Renault to Sell 1,000 Clios at 1990s Prices

Celebrating the model’s 20th anniversary, Renault’s British division decided to sell 1,000 Clio Extreme 1.2 models for the same price as a Clio RL 1.2 from the early 90s, only between May 21-23, 2010. This means that taking the current version’s price down to £7,450, it will take £3,590 off the car’s current £11,040 list price.

However, the offers from Renault do not stop here. Until late June, Renault UK dealers will give customers the chance to win a Clio 20th Special Edition, worth almost £15,000, simply by entering a prize draw after taking a test drive in a New Clio.

Priced from £14,950, the Clio 20th Special Edition has 20th edition badging, newly-styled front bumpers, sporty 16” Lyria alloy wheels, sport upholstery, extra tinted rear windows, integrated Carminat TomTom satellite navigation, climate control, cruise control with speed limiter, 4 x 20W radio CD sound system with MP3 connectivity and Bluetooth hands free connectivity.

There are also 20 romantic weekends at a Mr & Mrs Smith hotel in Paris to be won. Moreover, the first thousand customers that go for a spin, will get a copy of the Mr & Mrs Smith French Hotel Collection guide, worth £20.

Launched in 1990, the Clio was the star of one of the most successful UK car advertising campaigns ever, featuring Nicole and Papa, French actress Helene Mathieu and Thierry Henry. Since then, there have been more than 10 million units sold worldwide and 1 million in the UK only. The advertising campaign’s catch phrase also changed over the years, from ‘Va Va Voom’ to ‘Size Matters’.
