A Century of Cars: 73. Solido 1993 Renault Clio Williams
In 1993, Renault launched the Clio
Williams as a limited edition of 3,800 cars (1,300 more than they
needed for homologation purposes) with each car bearing a numbered
plaque on the dash. These sold out so quickly that Renault ended up
building 1,600 more
The car was named after the then Renault-powered Formula One team WilliamsF1, though Williams had nothing to do with the design or engineering of this Clio. The modifications to the Clio 16S on which it was based were the work of Renault Sport, Renault's motorsport division. Nevertheless, this car had a Formula One link by being the sport's Safety Car in 1996.
