Clio is undoubted the most successful car in his class. Any nineth
car in this class is an Clio.
stopping production of Renault Williams was the chair of the king
of the class with no one sitting in it. This month there will be a
new ruler : Renault Clio Sport 2.0 16V.
of Clio Sport motor is the engine F4R 2.0 16V used in the cars
Espace, Laguna and Scenic. Thanks to application of new
technologies an output enhancement was reached up to 172 HP (124
kW) with 6,250 r.p.m. and turning moment 200 Nm with 5,400 r.p.m.
(compare with F4R 140k / 2,500 r.p.m. and 188 Nm / 3,750 r.p.m.).
from contrivances used on other engines of series F as for
instance variable valve timing, hollow valve cam, proving of
suction and collecting exhaust piping,
new are the cylinder heads, valves are made of Nickel (75 _%),
Chromium (25%) and Titanium alloy, sparking plugs with Platinum
electrode and service life 120,000 km. By alteration of valves
adjustment a better fuelling during high engine speed is reached,
two parallel catalysts attain better waste gas flow. Thanks to
this and other alterations the turning moment don't decrease under
85% of its maximum between 2,500 and 6,500 r.p.m. and 95% output
is reached among 5,800 and 6,250 r.p.m.
this new engine with engine Clio Williams 2.0 (F7R) the new one is
better by 22HP and 25 Nm. The consumption decreased by 0,2l/100
transmission on wheels is realized by the gearbox JCS with close
oriented speed gears. The instrument board is equipped with an
optimum routes indicator during gears shifting by means of taking
of a full advantage of best engine-output parameters. The speed
limit device is activated at 7,250 r.p.m on the 1. and 2. speed
gear and at 7,000 r.p.m. on
the 3., 4. and 5. speed gear.
front axle is a MacPherson one, equipped with disk brakes,
internal cooling and diameter 280 mm. The rear torsional H-tailed
axle is equipped with discs diameter 228 mm. 15 inches wheel rims
195/55. Using ABS of last type and EBV (Electronic Brakes Varying)
the braking distance was shortened under 40 m. Front wheel spacing
enlarged by 27 mm, the rear one by 17 mm. The centre of gravity
displaced by 15 mm lower.
A delicacy at least : The interior will be made of Alcantara
The price in France is designated on 134,900 FRF (the car ain't on
the Czech market so far at all.)
