This is my 2009 Renault sport Clio 200 Cup. My absolute pride and joy, the shell has covered 100k miles and the new engine has just ticked over 65k. I bought the car back in November 2014, my second (and current) car.

As most people claim when they get an untouched car, I was adamant I wasn’t going to modify it.. that didn’t last long! Before dropping in a Megane R26 Engine and complete running gear, I did the standard mods (exhaust, induction kit, remap) but I wanted more power!

So I decided to turbo it!
She now runs over 300bhp and 300lbft torque, handles like a go kart and upset some bigger powered cars!
