This competition will take the form of a "green box" guessing game at the Renault stand where their potent newly revised mid-engined Clio V6 hatch will be one of the French Manufacturer's vehicles on display.

This exciting new Renault Clio V6, whilst keeping the essential elements of its predecessor has a number of refinements that make it a distinctive and hot hatch.

The Clio V6 was launched just a few days ago and the mid-engined layout makes it a real enthusiast's car. One that demands attention and skill from its driver as its performance is the best you will find off a race track.

The muscular top of the range Clio that sports a new front bumper, grille and headlights is powered by an improved version of the Laguna L7X motor.

This engine peaks at 187 kW at 7 150 r/min with an amazing torque of 300 Nm at 4 650 r/min. The torque curve is very flat, giving the motor great flexibility from only 2500rpm right the way tot he red line at 7 200.

Well worth a good look and don't forget to enter the Renault Guessing Game - it has all to do with the "green box" on their stand!
