PUTTING DOWN POWER

The Renault Sport Spider’s engine was the four-cylinder 1998 cc F7R introduced on the Clio Williams, which produced 150 hp @ 6,000 rpm and topped out at 211 km/h. With a rear-mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout and five-speed mechanical gearbox, the two-seat roadster’s acceleration, braking and roadholding were sensational.
