Spy Shots: Renault Clio RS Stripped of its Camouflage
Renault engineers have been testing the more powerful version of the current Clio for some time, but we were finally able to get pictures of the future Clio RS devoid of any camouflage. As you can see from these pictures, the RS version will feature a more aggressive exterior look with bigger air intakes in the front bumper and bigger wheels and brakes. At the rear, you will also notice two big exhaust pipes, one on each side.
As for the engine lineup, expect to see turbocharged versions of the engines found in the standard Clio. This means we will get a choice of 1.2 and 1.4 turbocharged tCe four-cylinder engines with outputs taken up to an impressive 200 HP. It is also being rumored that a new 900 cc three cylinder engine will be added to the line-up.
The new Renault Clio RS will debut sometime in 2013.
