"TIMING IS EVERYTHING"                   


Often in life, timing is everything. Split second intervals can lead to changes that resonate themselves over a lifetime. The importance of this split-second timing is especially true in the world of collecting classic cars and the inherent “chase” that comes along with finding those special parts.

MODEL HISTORY


This Renaultsport Clio 172 is a sound example of an exciting hot hatch, with a wonderfully engineered chassis, and presented in strong mechanical condition.


It is powered by a 172bhp 2. 0-litre four-cylinder engine, driven through a five-speed manual transmission. The car has been used and enjoyed sparingly with only 56, 856 miles from new.


An original right-hand drive UK car, this Clio 172 has spent most of its life in private collections with me knowing the previous owner. Since it has come into my care its undergone a full service and covered 0 miles since.


EXTERIOR


The bodywork is all in excelent order, HPI clear, with all the correct panel gaps. Finished in Monaco Blue and presents very well, with a smooth and glossy appearance around all panels - None of the dreded lacqure peal. Exterior of the Clio remains standard with the exception of the rear wiper delete.


All of the light lenses are original, body trims remain in great shape, no damage to the front or rear bumpers and fitted with the original 16-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels.


The vehicle's chassis also remains completely standard, and in excelent condition.

INTERIOR


The interior is how it left the factory and remains in very good condition, no aftermarket seats or seat spacers removed here.


Headlining is sound, with no sagging, and the rest of the interior trim around the dashboard and door cards remain unmodified.


ENGINE & TRANSMISSION


The last scheduled maintenance was carried out by Heroes & History race mechanic in March 2022, consisting of a full service listed below, 0 miles covered since.


- Powergrip Timing Belt / Dephaser Kit

- Water Pump

- Spark Plugs

The gearbox is very smooth-shifting and doesn't have any of the common synchro crunchings.

HISTORY FILE

Accompanying the car is a complete book pack including driver’s manuals, as well as old and new service and maintenance paperwork.


This Renaultsport Clio 172 is a great example of a highly entertaining hot hatch.


With this Clio having such low mileage you could drive your favorite B-road, with a huge smile on your face knowing your in one of the lowest mileage 172's out there, or store it away and watch the prices sore. It's your choice!
