Renault Clio Trophy cleans up at the Nürburgring


EARLIER this year we travelled to France to sample the new Renault Clio Sport in 220 Trophy guise. We were amazed at how much the car had been tweaked and improved upon. It felt like a proper hot hatch should.

Its recent conquest around the famous Green Hell proves that it is as fast as it feels when it set a lap time of eight minutes 23 seconds, which is considerably faster than the regular Cup model of the car and quicker than its key rivals.

To put the lap time into perspective, we have the top ten fastest production car lap times at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, below:

10. Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06 Seven minutes, 22 seconds
9. Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1 Seven minutes, 19 seconds
8. Donkervoort D8 RS Seven minutes, 14.8 seconds
7. Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package Seven minutes, 14.6 seconds
6. Viper ACR Seven minutes, 12 seconds
5. Gumpert Apollo Sport Seven minutes, 11 seconds
4. Nissan GT-R Nismo  Seven minutes, 8.0 seconds
3. Aventador SV Six minutes, 59.7 seconds
2. Porsche 918 Spyder (Weissach Pack) Six minutes, 57 seconds
1. Radical SR8 LM Six minutes, 48 seconds
