WTF is the point of an RS Modus!<p>Its a cude 'n' cuddly mini-MPV ffs.<p>IMO this could quite easily be someone just messing around with Photoshop.

Pointless if you ask me, unless it was testing mechanicals for next Clio V6, but then why use a mule when you can use the actual Clio prototypes.

the red car next to it looked like a scenic only it had a different/renaultsport-style grille. maybe it was a megane RS, but there was one of those parked next to it and it was lower to the ground <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0">

Weird car to produce a sport version for... but who knows - this may start a trend!

This pic comes from planete-Renault.<p>There won't be a Modus RS, according to people close to the project, this is actually a test mule for the coming Clio 3 RS, who will share the same plateform.

Cool, a quick Clio with handling like the 182 and a modern interior would be great!

its getting quite hard to make any renaults sporty with the styling, the megane looks good in RS trim tho! to be honest I think the above looks like a photoshop... look at the holes for exhausts... where are the exhausts... if hidden inside... it will melt the bumper plastic so you cudnt have that, and if it was a proper mule, they wudnt add sporting touches because they dont want you to know what they're testing!

I talked to the guy who took the shot on another forum, this is not a shop.<br>Bumpers are standard, with just holes for the exhaust and fenders.

1.The exhausts are not placed in a symetrical way below the place for number plate<br>2.partially blurry pic<br>3.18"front wheels/17"back?<br>I'm still pretty sure this is a shop. The car also seems to be unusually wide.<TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>J!MMY</b> &raquo;</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Bern already told us above that this pic comes from planete-Renault.<p>BTW "Modus goes wild"<p> </TD></TR></TABLE>

this isnt a chop, it has been discussed and proven at another forum
