Clio Renaultsport 197 F1 Team R27: fan gets dream car in unique colour

A dream has come true for one lucky Renault fan whose dream car was handed over to him in memory of a lost friend. The special Clio Renaultsport 197 F1 Team R27 – not sure how they manage to remember all this themselves – was the last of 500 limited-edition units produced for the UK, particularly for those who enjoy their track days.

The car, launched last April, features Renault’s new Cup chassis for a stiffer, sportier ride with matching stiff dampering. Owner of number 500 James Brookes is an avid fan of the French marque and his circle of friends and family are all owners of Renault. His late brother Will, who passed away in an accident, was among them, and this car is dedicated to him. Brookes asked Renaultsport, through their website’s community portal, if they could produce this in the once-off colour Glacier White. They duly agreed.

A great gesture from Renault indeed.
