yes An amazing car. No mention of the fact you need to look like this to get comfortable in one though:



Which is a shame, as the Trophy and the V6 are very high on my list of favourite cars.
Don't agree that you need to have 10ft arms to get comfy, if you can't get comfy in this you cant get comfy in anything with Recaro's, unless that is what you were hinting at. These seats are the same as the ones in many high performance cars, some Subaru's included.

Agreed though that the car is amazing. I recently bought number 007/500 and love every mile

10/10

I had one for 14 months after my 205 GTi and preceding my current DC2 Integra Type-R. Best hot hatch ever made, second greatest front wheel drive car of all time and for the price, the greatest. Every drive was an opportunity to hunt down some undiscovered B-roads. It was fantastic on track too (unsurprisingly considering it's Clio Cup Race car derived dampers) and Anthony Reid who drove mine around Goodwood commented on what a cracking little car it was.

Only negative was the driving position, which I didn't have a problem with (most cars are an ergonomic disaster when you're 6'7" ) until I drove my current car and realised the importance of feeling at the heart of the action, rather than 12 inches above it!

If you're considering buying one, try this site, I bought mine from this guy and he's the Clio Trophy 'guru': www.allvehicles.co.uk
And www.cliotrophy.co.uk for all the info you could ever need on this fantastic car.

A brilliant car. One of a kind that'll never be repeated. Hats off to Renaultsport for making it happen.

They're starting to make a lot of sense as a bargain hot hatch, you can get them for 5 or 6 grand these days. Another grand will get you 200bhp. Yes please.
