Packed with the 271-horsepower turbo four-cylinder from the Megane RS 275 Trophy-R model, along with key suspension and braking components, the 2016 Renault Clio R.S. 16 Concept celebrates 40 years of the much-loved R.S. model with the appropriate flare of the Clio Cup rear diffuser, a stout aero kit and flares to contain its massive 19-inch wheels. With performance to match the looks, this is a concept car that deserves to be in every Forza Horizon 5 garage, and this week you’re invited to secure yours.
Here’s a look at what’s new in the Winter “Dry” Season available through Thursday, January 26:
- 20 PTS: 2016 Renault Clio R.S. 16 Concept
- 40 PTS: 2005 Ford GT
