To a possible new owner,

Final edition of what has been regarded as one of the best hot hatches of all time and won Evo Magazine’s People’s Performance Car of the Year in 2005 along with also being a car that resulted in Harry Metcalfe (founder and former editorial director of Evo Magazine) buying the exact one he drove for an article, one of my favourite stories from the Evo diaries.

Just 500 right hand drive models were produced of this limited edition with 50 left hand drive examples heading to Switzerland. This representation of the 500 is number 33 and is proudly displayed as intended on a numbered plaque located on the base of the driver seat along with matching key rings that I had specially made.

Supplied at new by Gordon Lamb Renault with a total of four private registered keepers and I have had ownership since 2017, my fourth 182 Trophy to date and this one has covered 36,900 miles since new.

Promptly available for a new owner with a full set of keys present, alongside a thick black folder backing all of the above. I really cannot fault this one especially when you consider it is a Renault hot hatch and has ventured our rough British roads for fourteen years now.

Anyone who knows the background on these will know that the bonnet was a recall and this was completed and is recorded within the history file from Renault. The steering wheels were awfully manufactured and has led to many people replacing them but if you can gather from the images, you will come across a lot worse and it is not worth changing yet from an originally point of view. As always with my cars, not a great deal of miles has been covered by me but certainly enough to stand by the car. Starting, pulling away and driving with no issues at all with the clutch and gearbox working perfectly in conjunction with that 1998cc 4 cylinder 16 valve engine.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Johnny Stokes
