Renault has released new details about the 2014 Clio Cup.
Based on the Clio R.S. 200 EDC, the Cup features an aerodynamic body kit with an aggressive front fascia, a roof-mounted scoop and a tailgate-mounted spoiler. There's also a rear diffuser, a dual exhaust system and 17-inch Speedline Corse wheels which can be fitted with either Dunlop or Michelin tires.
The race-spec interior has a digital dashboard, a multi-function steering wheel and a Sabelt racing seat with a six-point harness and a HANS compatible headrest. There's also a welded roll cage that is significantly stronger than bolt-in units.
Motivation is provided by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 220 HP (161 kW) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a Sadev six-speed sequential transmission which can change gears in just 100 milliseconds.
Other highlights include a Cosworth SQ7DI ECU, ZF Race Engineering adjustable shock absorbers and a high-performance braking system with Brembo calipers and ventilated front discs that measure 320mm.
The FIA-approved turn-key racer will go on sale in September and pricing starts at €37,800 (excluding VAT).
