Driving slow cars fast is way more fun than driving fast cars slow. But what happens when you take a slow car, like Renault’s amazing little Twingo, and make it really quite fast…
… I guess you’ll have to keep reading!
Anthony’s car, a Renaultsport Twingo 133, is a regular at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. But a winter engine transplant has lifted the performance of this tiny hatchback from Suzuki Swift battler, to something that can go toe-to-toe with Megane’s and Cupras!
How? Clio 200 engine transplant. I’ll let Anthony explain:
After two years of work and development on the car, and for the last time on the Nordschleife (moving to USA…), I managed to complete one full flatout lap with nobody on track!
Tires were good, temperatures ok, weather ok (12°C), no oil or anything on the track.
Enjoy the lap 🙂
