Renaultsport
About the best hot hatch around blending the best of modern engineering with
an old school fun factor. The sound of the vehicle is fantastic, the pick
up of the air intake as it whistles and rams air is unforgettable. The handling
is nothing short of amazing as it is completely balanced and even with perfect
weighting from hubs to wheels and ride, and of course very entertaining when it
comes to the twisty stuff.
The upgraded cams add the audio appeal that every driver is looking for from a
naturally aspirated high revving engine, and the exhaust spits flames cracking
and popping on the over run.
Renault honed and shaved this car, optimising the steering and sharpening the
handling to the extent that the 182 is capable of notching off the sprint to
60mph in a claimed 6.7 seconds whilst maintaining a 35 MPG average, (and
this car is a good bit quicker).

182 With Both Cup Packs
A high spec example with side airbags, xenon headlamps, cruise control, headlamp
wash, automatic headlamps adjustment, climate control air con, automatic wipers
and heat reflecting windscreen.
The Cup further benefits from a lowered ride height, stiffer springs and
dampers and strengthened wheel hub carriers that can handle being bounced over
kerbs on a track day not that this one has seen a track. The steering geometry
offers a very sharp turn-in, the steering feels livewire, the gumball Michelin
tyres transmitting the slightest response from the wheel to the road. Performance
from the 182bhp engine is urgent, and as a point-to-point car it is no slower
than a Clio V6.

Condition
To be found in remarkable stunning virtually unmarked original condition in
and out and has been a cared for car with a massive service record the likes
of which is usually seen in expensive higher value vehicles. Nothing to
comment on at all. The alloys are perfect and the panel fit is too, it has
an impressive depth and shine, retaining a beautiful finish as the images
suggest.

Service History - 132000 Miles
Together with the original service book there is a file crammed with receipts
dating back many years. Every mot from new. This has been enthusiast owned
with routine spending, I have owned a few of these models and this is a top
example. In addition, the car comes with an array of spare parts inclusive
of a spare set of road springs. Too much history to list, please ask.

Essential Information
- New mot to accompany
- Hpi clear in all respects
- All owner’s manuals in wallet
- Parcel shelf cover

The vehicle is a must see, a rare opportunity. Setting this model firmly apart is the
fantastic specification and condition.
