197 Cup

197-cupSince 2002, Clio Cup versions have been the benchmark by which all high-performance hot hatches were measured.

The Clio 197 cup was based on the hugely popular Clio Renaultsport 197 and featured a 20kg weight saving over the regular version, as well as cup chassis as standard.

The Cup chassis gave the car a lowered ride height of 7mm, stiffer springs (27% front, 30% rear), 10% stiffer dampers, and finally red Brembo 4 piston brake callipers.
