Roughly between 4 - 7k rpm!
At least you know you'll be able to rape most cars down any B road. Couple of engine tweaks and you'll be well on your way to keeping up with the best on straight lines!

My mate has a 172cup and its almost impossible to get past him unless there is a massive straight. They suprise most people.

Good purchase, well done!

Nice motor, does it have the nice leather buckets seats as well? Theres allot of car there for your money. Not sure what they strip out the trophy but i know the normal ones had more kit than the LCR!

Shift light, leathers etc

Superb car! I would love a Trophy, but it's a bit too small for a family :-(
There's not much that will stay with you down a twisty road.

I think people look at how old clios used to be. I had my old phase 2 +2 for 2 years and i never had a single issue with build quality, in fact ive had more issues with the leon than the clio, but the suspension was alot more soft on the clio etc.

You will have to get some pics up when you pick her up

Possibly because within the next two minutes, every second house in europe will have an EVO or Sooob in the drive! Those who do not wear burbury hats will opt for the BMW 3 series, tube of super glue and a haynes manual instead!


LOL

An Evo/Scooby is on the list, but it will be a IX FQ340 or Litchfield Type 22....

No matter what you read, the Clio Trophy is universally accepted as one of the best cars you can buy, in terms of sheer dynamic performance....

"The most fun you can have on three wheels..." - evo
"World's greatest hot hatch" - Autocar
"Best hot hatch ever" - evo
"It seems to go round any corner at whatever speed takes your fancy." - Clarkson (http://driving.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,12529-1857815_1,00.html)

Combine that with the p/x I got and you can't really go wrong!!! :D

They were £15,500 new and my one was registered on September 22nd 2005, so I don't think £13,000 is too bad, especially as I got £14,000 for my LCR!!! :D
