This is my euro-er than you car. It shouldn't be but it's a blast to drive. Specs:

-2001 Renaulsport Clio 172 Phase 1, built at Renaultsport in Dieppe (used to be the Alpine factory)
-Black (greyish brown IRL most days)
-Stock everything
-Weighs 2281lbs (1035kgs)

Changed over your standard econo shitbox clio:

-Engine: 1998cc F4R, with variable valve timing, producing 172hp, limited to pretty much 7000rpm. I don't exactly remember the torque but the car does not weigh enough to need torque
-Stiffer suspension
-Big bumper up front, bigger arches
-Sporty seats
-Rear Torsion Beam suspension assuring lifting wheels and lift-off oversteer.

It gets 35-40 mpg, which is great. Also since all big cars here are 520ds or equivalent Audis/MBs, it will take care of those at the same time. I get the summer tires put back on next week, that will be a thing to celebrate since the winter set is nothing to write home about regarding grip or feedback levels. The car is also not pristine, which takes away any reservations about really using it all day every day.
