clio V5 255.
It gives us great pleasure to offer for sale an exceptional, original and very low mileage example of the incredible Renaultsport Clio V6 255. First registered in October 2003, #066 is a beautiful Illiad Blue car which has resided in the same family for the last 13 years, covering a mere 2,500 miles from new and having always been dry stored. The car has just returned to us from SG Motorsport where it received a major service and cambelt change.
With only 2,822 V6 cars ever produced globally (1513 units Phase I and 1309 units Phase II) between 2001-2005; it is unlikely we ever see a mid-engined, rear wheel drive hot hatchback produced again. The naturally aspirated 3 litre V6 is also a dying breed with most modern day performance hatches favouring 1.4-2litre turbocharged configurations.
The styling is a huge part of this cars character. With its wide arches, low stance and large side air intakes all taken directly from the Clio V6 Trophy car which preceded it; it creates a truly imposing road presence.
You don’t appreciate what an incredible driver’s car the V6 is until you get it onto a B-road. The ride is firm yet pliable and the steering is refreshingly analogue versus modern day exotica but still very communicative and responsive. Then you step on the throttle and hear the remarkably smooth sound of the 3 litre V6 coming to life in an extremely linear way. Gear changes are seamless through the 6 speed manual with great torque at the lower end of the rev range.
As an investment; original, very low mileage and unmodified cars are nearly impossible to source with the majority now sitting in collections and unlikely to come to market in the near future. Our example therefore represents one of the last opportunities to purchase a modern day automotive unicorn.
