The "172 Cup" was built exclusively for the UK market: According to our research only 2,236 copies have been built and probably not many of them survived. This Renault Clio already has rarity value, is a lot of fun and will increase in value.
The 172 Cup is particularly distinguished by the fact that it was built consistently as a "club sport": Without ABS, without ESP, no air conditioning, no Xenon, no rain or light sensor. This makes it much lighter than the Clio B RS Sport.
This interesting vehicle was imported directly from UK to Germany in January 2019.
The vehicle immediately received various modifications:
- AP adjustable suspension built in - driver and passenger seat "SPARCO Sprint FIA" - homologated until 2022 - Roll bar of the company PLEIE made of aluminium - with certificate - Brake discs and pads from BREMBO - 4-point harnesses from SCHROTH with ECE approval - Spacers from EIBACH (30 mm on front axle, 32 mm on rear axle) - strut brace front and rear from WIECHERS - torque arm from POWERFLEX - engine mounts from POWERFLEX - control arm from POWERFLEX - brake lines STAHLFLEX with vehicle type approval - Oil pressure and oil temperature display of RAID HP (in the radio slot - radio cabling is still available) - Oil filter flange by RAID HP - Voltmeter - Airbox by BMC CDA Carbon Airbox - Federal 595 RS-R semi slicks (205/45 R16) - original tyres 195/45 R16 - Some of the changes are already added to the vehicle documents or do not require registration (ABE). Some changes should - when using the vehicle in Germany - still be added. - The original interior linings, headliner, rear seat bench, etc. are available and will be delivered with the vehicle.
