Renault has introduced the special edition Clio RS Red Bull Racing RB7.

Designed to highlight the brand's racing pedigree, the model has a Profond Black exterior with Sirius Yellow accents, a checkered roof decal and Red Bull badging. There's also 18-inch wheels with Bridgestone RE050A tires.

The cabin features Recaro sport seats, an individually-numbered plaque and an R.S. Monitor that displays "performance-related data - such as 0-100kph times and other information aimed at fine-tuning driving styles - in real time."

Power comes from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 203 PS (149 kW / 200 hp) and 215 Nm (159 lb-ft) of torque. It should enable the hatchback to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph).

The Clio RS Red Bull Racing RB7 will be available in five countries - France, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium and Austria - and French pricing starts at €27,900.
