The new Clio Cup is a 220bhp homologation special designed to compete in the same track events as the model it replaces. The new Cup benefits from all of the assets of the standard car, but also includes new chassis upgrades.
With the help of a reinforced, welded roll cage, the Clio Cup provides significant increases in both safety and rigidity.
Power comes from a 1.6-litre, turbocharged direct-injection engine, producing 220bhp.
A range of gearbox options are available, including the standard fit six-speed sequential unit, which enables shift times of just 100 milliseconds.
Drivers can also choose from either steering wheel-mounted shift paddles or a back-to-basics manual. Torque has also been given a small boost, registering 199lb ft. The Cup is also fitted with more trick dynamics, such as the F1-aping front blade.
Exterior changes include front and rear spoilers, LED lights and twin exhaust pipes.
