Renault Australia is celebrating Valentine’s Day with the release of 40 limited edition Clio R.S. Angel & Demon hot hatches.

The naughty but nice package takes the racy Clio R.S. 200 Cup to a new level with interior, exterior and performance enhancements.

Outside, the special editions are available in two new matt colours: the devilish Toro Red and the angelic Hologramme Grey. Contrasting with the paintwork is high-gloss black across the roof, rear spoiler, upper tailgate, rear diffuser, door, handles, mirror caps, and F1-style front bumper blades.

The gloss black treatment extends to the 18-inch Interlagos alloys, which are shod with Bridgestone RE050A tyres – the same rubber used by the Megane R.S. Trophy in its record Nurburgring run. Blood red Brembo brake callipers glow menacingly from behind the wheels.

An optional Angels & Demons tattoo can be affixed to left-hand rear-quarter window pillar to further distinguish the special edition model.

Inside, the cars get leather-upholstered Recaro bucket seats, red steering wheel stitching, metal gear knob, climate control, R.S. Monitor telemetry system, hands-free key card, multimedia connection box, Bluetooth, floor mats and an individually numbered plaque.

Output from the 2.0-litre Renault Sport engine remains unchanged at 147kW of power and 215Nm of torque.

In truly satanic style, the Angel & Demon series has been limited to just 666 vehicles and 15 markets worldwide.

The 40 cars destined for Australia are priced from $39,990 before on-road costs, with deliveries set to start in March.
