Color me Matte: New Renault Clio RS 200 “Ange & Démon” Edition to be Produced in…666 Units

Renault is playing the good versus evil card with its new limited run Clio Renaultsport 200 “Ange & Démon”, which is French for Angels and Demons. Deviously, the bespoke version of the Clio RS will be produced in a…fiendish 666 units worldwide - as most of you already know, that's the number of the Beast in the Book of Revelation.

Buyers can choose among three different matte shades, including Toro Red, Givre Nacré and Hologramme Grey, all of which feature a gloss black finish for the roof, upper tailgate, rear spoiler, rear diffuser, F1-style blade in the front bumper, the door handles and exterior door mirrors.
The bespoke Clio RS also gets tinted rear side and tailgate windows, gloss black 18-inch Interlagos wheels from the late Mégane R26.R shod in Bridgestone RE50A tires, and red Brembo brake callipers.

On board, the “Ange & Démon” is distinguished by the leather-upholstered Recaro bucket seats, the zinc grey finish on the center console and fascia inserts, plus the white rev counter, Renaultsport carpet mats and a numbered plate under the hand brake.
There are no mechanical changes with the “Ange & Démon” being powered by the standard Clio RS' 200-horsepower 2.0-liter engine.

Strangely enough, the same model will be sold in the UK under a different name, and without the “Ange & Démon” decal on the left hand side of the rear quarter window pillar. The British version is called the Clio RS Raider of the lost Ark and will be available in a limited run of 50 examples.
Sales in France start today while UK buyers will have to wait until the end of October.
