If the Mk1 Volkswagen Golf is the grandfather of hot hatches, then the 2004 Renault Sport Clio V6 is the Olympic champion.

The second version of the Renault Sport Clio V6, their being 1,630 of the previous model, The 2004 Clio V6 benefits from a more sporting specification combining stiffness with progressiveness. The front suspension castor angle has been increased and the larger-diameter anti-roll bar is now connected via drop-links for improved efficiency.

The chassis runs on 18-inch Michelin Pilot Sport tyres specially developed for the Renault Sport Clio V6. They provide greater directional stiffness for improved precision, and good feedback of steering feel for the best possible driving pleasure. A popular feature in the former version, the ABS-equipped braking system benefits from the higher level of grip provided by these new tyres.

In the 2004 Clio V6, the six-speed "PK6" gearbox has been specially adapted. The shorter final drive lowers the overall gearing to the benefit of response and acceleration. The internal gears are more closely spaced with new ratios for first, second and third. These developments are accompanied by a shift mechanism which has been redesigned for more sporting operation: selector movements have been reduced by 20% and the stops are more pronounced. These changes significantly improve the ease and precision of gearchanging.

With a two-seat rear-drive layout and a V6 engine transversely installed in the midrear position, the Renault Sport Clio V6 is an exclusive sporting model designed to offer the maximum amount of pleasure: pleasure in owning a distinctive car, and pleasure in using a new, nimble and safe chassis, and an expressive engine delivering 255bhp mated to a sports-type gearbox. The Clio V6 offers unusually high performance, notably with a 0-60 mph time of less than 6 seconds.

Featuring a unique and thoroughbred design, the Renault Sport Clio V6 displays an even more incisive front face by adopting the styling of the Clio. The front bumper, grille, bonnet and twin-unit xenon headlamps are entirely new. The very slender headlamp units are installed in new extended front wings which accommodate the 18-inch tyres mounted on OZ "Superturismo" rims with a gloss finish. These wheels completely fill the wheel arch openings and, with the increased wheelbase, are moved out well towards the four corners of the Clio V6.
