Renault Clio V6 255

Renault Clio V6 255 Cromodora Wheels Trophy Spoiler Front Splitter

My Renault Clio V6 255 was a Phase II model, one of 354 UK cars. My car was number 218 and was first registered in January 2005. When purchased the car had covered only 22,500 miles and I sold it with 26,000 miles on the clock. A lot of work was done to the car to make it more track focused and this is shown in the specification.
