    Ultimate Clio Renaultsport 182 with final 'Trophy' edition

    Renaultsport’s ‘Best Hot Hatch Ever’ has arrived in the form of the Clio Renaultsport 182 Trophy, conceived solely for the UK market and limited to a production run of just 500 right-hand drive models.

    Based on the Clio Renaultsport 182 Cup, the Trophy version is distinguished at first glance by its Capsicum Red livery, Trophy logos on both rear sills and the larger rear spoiler from the V6. Inside it’s fitted with black Recaro Sport Trendline seats providing a lower driving position. The Renaultsport steering wheel is fitted with leather rim and rubber thumb grips. The wheels are 16 inch Speedline Turini alloys in anthracite; each one saving 1.3kg of weight.

    Order books open on Friday 27th May and the price is £15,500 on the road. Unusually, there is no list of optional equipment. Renaultsport sees no need for one, as this is Renaultsport’s Best Hot Hatch Ever, remember?
    I would do anything to get £15,500 to buy one of these things man!, the colour just sticks out, its lovely!

    Woah, that thing has got to be impressive - a mate at work has just got the 182cup, and that goes like stink. Might keep my eye open for a 182 when the time comes to getting a new car

    yeah its amazing value, did you watch the video on the site? the guy gets the back end out alot and it just sorts its self out and keeps going.

    so now all i need is £15,500 to buy it and then another £15,000 to insure it!

    i think this has acctually made the 182 my favourite car over the Seat Leon Cupra R now.
