Renault Clio Williams (1993-1996) specifications Classic and Performance Car

What's not to like about a Renault Clio sporting a Williams F1-inspired blue and gold colour scheme, and 150bhp?


The first 'hot' Clio was the 16V that arrived in 1991, complete with flared wheelarches and a peppy 137bhp 1.8. The limited-edition Williams launched in 1993 was the real superstar, though, with its Sports Blue paint and gold Speedline alloy wheels. In fact it was developed by Renaultsport, not the F1 team, but thanks to a torquier 2.0 and chassis tweaks it was a riot to drive. Renault famously extended the initial production run of 3800 cars (500 for the UK) to over 12,100 by 1996, to the dismay of many original Willy owners.
