There was certainly something in the water at Renault in the late 90’s – they made the bonkers Avantime; a V6 powered 3dr MPV – and then someone decided to rip the rear seats out of their Clio supermini and replace them with a 3.0 litre V6.
That Phase 1 Clio V6 was somewhat hairy to drive, wanting to swap ends far more often than owners would have liked, so in 2003 they facelifted the whole range including the V6.
This Phase 2 V6 now had 255bhp, much sharper looks and it was far less likely to try and spin on every bend. It makes a superb noise inside and out thanks to that big lump behind the driver, and they’re extremely rare so you’re unlikely to see another on the road.
Winner can choose a Renault Clio V6 Phase 2 from the open market up to the value of £45,000.
We love this crazy hatchback - so grab yourself a Clio V6 Phase 2 for just £2.30!
