Renaultsport Twingo & Clio 'Silverstone GP' - just 50 of each available

‘Now what moniker can we hang on the back of a Renaultsport Twingo and Renaultsport Clio to get our British customers to part with their hard-earned?’, the man from Renault was heard to say. ‘I know’, he said, ‘Silverstone will be in the news next week – all shiny and new and quick. That’ll do – we’ve only got 50 of each with that left-over paint to flog.’

And so we get treated to a Limited Edition of just 50 cars each of the Twingo Renaultsport 133 ‘Silverstone GP’ Limited Edition and the  Clio Renaultsport 200 ‘Silverstone GP’ Limited Edition. Two for the price of one marketing meeting. Lucky Renaultsport customers.

Both the Twingo and Clio Silverstone get the ‘Cup’ chassis, which is appropriate for Silverstone’s newly-sorted circuit but may mean a season ticket for the chiropractors on real roads.

They also get that left-over metallic silver paint and what Renault call ‘Deep Black’ contrasting bits, including 17″ alloys and black door mirrors. The roof also gets a coat of black paint as they didn’t have quite enough of the left-over silver to cover all 100 cars.

‘Deep Black’ extends to the rear spoiler and fog light surrounds on the Twingo, which also gets a stainless steel exhaust. Both cars also get  ’I'm important’ tints to make them go quicker. Oh, and you get a badge on the B-Pillar which says ‘Silverstone GP’, complete with a little circuit map. Sweet.

Inside the Silverstone theme extends to a numbered plaque and Renaultsport’s Monitor to track performance. Grey and black mats abound and the Clio gets some proper extras with Recaros, Bluetooth and iPod connection.

To make the Silverstone cars an easy sale, Renault are also throwing in a Renaultsport Experience at Silverstone in your car once you’ve forked out £14,995 for the Twingo Renaultsport 133 Silverstone and £19.995 for the Clio Renaultsport 200 Silverstone.

And actually, they’re really not bad value at all.
