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.
The three-door version is priced from €18,450 while the five-door version has a starting price of €19,050. The version that’s powered by the 1.5-liter 105 hp diesel is priced from €20,750 for the three-door version while the Clio with five doors has a price of €21,350.
The new model is being sold off in France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria Portugal, Spain, Slovenia, Croatia, and Serbia.
The theme could be seen even inside the cabin, which features Gordini blue and dark grey leather seats with embossed Gordini logo, satin chrome effect gearknob with blue Gordini badge and blue gearstick surround.
The Gordini elements are complemented by high-standard specs like Bluetooth connectivity, climate control and multi-functional TunePoint for USB connections.
