After his public debut in an opening car during the last Rallye Monte-Carlo, The Renault Clio Rally4 has passed a new decisive stage in its young career, namely obtaining its FIA homologation.
Since this Thursday, April 1, the latest Renault Sport can be entered in competition, after more than 5,000 km in testing, notably led by Stéphane Sarrazin, Bryan Bouffier, Jean-Sébastien Vigion and Manu Guigou.
Big sister of the Rally5, with which it shares the same base, the Clio Rally4 can count on a 4-cylinder unit of 1330 cm3 supercharged to offer 215 hp via the adoption of a new turbo, new pistons, a new camshaft and new connecting rods.
PFC brakes and Bos shock absorbers complete the overall package offered by the Losange. “This homologation rewards the incredible work done by our teams during the design and development of the Clio Rally4, specifies Benoît Nogier, racing sales director.
We are very proud of the product we offer – a car designed without compromising on performance, safety and fun on any terrain. The Clio Rally4 has only one goal: to become the new benchmark in its category.
It perfectly meets the specifications that we had set for ourselves, as we saw in the difficult stages of the last Monte-Carlo. Our next deadlines now concern the first deliveries and its debut in competition this spring. We are already working on some exciting projects that we can’t wait to share with you! “
