    Not even Abarth. As far as I remember they were around 1170 kg in Barum 2007 when 1100 kg was still allowed (I know that at some other events it's possible to run lighter sumpguard etc. but the difference was still too big).

    Sounds terrible but looks faster than the current R2. Anyway, itíll be a crime if Peugeot doesnít release a R5 version; itíd look smashing!

    Btw, it went under the forum radar but Renault is also sorting R1/R2 versions of the new Clio 1.3T; apparently the R1 model (180cv) will be initially released to be used in one make series but a R2 kit could soon follow. Public presentation during Rallye Couer de France (28/30 Sep).

    @RallyPower, from what I heard from someone who knows his business around Renault Sport, the Clio will be again a R3T car.

    I've heard it'll be a 1.3T R2C.

    That would be a surprise. The new R1/R2/R3 rules have turned R1 into a sort of R2- and R3 into a R2+, as they all can now get a 5 speed sequential gearbox and a turbo engine up to 1333cc (with tuning levels upgraded according to the class). The new Clio has 1323cc and Renault Sport main aim is to provide an economical car for their rally cups; it’d be strange if they choose to develop it under the more expensive R3 class.

    Anyway, from what I’ve heard (and mostly read) RS will start with a cheaper Clio (limited to 180cv) for rally cups use (probably a R1 or a ligth spec R2) and later provide a Kit (full R2 or, less likely, R3) for the drivers/teams eager to figth for 2wd wins. At the end of the month we’ll know better.
