Re: My Renault Clio has no red zone in the RPM counter.

The Owners Handbook should have stats for peak torque and HP at the defined rev limits.
Unless you are using the car on a race circuit and are willing to rebuild the engine every few weeks I would not attempt to see if my engine will match those maximum revs. In normal spirited driving I would probably stay within 85% of the max revs at most.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
