2014 Renault Clio Cup gets detailed

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).
