Due to be revealed at the World Series by Renault event at Silvesrstone on the weekend of 4th / 5th July (the same weekend as the Goodwood Festival of Speed, which might keep the numbers down), Renault has revealed the World Series Editions of the Clio, Megane Hatch and Megane Coupe.
The World Series Limited Editions are based on the Dynamique trim level, but throw in a chunk of extra kit to make these World Series Limited Editions.
The Renault Clio World Series gets side skirts, an extended front spoiler, new back bumper and the required ‘WSR’ badges. You get an engine choice – the 1.2 litre 75, the nTCe 100 or the dCI oil-burner.
The Megane Hatch WRS also gets an extended front spoiler, bumper inserts like the coupe, side skirts and a new rear bumper. More WSR badges and a choice of engines, this time the 1.6 16V 110 or the diesel dCi 106. You also get a set of 17″ alloys. The Meagane Coupe just gets the 17″ alloys, extended front spoiler, side skirts and new back bumper.
In essence, these are lightweight versions of the Renault Megane RenaultSport and the Renault Clio RenaultSport, but with a chunck less power and therefore more insurance friendly, particularly for younger drivers.
You’re getting a decent amount of extra kit for your money, and they do look pretty good. Orders are being taken from 1st July and the cars will be in UK showrooms on 6th July.
