Clio V6 fetches £90,000
The Renault Clio V6’s current rise in value is underlined by a Phase 2 model setting a new world record sale price of £90,000.
The 2004 car finished in Acid Yellow made the record price on the Collecting Cars auction website, beating the previous record for this specific model of £73,000. The same auction firm also sold a Phase 1 Clio V6 for £62,540 recently.
Provenance helped this car achieve the high price. It was used as the safety car for the 2005 Clio Cup series and was driven by Patrick Tambay at the 2005 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The car was also voted the best Clio V6 at the 2016 Origine RS meeting.
Edward Lovett, founder of Collecting Cars, said: ‘Low-mileage examples of the Clio V6 are becoming harder to find, and this particular car represented a likely unrepeatable combination of exceptionally rare colour, full leather interior, and excellent history. It would be fair to say this result surpassed anyone’s expectations, which goes to show the power of auctions for collectible cars, because there is no limit to how high the bidding can go.’
