    New daily driver

    After the usual 3 years the Focus ST had to go - here is my new daily driver:

    Renault Sport Clio 200 RS with cup suspension and  Recaro Bucket seats

    Driving report will follow soon - my wife hates it already, because of the hard suspension... Smiley

    Re: New daily driver

    Sigh....

    We don't get fun small cars like this over in America.

    If anything, we typically get a faux version - just a body kit kit, nice wheels, and some negliable HP bump.

    It's as if they want us to only every aspire to a Camaro or Challenger.


    Re: New daily driver

    ^ Yes, the same geniuses that gave us the PT Cruiser are the same folks who don't think sport hatches will sell in NA.

    Love your new car; it would be a great DD.


    Re: New daily driver

    I absolutely love these cars!! Congrats!

    Re: New daily driver

    Congrats on your new toy. Was there any other option on the table?

    This car reminds me my beloved 205 GTI 1.9 back in 1988, what a great car it was, this RS has the same "spirit", there´s not many nowadays.

    @ all: thanks for your nice words - I ´m surprised that so many of you like that little car...Smiley

    @ J. Seven: The options were:

    Ford Focus RS - sold out in Germany

    Ford Focus ST 2012 - comes too late for me

    VW Golf GTi VI - imo a little bit too boring after the test drive

    VW Golf R - too expensive for my dd

    So I took the Clio RS -  in 1988 we had a Renault R5 with 100 HP - this car was so much fun, I said to myself someday I want one of these crazy Renault Sport Cars...Smiley

    It´s tough not rev over 4.500 rpm for the first 1.000 Km, but just 500 more Km and the fun will start.

    After the Mini Cooper S (supercharged) and the Focus ST (Turbo) the first drive was a shock, because the cars feels far from strong at low rpms - I thinks I have to adjust again my driving style...pedal to the metal!Smiley

    But the handling is really a dream, the cars feels so light an agile - the steering is perfect.

    Hard braking from high speeds needs more concentration because of the short wheel base.

    More pics from today, taken at the NorisRing/Nürnberg to follow.

    The great Recaro bucket seats - expensive, but worth the money

    Re: New daily driver

    I didn't know this car existed. It seems to be a mini-bullet.

    Enjoy!

    BTW, Renault Sport with all this involvement and success in F1 should have something more to show in their road car range, than this small Sport Clio (and perhaps a Megane)? Missing the opportunity, I think.
