Thanks for looking at this listing for our 1991 Clio 16v.
Note, correct VIN: VF1C57D0506871709
Originally purchased from Spain where the Clio spent most of its years as a vacation car, parked in a barn belonging to an English family.
Then being imported to England by myself in 2015 and earlier this year finally to Maryland.
This immaculate example of arguably one of the greatest Hot Hatches of the 90’s era, is highly sought after in Europe and virtually Unheard of in the USA!
The original color 449 Sports blue with gold Speedline Williams 15” wheels and black cloth RenaultSport design interior trim, factory sunroof delete and LHD makes this an extremely rare piece of French automobilia.
Unmodified from standard, completely rust free and with just 84k original Miles, it has only benefitted from a blue Williams gear knob, the Williams Speedline wheels and a full repaint to a very high standard in the original blue, due to sun fading & laquer peel. Servicing is up to date, new fuel pump, (fuel gauge has stopped working due to faulty sender unit, a replacement part will be supplied with the car, timing belt changed, new plugs, wires & sensors changed and last inspection done in May 2018.
The car was driven to South of France from England & back last year and didn’t miss a beat. It is currently still UK inspected (MOT test) until May next year, so will pass any US state inspection and is ready to drive.
This is the first gen Clio 16v which uses the Fantastic F7P 1.8 16 valve engine & 5 speed manual gearbox.
A popular track & rally car in its day with its rivals being the Peugeot 205 GTi and Golf GTi 16v.
Many videos of the famous Jean Ragnotti piloting his Clio in rally stages can be found on YouTube, his style with this car is particularly unique to racing during the 80’s/90’s.
The Clio 16v was so successful it is still one of the best selling hot hatches today in France and mostly in the UK.
We at EuroCarSource are seasoned importers of rare & historic cars from Europe and also have great links to parts suppliers.
This Renault has been my personal Saturday car since 2015 and as far as I’m aware it is the only one ever to have been brought the US, making it a real find for a French auto collector or enthusiast.
The car will come with cleared importation docs and a clean Maryland title for the buyer to register in their name & state.
