WALDOW Performance is the tuning arm of a German Autohaus or dealership representing Renault since the Sixties. They have now put together a nice upgrade kit for the fourth-generation Renault Clio RS which boosts the sporting appeal of the little hatchback.

Building hot hatches is in Renault’s blood, and although in recent years their priorities have somewhat shifted from pure performance-mindedness to making their cars more gadgety and geeky, there is still some of that old magic in the new Renault Clio RS that makes it a superior choice to the rivals. What WALDOW does is put back some of the lost lunacy back in to Clio.  So when you open the rear hatch on this Smurf Blue Clio RS you find that there is no real boot as such and no rear seats at all.

The rear compartment is filled with red scaffolding (roll cage) and there is a sort of cubbyhole where your groceries usually go with room for two racing helmets. That, then, explain the use of racing bucket seats at the front complete with four-point harness. The car also gets that blue wrap, front and rear spoilers, and an Alcantara steering wheel inside the cabin, but the biggest change is optimized engine software and NAP sport-exhaust with sound control.

In terms of handling tweaks, the 220 horsepower WALDOW’s Renault Clio RS comes with widened front and rear tracks, KW Clubsport suspension with adjustable rebound and compression, aluminum strut brace for the engine compartment and Brembo brakes. WALDOW is also working on new turbochargers and downpipes so that they can justify the 41,000 EUR price tag of this car.
