Renault Clio R.S. Red Bull Racing RB7: quintessentially sporty
To celebrate its Formula 1 Constructors' world crown with Red Bull Racing in 2011, Renault Sport has released a limited edition version of Clio R.S.: Clio R.S. Red Bull Racing RB7...
A vehicle dedicated to performance (Cup chassis, 18-inch black Interlagos wheels, R.S. Monitor, etc.), with forceful looks
Clio R.S. Red Bull Racing RB7 will be marketed in five countries: France, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium and Austria. Order books open on March 14 in France where the car's tax-paid price will be €27,900
"Clio R.S. Red Bull Racing RB7 is a hot hatch combining stunning looks with the very latest features to have been developed by the wizards at Renault Sport Technologies," enthuses Jean-Maxime Boulanger, Clio Renault Sport Product Manager. "Clio R.S. Red Bull Racing RB7 is a dynamic car which will definitely turn heads. It is a tribute to the very close ties that exist between Renault Sport Technologies and Renault Sport F1!"
A powerful design and cutting-edge technologies
Clio R.S. Red Bull Racing RB7, the latest limited-edition version of Clio R.S., capitalises on the basic model's acclaimed strengths, something which is sure not to escape sporting car and motorsport enthusiasts. Its 18-inch black Interlagos wheels are equipped with Bridgestone RE050A tyres, the same as those fitted to Mégane R.S. Trophy which established a new lap record round the Nürburgring's Nordschleife in June 2011. Its Profond Black body colour provides a striking contrast with its Sirius Yellow F1-style blade, door mirror housings and diffuser. Meanwhile, its two-litre 203-horsepower engine has been carefully tuned to deliver more than 100hp per litre! These sporty credentials are echoed by the Renault Sport chequered-pattern roof decal which combines with the Red Bull Racing badging on the doors.
These exterior features merely serve to highlight Clio R.S. Red Bull Racing RB7's extreme, powerful stance.
High-end sporty interior appointments
Clio R.S. Red Bull Racing RB7's excellence and aggressive, sporty looks are mirrored by an interior equipment package to match. The list includes automatic climate control, automatic headlight activation, a hands-free card, yellow fabric Recaro bucket seats, a Renault Sport-badged gear lever knob, a personalised numbered plaque and an audio connection box. It also features R.S. Monitor, an electronic on-board driving coach which displays performance-related data -- such as 0-100kph times and other information aimed at fine-tuning driving styles -- in real time. Clio R.S. Red Bull Racing RB7's exceptional equipment specification is sure to find favour with owners who have a taste for technology and sporty performance.
The car eloquently showcases the transfer of skills between Renault's expertise in Formula 1 (Red Bull Racing, Lotus F1 Team, Caterham F1 Team and Williams F1 Team will all benefit from Renault power in 2012) and the brand's road cars.
Clio R.S. Red Bull Racing RB7 badge is the first limited edition in a series which go on to include Twingo R.S. and Mégane R.S.
Clio R.S. background information
Since its launch in the second half of 2006, Clio R.S. has been made in Dieppe, France, and is today marketed on four continents: Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania. It was developed by Renault Sport Technologies and has always sought to stand out as a benchmark in hot hatch comparison tests. It is this approach which has led Clio R.S. to be fine-tuned over time thanks to a number of improvements, including the introduction of revised styling in 2009. Its career has been buoyed by the release on all its markets of bespoke limited editions versions like Clio R.S. Ange & Démon, R.S. 20th Anniversaire and the emblematic Gordini R.S.

2012 Renault Alpine A110-50 Concept Car - Test Drive
The Renault Alpine A110-50 concept car -- Engine and gearbox
Developed on the same technical platform as Mégane Trophy, the Renault
concept car also boasts the same chief technical characteristics.
It runs the Renault V4Y engine block, a 3.5 litre 24-valve 400hp V6 mounted
in a mid-rear
position. The crankcase (semi-wet), moving parts (pistons, connecting rods,
crankshaft), valve train (camshafts and valve springs) and Exhaust system are specific compared to the
version featured on productions models.
Furthermore, the Renault Alpine A110-50 uses the carbon air intake employed
The inlet manifold is fed by a new roof-mounted air intake. This
development broadens the engine's power band, with additional horsepower at all engine
speeds. The engine mapping has been optimised for these modifications.
The Renault Alpine A110-50 concept car is fitted with a semi-automatic
six-speed sequential gearbox, as well as a twin-plate clutch that can be
controlled using either the clutch pedal or a paddle on the steering wheel.
The gearbox is fitted longitudinally behind the engine and incorporates a
limited-slip differential (discs and ramps) with adjustable pre-loading.
The cerametallic twin-plate clutch is also specific to the car. It is
activated automatically when downshifting, guaranteeing fast and reliable
A black box at the heart of Renault Alpine A110-50 Supplied by
Magneti-Marelli, the Marvell 6R electronic control unit includes functions
for engine management, gearbox control and data acquisition.
Even more accurate data acquisition
All data collected by the Renault Alpine A110-50 can be analysed using
version 4 of the benchmark Wintax software. Wintax 4 enables advanced
analysis of more than 50 parameters:
engine speed, gear, steering angle, car speed, throttle position, brake
pressure... This information allows drivers and engineers to optimise
settings and driving style. Wintax 4 data analysis also enables even faster diagnosis of any technical
"Developing this concept car was a great adventure. It was a catalyst for
creativity. We wanted to make a Berlinette that was of our time, and which
boldly embodies Renault's
passion for motorsport. We were guided by our hearts and emotions." Axel
CHAPTER 4: Renault Alpine A110-50 -- The legacy of the Berlinette
1962 - A star is born
When Jean Rédélé unveiled the A110 Berlinette at the 1962 Paris Motor
Show, it marked the
start of an Alpine adventure for the engine from the Renault 8. The car had
been developed from the Alpine A108, but was more stylish and more dynamic,
with an even lower engine cover, a larger glazed area and the rear lights
from the Renault 8. The new engine demanded changes to the air intakes:
with the radiator mounted at the rear, cooling exits were opened in the
bodywork behind the rear wheel arches, disguised with four chrome strips.
The changes served only to heighten the elegance of the A110 Berlinette.
The restrained, balanced silhouette maintained its extremely pure lines.
A car for the enthusiast
To drive a Berlinette is a life-changing experience. Above all, it was
designed to win rallies, so it's not surprising that it boasts a certain
pedigree; not a tricky personality, but real character.
You don't climb aboard an Alpine, you slide into it. But once you're behind
the wheel, the connection is immediate. Agility and traction are particular
strong points thanks to the mid-rear position engine, which tends to
produce oversteer that is easy to control using the steering and
throttle. It's sometimes a little trickier to keep going in a straight
line, but life's all about compromise... This isn't a car you simply take
for a drive -- it demands to be properly driven. Its weaknesses are also
compare it! Renault Mégane RS vs. Golf GTI | drive it
It's time to compare two sporty compact cars. The Volkswagen Golf GTI has
always been at the top of this category, but now the competition from
around Europe is starting to catch up.The Renault Mégane RS is only
available as a two door at the moment, but it has 40 horsepower more under the
hood. Is that going to be enough to get past the tried and tested German
car? Our test has the answers.
