1996 Renault Clio Mk1 1.8 16S


  • A rare 16S recently restored
  • 135bhp successor to the Renault 5 GT Turbo
  • Very original and unmodified car
  • Classic dark metallic blue finish

The Plus

Renault's Clio Williams is widely regarded as one of the best compact sports cars of all time. But there's another Clio Mk1 that aficionados consider a very close rival.
This is the simply named 16S - known as the 16V outside France - on which Williams based its famous car. The 16S was almost as fast - 135bhp compared to the Williams' 145bhp - and featured the same wide arches and bonnet gills. The suspension and brakes were also strengthened, and the interior was decidedly sporty.
These light, fun-to-drive cars are now rare finds, especially in the freshly restored condition of this one. The bodywork has been extensively restored and repainted to a high standard of craftsmanship. With its original, unmodified interior, this is a very rare opportunity to acquire a 16S where all the work has already been done beforehand.
