Article by Christian A., on March 5, 2014

Few years ago, Renault created the Monaco GP signature and applied it on the Laguna Coupe, Megane Coupe and Megane R.S. in order to pay homage to the Monaco Grand Prix. At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the French carmaker unveiled a special edition of the Clio R.S. 200 EDC associated with the Monaco GP.

Offered as a limited edition, the Clio R.S. EDC Monaco GP will go on sale in about 20 markets including Japan and Australia, from the end of March 2014. The new edition will be easily recognizable thanks to the exclusive Pearlescent White paintwork or the special Platinum Grey as an option, while the black roof will be optional.

Moreover, the exterior features a front blade, rear diffuser, side protective strips, door handles, 17-inch Tibor or 18-inch Radicale alloy wheels and door mirrors. The rear spoiler is finished in black too, just like the hatchback shroud when a reversing camera is specified. The special Monaco GP badge is found on the bodywork’s lower protective panels.

The interior is dominated by complementary black and grey hues, while the Dark Metal decorative signatures can be found on the steering wheel, gear lever knob and gaiter, steering wheel boss, loudspeaker surrounds and the internal door handles. A special touch is brought by the Technique Grey seatbelts. Christened Riviera, the leather upholstery incorporates grey stitching.

The Monaco GP branding is also found on the numbered door sills, while the Renault Sport mats come with a grey border. The comprehensive list of standard equipment includes extra-tinted glass (rear side windows and rear screen), heated front seats and Renault’s connected R-Link tablet. As an option, the potent R.S.

Monitor 2.0 telemetry system is available. Under the hood we find the 1.6-liter Turbo engine that delivers 200 hp, mated to a six-speed dual-clutch EDC transmission.
