Renault Sport Technologies released some information about the Clio Renaultsport R3T rally car. It will launch in 2014, and the new turbo engined model was shown off at the Rallye du Var this past weekend.
The R3T will succeed the Clio Renaultsport R3 launched in 2006, and was built to comply with FIA R3 regulations that include cars with performance comparable to Super 1600 cars at half the price.
Renault is developing a new R3 car, which will be called Clio Renaultsport R3T because of the turbo engine. The Clio R3T is based on the road-going Clio Renaultsport 200 Turbo EDC, featuring the 1.6-liter turbocharged unit adapted to racing by Renault Sport’s engineers.
It will include a six speed sequential gearbox with optional steering-wheel paddle shifts in the asphalt version. The R3T will also feature specialized equipment from suppliers such as Sadev for gearboxes, Sachs for shock absorbers, PFC for brakes and Cosworth for electronics.
“Put through its paces by several drivers, the Clio Renaultsport R3T will be tested for more than ten weeks on dirt and tarmac with a view to identifying the best options,” Boulanger said. The car is expected to receive approval in the second half of 2014.
