Renault extending the Clio Gordini lineup

Just a few weeks after extending the Wind Roadster lineup to include a temptingly budget-friendly 1.2-litre version, the growing Gordini range now takes in two extra Clios, which have a starting price of £14,000. The Gordini lineup has been proven to be an immense hit, as demonstrated by the performance of the Clio Gordini which comprises 27 per cent of overall European sales of Clio Renaultsport and more than 10 per cent in the United Kingdom.

The latest variants of the iconic Gordini badge let buyers in the UK get the feel and look of the 200hp flagship Gordini, but with lower emission, fuel consumption, and running costs. They will debut in three-door form with the diesel 1.5 dCi 106 and petrol 1.6 VVT 128.

Putting a little extra appeal and power to the bestselling model range of Renault, the petrol model embraces the rev-loving engine from the former GT, itself slightly detuned from the Twingo Renaultsport 133.

2011 Renault Clio Gordini: official details, photos, specs and price

Renault is adding the Clio Gordini to its lineup. While there has already been a Gordini-badged version with the same name that has come out previously, this is different. The old one was a 200hp hot hatch while this new model is more practical and is based on the Clio GT. The Gordini uses the same body and engine options while it adds a few more white stripes.

Consumers can choose between petrol (1.6 16V 128 hp, Euro5, 155g of CO2/km) or diesel (1.5 dCi 105 hp, Euro5, 110g of CO2/km) powertrains. According to Renault, the Gordini range has been very successful. About 36% of the sales for Clio RS were from France.

This model wore the double stripes down the body. Clio Gordini can be viewed at French dealerships that have joined Renault’s Portes Ouvertes operation, which is set for Sept. 15-19, 2011. Order books have been opened in the Hexagon.

After Renault was reported to have shelved its plans to revive the iconic Alpine brand for a new stand alone sports car, comments from a senior executive caused hopes to be raised with the hint that the Gordini name will instead be brought back.

Gordini was an independent carmaker started by Amedee Gordini which was responsible for tuning a number of Renault models in the 50s and 60s.

It was reported that Renault will be coming out with some sporty new models beginning next year with the presentation of a Gordini brand in-house tuner.

Last week we spoke about the intentions of Renault to revive one of its most popular sporting badges: the Gordini. Now it seems that everything is ready! The carmaker aims to provide a competition to the top selling MINI which has been enjoying great success with the Cooper and Cooper S versions.

The Gordini, which sits just below the Renaultsport performance range, will create a new lineup of hot hatches which will provide customers broader opportunities for individualizing their vehicle. The revived brand will come with a wide-range of paint finishes, body stripes and a combination of alloy rims.

It's a strategy that worked well for MINI (and Fiat with its Abarth lineup) and which Renault wish to take advantage of. First in line will be Twingo Gordini which is set to be introduced next year. Close behind will be hot variants of the Clio together with the Megane Coupe which comes with the well-known Gordini blue paint scheme with striking white stripes contrasted by black alloy rims.

The Clio Gordini boasts a distinct personality; it has a Malte Blue color that features two heritage white stripes. Gloss black highlights are featured on the car's front bumper and rear diffuser.

To give its lineup more of a premium edge, Renault has officially announced that it is bringing back the iconic Gordini badge. The revived brand will mean that Renault can go up against the likes of the Mini Cooper and Abarth 500 by offering extensive personalization of its hot hatches. This doesn´t mean that sharper versions of the Twingo, Clio and Megane will follow.

Renault’s new Gordini range will still be mechanically identical. The modifications include new wheels, colors and interior options for a premium over the Renaultsport cars.

The first to be given this treatment is the Renault Twingo Gordini RS, which is based on the Renaultsport Twingo 133, due to be unveiled on November 25 on the Champs Elysees. This move is said to be included in Renault's masterplan to shake up the respected Renaultsport brand.
