Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

just a short introduction from my side. I'm Martin aka Marsch from Berlin, Germany. I own a C3RS "Sport Auto Edition" since may last year already. I'm always looking around to find like-minded people, see what's up in other communities, share infos or just chat with each other.

Here's a photo of my C L I O.

I'll post some more infos and photos about it in a separate thread.

Wow, for a minute there I thought this was an automatic gearbox version, but no:https://carbuzz.com/news/99-units-planned-for-the-renault-clio-rs-sport-auto-edition

Martin, we have the same car but it's called the Angel and Demon. We also got a matte red version here.

In the UK it's known as the Silverstone GP edition.

Welcome to the forum. :biggrin:

I know about the "Ange & Démon" edition and basically all the other ones existing as I've done some extensive research on this topic. My edition was only available in "Stealth Grey" and always came fully equipped (except for parking sensors/assistance).

The UK has a special edition called "Raider" which basically is the same like an "A&D" or "SAE". It's limited to 50 cars and was also only available in grey or red (in Europe you could also get white "A&D"). The "Silverstone GP" edition is something different as it's painted in Mercury Silver (Gris Platine - TE D69).

Thanks a lot!

I'm loving Marsc!

18 posts and 6 likes (so far) on his first day here!

Now that's gonna take some beating :laugh:

But no "homo", please! :wink:

Btw, it's actually "Marsch".  I've just messed up at the registration but the admins were so kind to fix this.

Marsch, I'd like to hear about the RS scene in Germany. Are there many RS fans there?

I would have thought that Renault would be squeezed out by the big boys like BMW, AUDI, VW, Porsche.

With all the German built options you could have bought, why the Clio?

It's a relatively small scene compared to others like VW for example but there are some RS enthusiasts around. Just take a look at videos from the Nordschleife and you'll see quite a lot of C3RS, C4RS and M3RS around. Meggis and C3RS are actually more rare than C4RS as these sold like sliced bread and you'll see quite a lot of them at least where I live. Thanks to absolutely ridiculous price reductions but most of their drivers aren't what I'd class as real RS fans.

If you haven't seen the "RS Days 2017" thread already then take a look at the following link. Gives a good impression of our scene I'd say.

You also shouldn't forget that cars of German manufacturers are often a lot more expensive than what Renault (Sport) has to offer. Renault has a little over 4% market share here and you'll see quite a lot of their lower budget cars on the streets. I'm always amazed how many it actually are when I drive around.

The answer to your last question is easy. I'm actually coming from a Mercedes-Benz family but my first car was a Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6 and that's what got me hooked on French cars. Unfortunately Peugeot doesn't builts anything that interests me anymore. I've checked out various types of 308 GTi and even an RCZ but I'm not a fan of turbos and especially not the new(er) downsized ones. That's why I was explicitly looking for a C3RS. I didn't planned to get a special edition at first and my first choice actually was an Albi Blue Cup but I was only second on the list and the first guy bought it. Then this car here came up and I thought f* it, checked it out and took it home.

Infact you become more confused with every new detail you find out. Renault really has a talent to throw so many different versions out or setups together that you can easily loose track. Often a version isn't available in one colour in country X or version Y has a different gear knob in country X than it has in country Z and so on and so forth. Makes you want to tear out your hair sometimes. 😄

I wish there would be a website summerizing all produced RS versions in detail. Something like the old Roadcars Heritage site from RS UK but with global numbers of course.

Agreed 100%.
