    Thought I would share this picture of quite possibly the maddest car under £30'000, the Renault Clio Sport V6.

    Taken yesterday by my father, before he got go round Silverstone with Patrick Tambay. I really should have taught him how to take videos with my digi-cam.
    Furthermore I wish I could have been there. My father got to drive stuff like the Prodrive prepared STi, Audi S4, VW Phaeton V12 and Formula Ford single-seaters. Unfortunately he forgot to take any more pictures :hs:

    I have nothing better to do this week.

    But, if you so wish I wont bother to disrupt your talk on M3s with images and articles on non BMW products.

    I've got a question about those things. I know its midengined, and from all the pics ive seen, it looks as if the engine is only separated from the inside of the car by a small "hood",if you will. and that you can take it off and drive around with the engine uncovered from the top just like sitting in the cabin. can anyone shed any light on this?

    Yeah thats about right. Basically the engine is mounted inside a box-type structure, which has a removable lid on top of it. So it is possible to drive around with no cover on the engine.

    They had the exact same car from the above photo on Top Gear last night. Jeremy Clarkson was very impressed by it. Sounds amazing as well.
