A trophy version of the Clio Renaultsport has been revealed at the Geneva Motor Show.

The RS 220 Trophy adds to the classic sports line-up which include the 2005 Clio Renaultsport 182 Trophy and the Mégane Renaultsport 265 Trophy.

The power has been increased to 220hp in addition the 220 Trophy comes with a larger turbo, new air intake and revised exhaust system.

Even with this increase in power the RS 220 Trophy is actually more efficient as the Stop & Start system helps to reduce emissions by 6g/km.

Gear shifts are now up to 40 per cent faster in Normal and Sport mode and 50 per cent faster in Race mode. This is from a system known as R.S. Drive. This system features a launch Control and the ability to perform multiple down shifts by keeping the downshift paddle constantly held. Race mode is manual only.

Along with this, 18-inch ‘Radical’ wheels with black inserts and diamond-effect facings with a spread of ‘Trophy’ badging around the car.
