Renault Clio V6

Renault revealed a new model that is actually the second generation Clio V6. The model is a two-seat, rear-drive layout and has a lot of other aggressive features in comparison with the previous one. The front bumper, grille, bonnet and twin-unit xenon headlamps are entirely new. Also the model features a new rear hatch wing that is both longer and higher and extends the flow-line of the roof. To improve the efficiency, the front suspension angle has been increased and a larger anti-roll bar is now connected via drop-links. This also improves the perception of loads as well as achieving more progressive response in the transient phase an in extreme conditions of use. The model is assembled at the Alpine facility in Dieppe using bodies supplied by a special department within the Flins factory. The Clio V6 benefits from the quality standards applied to full-scale production and from the know-how of workers at Alpine Plant for a production rate of 12 cars per day.

The new Renault is the second generation Clio V6 and is one of the most exciting car. The vehicle is a two-seat, rear-drive layout, V6 engine and has more aggressive features then the previous one.

The front bumper, grille, bonnet and twin-unit xenon headlamps are entirely new. At the rear, a new rear hatch wing that is both longer and higher extends the flow-line of the roof.

The chassis benefits from a more sporting components that combining stiffness with progressiveness. The front suspension castor angle has been increased and a larger anti-roll bar is now connected via drop-links for improved efficiency. The kinematics of the rear suspension has been completely revised with the adoption of a new sub-frame. Thanks to new mounting points and longer radius arms, the rear wheels are moved further aft. The addition of an anti-roll bar attached via drop-links significantly improves the perception of loads as well as achieving more progressive response in the transient phase and in extreme conditions of use.

Intended for the same customer base that was won over by the previous version - 1630 units of which were built in 20 months ā€" the Clio V6 is assembled at the Alpine facility in Dieppe using bodies supplied by a special department within the Flins factory. The Clio V6 thus benefits from the quality standards applied to full-scale production and from the know-how of workers at Alpineā€™s Dieppe plant for a production rate of 12 cars per day.
