Renault launches new Clio Renaultsport 182 Cup

The Renault Clio Renaultsport 182 Cup and V6 255 will make their debut at the Paris Motors Show this week in advance of its 2005 on-sale date.

Priced at £13,800, the new Renaultsport 182 Cup will have both manual air conditioning and ABS as standard. Manual air conditioning replaces the standard automatic climate control. In addition, unlike the Clio Renaultsport 172, ABS, electronic stability Programme (ESP) and cruise control and speed limiter are all fitted as standard on the new 182.

The Clio Renaultsport 182 Cup is 20 kg lighter than the existing Clio Renaultsport 182 helping the Cup version achieve a 0-62mph time of 6.9 seconds (compared to 7.1 seconds for the 182). As with the Clio Renaultsport 182, the Cup 182's 2.0 16v engine develops 182bhp at 6,500 rpm.

Lateral airbags, xenon headlamps, headlamp wash, automatic headlamps, automatic wipers and heat reflecting windscreen are amongst the features that have been removed. Some trim detailing has also been removed.
