This is the new Renault Clio RS

Speaking of ‘race', Renault has fitted F1-style front blades that recall Renault successes in Formula One (be that attempting to decapitate Alonso's head or allowing Vettel to raise his finger in victory), while the new diffuser and spoiler generate 80 per cent and 20 per cent extra downforce at the back. There are daytime LED running lights, 17in wheels (18s are an option), a dual exhaust pipe and lots of RS trinketry inside.

It's not going to be a dud, but the auto ‘box has got to be a cause for concern, hasn't it interweb?
