The Clio V6 Phase 1. 227 bhp (230 PS), 60 mph in 6.2 seconds, top speed 146 mphBuilt to celebrate Tom Walkinshaw's 25 years in motorsport. Chassis number TOM00001Finished in Iliade Blue (one of only 8). Prototype Leather and Alcantara interior (one of only 2)14,067 miles. Serviced in May 2018 with a belt change, a new starter motor, and a fresh MoT The Clio V6 was in many ways the spiritual successor to the mid-engined 5 Turbo - a true motorsport homologation special of the 1980s. Taking inspiration from the 5 Turbo, Renault created an equally wide-hipped, mid-engined, `baby supercar' in the Clio V6. Launched in 2001, the Clio V6 Phase 1 was broadly based on the Renault Clio Mk ll, but the V6 variant actually shares very little with its standard counterpart. Utilising a tweaked version of the proven and unstressed 3.0-litre V6 24V unit from the Laguna saloon in place of the rear seats, the Clio V6 Phase 1 had access to 227 bhp (230 PS) which was enough to propel it from 0-60 mph in just 6.2seconds,with a top speed of 146 mph. Certainly not a car for the faint-hearted, this rear-wheel drive car was built in genuinely limited numbers and driven by true enthusiasts of the day.Most of the engineering work was undertaken by motorsport specialists TWR, who also built these cars at its Swedish Uddevalla factory, producing just 1,513 examples between 2001 and 2003.Walkinshaw, the Scottish-born former racing driver, boss of Benetton, Arrows and Ligier F1 teams, founder of the TWR engineering empire and chairman of Gloucester Rugby Club, was the son of a Scottish market gardener, who became obsessed with cars in childhood and began racing Formula Fords as soon as he could overcome early parental disapproval. He rapidly developed a reputation as a quick and aggressive competitor, both on the track and in business, a reputation he was to keep all his life. Walkinshaw soon discovered a penchant for running racing teams as well as driving cars, and formed his TWR business in the early 1970s,organising BMWand Mazda saloon racing teams, amongst others. His cars became known for robustness, speed, thorough preparation, and for being developed to the very limit of the regulations.This is a Renault Sport Clio Mk1 V6 Prototype model, hand built by Tom Walkinshaw Racing for Renault in Uddevalla, Sweden. This car was built for the chairman himself, Tom Walkinshaw to celebrate his 25 years in motorsport and presented to him as a gift. The Chassis number is TOM00001, a nice gesture. There is a letter on Walkinshaw Performance headed paper dated 7th August 2008 signed by Tom confirming this in the history file. It was sprayed Bleu Iliade and is one of only eight cars in this striking colour. This particular car was fitted with a prototype interior in Alcantara and leather and the only other surviving car in this specification was used to launch the car at the Geneva Motorshow and is now in the Historic Collection owned by Renault.It has been enjoyed by three former keepers, with the currentowner for the lastseven years, and has covered only 14,000 miles from new. There is a comprehensive history file with previous MOTs and the service records show the most recent service was in May 2018 with the belts being changed, a new starter motor, and a fresh MoT. Importantly, the Clio V6 Phase 1 represents the essence of the modern, mid-engined `hot-hatch' from Renault and classic car history often suggests that it's the early cars that end up being the most sought-after. In addition, TOM00001 is a unique example with the cachet of being engineered and built for a legendary motorsport personality. These factors, all combine with this example's originality and low mileage and sound like a recipe for future classic status.

1927 Renault Monastella Cabriolet Reg No: BF 8005 This very unusual and charming six cylinder Renault dates from 1927 and features Renault's delightful 1.5 litre 6 cylinder engine. The car is RHD and has an original coach-built cabriolet body by Mauguy of Paris and features a "Dickie" seat to the rear. It is an older restoration which presents smartly and features a re-upholstered and re-carpeted interior. The car has an unusual but effective and original "excess fuel" cold starting device, whereby upon opening a tap in the passenger foot-well, extra fuel is bled directly into the inlet manifold. It also features 12 volt electrics, coil ignition and factory-fitted mechanical servo braking system to all 4 wheels. It is one of the last Renault models to feature the twin side mounted radiators to the rear of the engine compartment, with the cooling air being drawn by vanes cast into the flywheel - a very effective system which works perfectly. The engine starts easily on the "Dynastart" and soon settles into a very smooth 6 cylinder rhythm, once the oil circulates initially. The Renault drives very nicely and performs surprisingly well in all of its 3 forward gears. This is a charming, "quirky" and very pretty car which is a rare example of an early and extremely rare Monastella Cabriolet. It is not a concourse example, but is smart, reliable and nice to drive, once the unusual gear positions have been remembered. The car spent all it's earlier life in France and was imported in 2016.
