Geneva 2014: the Clio R.S. 200 EDC adopts the Monaco GP signature
In homage to the Monaco Grand Prix, the Monaco GP signature has appeared successively on the Laguna coupé, the Mégane Coupé and the Mégane R.S. Following in the illustrious footsteps of its predecessors, the Clio R.S. 200 EDC, revealed for the first time at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, is the latest model to sport the “Monaco GP” spirit and badge.
A legacy of class
The Monaco GP signature symbolises a strong personality, a sporting spirit, elegance and design. Combined with the versatility of the Clio R.S. 200 EDC, those qualities make it hugely seductive. The model is designed primarily for a female target, but will appeal to anyone who appreciates its array of equipment and sophisticated on-board atmosphere.
Sporty elegance on the outside…
You will recognize the Clio R.S. 200 EDC Monaco GP from its “pearlescent frost” paintwork, black roof (available as an option), as well as the decorative black highlights on the F1 strip, the side bumpers, door handles, wheel rims and side mirrors.
And of course the Monaco GP badging on the interior mouldings.
…and on the inside
As you climb into the vehicle, you will discover a sophisticated interior. Amid the black and grey harmonies, Dark Metal highlights rim the steering wheel, the gear knob and the speaker surrounds. The “Riviera” leather seat upholstery is enhanced with grey overstitching.
And equipment to match
Once you are comfortably seated behind the wheel of the Clio R.S. 200 EDC Monaco GP, you will discover an array of features in the Monaco GP spirit: dark-tinted rear side windows and rear windscreen, heated front seats, and the R-Link connected tablet. The R.S. Monitor 2.0 telemetric system is available as an option and includes the R.S. Replay function, which enables you to create and upload your itineraries.
The Clio R.S. 200 EDC Monaco GP is fitted with a 200 bhp 1.6-litre turbo engine mated with the six-speed dual-clutch EDC gearbox.
This numbered limited edition will start selling in late March 2014 in around 20 markets, including Japan and Australia.
