Tracktard Cool

Renault Megane R26.R
A new trend, factory stripped cars. Fiat has the 500 Abarth Assetto Corse, now something much juicer, a version of the Megane F1 that is a full 123kg/271lbs lighter and comes with a real limited slip differential and titanium exhaust.

450 of these little track toys will go on sale in the fall (none for us...). Their should embarrass quite a few fancy cars at the Nürburgring next year. As it is it set the Nürburgring lap record for front wheel drive cars with 8:17! For reference, that is faster than an e46 M3, an Exige S or a Cayman S...

More pictures and video after the jump...


  1. Well it's certainly bloody quick in the vid. Sounds like it's eating it's tyres !

    Shame they didn't chuck the engine behind the driver while they were at it : )

  2. I always liked the idea of the Clio Sport v6 but I never heard anyone who has driven one be enthusiastic...

  3. One of the worst-sounding cars I've ever heard, at least on video.
