CW fn2 vs the newest hot hatches

http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carrevi..._shootout.html

What does everyone think?

I think the r26r is some machine to come out with those figures at factory spec, I mean it even comes with semi-slicks.

I would not buy it if I had the money as it would be a nightmare on my daily commute, the drone on the motorway would simply put me off as I cannot drain it as it comes with no audio

It isn't standard, the rollcage and semi slicks are extras and so the standard car would not have won by so much.

Also if you watch the vids you hear the R26 and its squeeky seat and notchy gearbox, it is an awsome track machine, but not a car I'd like to own.

The FN2 sounds the best of the lot too, and a good result against the ST.

Yeah, I've read the article too. No way would I get the Renault, I doubt you'd get more than 10 laps round a track before something broke.

The scaffolding in the back looks bloody daft too.

I'm talking about the r26r and no other renault. Isn't the spec in that review is how it will be sold? No point talking about the standard car as none of the cars in the review are standard but would still have the fn2

The spec in the review differs from standard.

Its 23,815 standard and as tested its 25,245
