2014 Renault Clio Cup - 220HP and 270Nm
Renault has announced the new 2014 Renault Clio Cup, which benefits from all the assets of the Clio Renaultsport 200 Turbo EDC.
The 2014 Clio Cup comes with a welded roll cage, monocoque chassis, 17" rims fitted with low-profile performance tires. The front suspension includes Pseudo-McPherson one-way adjustable ZF Race Engineering shock absorber and the rear - One-way adjustable ZF Race Engineering shock absorber with programmed flexible axle/torsion beam.
The power is coming from a 220HP (162 kW) at 6,000 RPM and 270Nm (200 lb-ft) at 2,500 RPM. The engine is connected to a Sadev ST82-17 6-speed sequential gearbox sending the power to a Sadev 23/90 self-locking limited-slip differential at the front wheels.
The curb weight is just 1065 kg (2350 lbs).
The new Clio Cup is manufactured and assembled at the Alpine factory in Dieppe. With its bench-tested and race-sealed engine, the car is delivered ready-to-race.
