Welcome to the forum and glad you are ok. Not heard of this on a Clio, but I'm guessing it could be wiring, fuel leak or the dreaded turbo . Where there any warning signs, dip in revs, lights on dash. Had it once on a meastro, fuel pipe split and fuel pooled on the exhuast manifold, i saw the revs fluctuate and as i pulled over heard a pop, looked under the front saw the flames ans baled out. Engineers report was inconclusive as you would expect, but I had just had a breakdown service out to a leak on a fuel hose 2 days before so I think that was the cause.
Currently in chris m's garage:
2000 Scenic 2.0 16v Monaco, BMW 3 Series, Pug 206
