Hot hatch - Renault Clio 172

For me, this Renault Clio is nostalgic. 20 years ago, my father owned one, and we considered it a very fast powerful car :smiley:

Maybe somebody has such a car? Share your Renault pictures with me!

Renault stopped selling cars in The US in 1991, fully 7 years before that Clio model was introduced, so the chance of the US-based members of this forum having owned one of them is not likely.

Once in a while, a few people from Europe (like you??) or another continent, wander into this North America-based forum, so it is possible that one of those rare visitors will respond, but you almost surely won’t get a response from the 99% US-based forum members.

These are still a few years off from being legal to bring into the US other than as a museum display piece, there’s a museum here in the US that has a Clio Williams among others called the Lane Motor Museum. Harry Metcalfe formerly of EVO Magazine has raved about his Clio 182 though.

Oh, good point, you are right. That is not the best place for such a discussion. Sorry.

No need to apologize!
When newcomers come to this site, they have no way of knowing that 99% of the members live in The US. And, you might not have been aware that Renault left the US marketplace many decades ago.
