Renault Clio Williams: The French GTI.

Oct 01, 2022,07:01 AM

From 1993, so almost 30 years old! 

At that time, it was something. Funny to drive, quite fast, it was, yes, a very good GTI à la Française. 

Now, the body looks outdated, but it still has its charm. 

The combination of gold wheels with the blue body was eye catching.

I got goose bumps when i saw this and had a big smile on my face. My brother owned this car and sold it to me when i did my driver license. It was a SWISS CHAMPION edition of the Clio Williams, meaning even more rare. This car was so much fun to drive, so... 

My dream car, back then when I was 20

Well maybe second place after the Integrale, but this was completely out of my reach. The Clio was ruling the streets back then… sweet!

I grew up surrounded by...

Uno Turbo, Y10 turbo, 205 GTI, both 1.6 and 1.9 litres, Clio 16v, Golf GTI (now my daughter's) amd... Submariners, of course!

Fun car but…

… my favourite from around that time was the Renault Espace people carrier fitted with the Williams Renault F1 engine. You could drive at nearly 200mph with 5 friends! Picture courtesy of the internet. ...  

I don’t think we got this version of the Clio here in the US.

I think it still looks cool, but then again I was graduating college when this came out so my taste might just be commensurate with my age 🤷🏼‍♂️. I’d drive that today!

This car is considered the best hot hatch of all time !

I never had the chance to try it out or never have been in the passenger seat. I did try the Clio Rsi which was a bit lighter but had less power, 110 hp i think, out of a 1.8 litre engine, Anyway, the sucessors to the Williams weren’t particularly bad eit...  

Haha !!!

Not with the Clio ... at least not the first 160.000 km ... with the Beemer I knew after 1000 km I was going to end up somewhere I wasn't supposed to end up. Eventually it took over 80.000 km ...

Hehehe... I told you!
