Description

FOR SALE; A menacing Mk2 V6 in Black Gold.

EQUIPMENT
Climate control, 18″ alloy wheels, Xenon lights, Leather/Alcantara upholstery, Auto wipers, Auto lights, Cruise control, 6 Cd changer, Renault Sport kickplates, Painted calipers.

EXTERIOR
The Clio V6 looks fantastic in or out of our studio and makes a serious impact on first view, a supercar packaged into a hatchback of compact aggression. Shimmering in the sun with its metallic black gold paint, it appears almost two tone with a prominent gold flake that adds depth and lustre to the brutish aesthetic.

With the large side intakes in contrasting titanium competing for your attention, the extra wide body work leaves no doubt the V6 turns heads today as much as when it left the factory. This particular model has had a great deal of care and attention, and with a recently sprayed front bumper the car sits in excellent order all round.

INTERIOR
The interior is trimmed with a Motorsport derived mixture of dark grey leather and alcantara that presents clean and free of any major marks or stains to the acknowledged fragility of the Renault interior. A number of features unique to the V6, lift the cabin; the body coloured centre console, alcantara handbrake and gear gaiters which also remain soft and supple in offering a stylish departure from vinyl and plastics. The all important V6 plaque sits proudly stating the build number.

The seats are deeply supportive with wide wing bolsters, only a slight nick by the drivers bolster betraying their age. The alloy gear knob falls to hand exactly where you want it and sitting behind the wheel, feels absolutely aligned with the Renault Sport bloodline; beautifully communicative with a tactile weight and feel.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
A 3 litre V6 is the last thing you’d expect to find in a Clio, let alone positioned where the back seats usually are; it is this combination that has set a revered reputation that commands respect. The sonorous V6 dominates proceedings with a growling exhaust note enhance by a sports exhaust, whilst torque is plentiful ensuring more sedate pace is no effort at all.

A major overhaul of the drivetrain at 34,465 miles included a new gearbox, clutch and diff, a known weakness on V6′s, so as you would expect the gear change feels satisfyingly tight and positive in keeping with a much newer car.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This phase 2 V6 comes with factory fit OZ Supertourismo wheels finished in sparkling silver, which offset nicely against the flickering black gold paint work. Having been recently acid dipped and re-painted the wheels look stunning with red calipers siting behind them with the correct AP Racing decals.

Recent brake discs and pads to front ensure this 255 stops as it should, pulling up strongly in a straight line.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new in July 2004 there are plenty of invoices to annotate history with a first visit to the main dealer at 2,797 miles. Previous owners have clearly been fastidious, with invoices for nitrogen filled tyres and full 4 wheel alignment carried out with all the correct phase 2 adjustments. Cambelt, Water pump and Aux belt kit were all replaced in September of 2015 with marque specialist Mark Fish.

The original owners pack is supplied with original wallet, driver’s handbook and service book along with old MOT’s to back up mileage. A spare key is also included.
