Bag a Renault Clio at 1990s prices
Renault is offering the chance for car-buyers to snap up a Clio at 1990s prices to celebrate the supermini's 20th anniversary.
Between 21-23 May 2010, 1,000 Clio 1.2 Extremes will be available for £7,450 - the price of a Clio RL 1.2 from the 1990s - a cool £3,590 off of the car’s current £11,040 list price.
The French manufacturer will also offer a range of Clio test drive prizes to be won, including a Clio 20th Special Edition worth £14,950.
Competitions to win romantic breaks in Paris and the Mr & Mrs Smith French Hotel Collection guide will also be included in the offer.
Launched in 1990, the Clio famously featured in the Nicole and Papa series of adverts, with Thierry Henry later building on the Va-Va-Voom phrase’s cult status in a series of ads between 2001 to 2004.
Renault says it has sold 10 million Clios worldwide, and one million in the UK, picking up two European Car of the Year twice; in 1991 and 2006.
The current Clio is the third incarnation of the perennial French supermini.
A Renault 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. It is available to buy from £14,950.
