We love fast Renaults at Modern Classics magazine – here are a few of our favourites.
1. Renault Clio V6
Featured in issue 2 of Modern Classics magazine
Renault has form for sticking a big mid-mounted engine into a hatchback shell, but the Clio V6 really does pull on the heartstrings. It’s mad, loud and fast – which is why we love it. It’s also very rare – find out more by picking up issue 2 via the button below.
2. Renault 5 Turbo
Featured in Issue 3 of Modern Classics magazine
The Peugeot 205 GTI and VW Golf GTI may be the default hot hatchback choice these days but that does the riotous Turbo a disservice. More than 10,000 people stumped up the cash for this turbocharged pocket rocket – find out why it’s so compelling by picking up issue 3, available to buy via the button below.
3. Renault Megane 16v
Featured in Issue 6 of Modern Classics magazine
With 16v thrust and curvy looks, the Megane delivered a lot of style and substance. It’s a combination that won hearts back in the 1990s, but how does it stack up against its period rivals today? Find out in issue 6, available to buy via the button below.
4. Renault Avantime
Featured in Issue 10 of Modern Classics magazine
A weird mixture of ideas or a brave concept car too ahead of its time? The Renault Avantime combined luxury barge with SUV packaging years before the Bentley Bentayga, and is much more tasteful. Find out why you should save one of the few remaining by picking up issue 10 here.
5. Renault Clio Williams
Featured in issue 12 of Modern Classics
The Renault Clio Williams was a sensational shot in the arm for hot hatch loves in the 1990s, and it still stacks up as a superb drive today. Find out why we’re tipping it as a Clever Money Car by picking up a copy of issue 12 here.
