Renault Clio Trophy video diary

evo boss Harry Metcalfe owns a number of cars. Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Range Rover are just some of the names on the keyrings hung on his wall. So where does an eight-year-old Clio belong in all of this?

The Renault Clio 182 Trophy is a true giant killer, a car which finished in the top three of our 2005 Car of the Year contest, beating Aston Martin, Porsche, Lamborghini and two BMW M Division cars to the podium. It conquered Harry's heart, too, and the very car that featured on that test now resides in his collection.
