Waldow Performance in Rheinbach has turned its attentions to the Renault Clio. They put considerable efforts into building up the engine - new water cooling with intercooler, modified turbocharger, sport cat and NAP sport exhaust, optimized software - but no information as to what the final output is.
For the body, modifications weremade to both the front and rear spoiler, and the whole was wrapped in Smurf Blue vinyl.
For racing use, a roll cage has been installed, along with a KW Clubsport suspension with adjustable rebound. The track was widened both front and rear, and an aluminum strut brace for the engine compartment provides additional stiffness. Brembo brakes have new racing brake pads and steel flex lines.

Renault, Dacia and Peugeot. Premium service and the finest expertise around four-wheeled mobility based on the concept “Mobile with sense and soul” are just some of the teams successful accomplishments. In addition, the WALDOW Performance Center has been established to develop individual conversion projects or complete vehicles in order to achieve a balanced compromise between everyday usage and exciting experience on the racing circuits.
Doubtless the Renault Clio generation IV is a fun-loving ride. The special edition R.S. EDC Trophy comes with 220 HP (=162kW) originally and 280 ft-lbs torque with Overboost. Prior to the Clio's first public presentation, the WALDOW Performance team put great effort into the extensions and conversions. The front spoiler and the Cup rear spoiler were modified, followed by an eye-catching Smurf-Blue vinyl wrap.
Sporty 17” alloy wheels with semi-slicks and a KW-Clubsport-suspension which includes adjustable rebound and compression stage providing outstanding grip and road feel. The track widening for the front- and rear-axle implements an even more spectacular look and the aluminum strut brace for the engine compartment promises improved drive characteristics. The upgrade-kit by Brembo with steel flex lines and racing brake pads supplies optimal deceleration. As an additional protection feature a Club safety bar has been mounted inside. Even the interior is vastly improved: Recaro-Pole-Position-racing-bucket-seats, 4-point-seat-belts from Schroth and a Alcantara steering wheel. Luckily every conversions received the unlimited approval by the TÜV.
WALDOW Performance Center carried out a remarkable adjustment to the sound and engine power as well. A water-cooling system joined the intercooler to keep up the thermal stability during slip stream rides. Optimized software and a NAP sport-exhaust with sound control contributes greater power increase. (The valve exhaust comes with a General Operating License/GOL) An altered turbocharger plus a downpipe and a sport-catalytic are currently being tested to gain more output boost. In order to achieve high quality standards and endurance, single components as well as complete vehicles have been tested on countless laps on the challenging racetrack, the Nürburgring.
The original price for the test vehicle amounts to 41.000,00 €. Inquiries for conversion estimates or complete vehicles can be found at the WALDOW Performance Center.
