The Renaultsport Clio V6 255 and Megane 250 Cup have near identical power-to-weight figures. So which is the best on track? Report, pictures and video

It was always going to be a fascinating head-to-head - Renault’s bijou, mid-engined supercar, the Clio V6 255, taking on its state-of-the-art front-drive cousin, the Mégane 250 Cup.
