Clio 172 Renaultsport
A truly, truly remarkable Renault Clio 172 Renaultsport. Having covered just 15,644 miles since new, this exceptional example has been pampered and cherished from day one and it has never, ever been used in wet weather.
We don't think that this car can be compared with any other that is currently on the open market, it really is immaculate throughout and as close to a new one as you will find. Up until October of this year, it has remained with its one and only private owner since being collected new.
The Iceberg Silver metallic paintwork across all original and factory fit panels is flawless. It is without marks or scratches and is free from swirls and boasts a finish that is only obtained through careful hand washing and regular application of high end polishes. A small and completely insignificant light graze to the nearside door mirror casing is all that you will find and it has been left to ensure complete originality. The bumper corners, head lights, indicator lenses, tinted glass, window rubbers and weather strips are as new. In terms of condition, this really is a special little car and it will be virtually impossible to replicate. The underside is superb and untouched and it is very evident that dry weather use has been very much order of the day. Supplying dealer number plates front and rear are still fitted and free from any water marks or lifting.
Internally the half leather/alcantara sports seats are completely without marks and still retain their fullness. The Renaultsport logo is perfect. The carpet has been protected since new by a full set of genuine carpet mats and then an additional set of Renault Clio mats have been on top. The whole interior is like brand new and it still smells exactly like new. The vulnerable rubber thumb recesses on the steering wheel are unmarked and as new. The door cards, steering wheel, gear knob, fascia and head lining are absolutely perfect. The chrome Renaultsport sill kick plates are exceptional and without a single mark or scuff. The dashboard is free from any warning lights and everything is in perfect working order. The boot area seems to be unused. The whole interior really is exceptional.
The engine bay presents in a beautiful and un-messed with state. Nothing has oxidised or deteriorated...it is just lovely.
The correct factory fit alloy wheels are in a remarkable and un-refurbished condition and they have been kept spotlessly clean...even the rear of the alloys have been kept clean and free from dirt. They are shod with the correct Continental Sport tyres.
As you would expect, this car drives exceptionally well and is like a brand new one. The meticulous care has been carried through to the maintenance schedule and it has always been serviced at the correct intervals and always at the Renault main agents. Every receipt and invoice has been kept and filed throughout its life. The timing belt has been changed in 2009 and again in 2014 at 14,411 miles.
The original hand book wallet is complete and the history file contains all the servicing and maintenance invoices, all old mot certificates, various sorn notifications, 2 original keys which look like new, current V5 registration document and fully stamped service booklet.
This car really is as good as they come and the photos do not do it justice. It will be as good as you will ever find.
