Renaultsport Silverstone GP Limited Editions


A short time after releasing the superb Megane RS 265 Trophy, Reaultsport has come up with two more incredibly hot but more affordable hatchbacks, the Twingo Renaultsport 133 and Clio Renaultsport 200 ‘Silverstone GP’ limited editions.

Priced from £14,995 and £19,995 respectively, this hot hatches has the same performance as the standard versions, but they come with extra visual appeal and more standard equipments fitted to them.

Both Silverstone GP limited editions are available to order from 1st July. Customers will receive a free Renaultsport Experience at Silverstone, usually £175, so that they can explore the full handling and performance potential of their new metal in a real circuit environment, but under the expert tuition of a fully-qualified instructor.

As for the details and specs of the car, check out the press release below:

Following the recent launch of the flagship 265hp Trophy version of Mégane Renaultsport, its two smaller, but no less thrilling, performance siblings, Twingo and Clio Renaultsport, now welcome their own top-of-the-range versions, the ‘Silverstone GP’ limited editions, on sale from 1st July 2011.

Renault UK has an existing relationship with Silverstone, the country’s most famous motor racing circuit and home of the British Grand Prix, through a fleet of Renaultsport trackday experience cars and the venue for several of the performance division’s trackdays, so it was only natural that the French marque took it as its latest inspiration.

Both new models have been specifically created for the UK market, still the largest home of Renault’s hot hatches worldwide, with only 50 of each available. The effusive Twingo Renaultsport 133, costs £14,995, while the top-of-the-range Clio Renaultsport 200 comes in at £19,995. With a wealth of extra equipment over the standard Renaultsport versions on which they’re based, both limited editions offer exceptional value-for-money, combined with added exclusivity.

Both cars share the same purposeful stance, as if they were specifically honed to grace the Silverstone tarmac. Each sits on lowered Cup Chassis with a striking combination of silver metallic paint and contrasting ‘Deep Black’ details, including 17” alloy wheels (‘Speedline’ on the Clio), roof and door mirrors. Completing the exclusive look, both of the new limited edition Renaultsports also feature extra-tinted rear windows and Silverstone GP B-pillar badges inscribed with the new grand prix circuit map. The Twingo also benefits from a matching ‘Deep Black’ rear spoiler and fog light surrounds.

The pocket-rocket Twingo notably gains an all-new Renaultsport full stainless steel exhaust system, providing a suitable throaty soundtrack to match its visual presence.

On the inside, the two new versions boast a unique numbered interior plaque (1-50), Renaultsport Monitor onboard performance tracking system and grey and black Renaultsport carpet mats. The Clio also features Renaultsport Recaro front seats, Bluetooth and multi-functional TunePoint for portable music players.
