    25 if you're gentle, 6 if you're trying

    as a driving experience you won't get anything as "special" hard to describe, every drive is eventful!

    Even a passenger ride in one feels special. If I had the budget to have one as a garage queen weekend toy, I would.

    Clio V6

    Re: clio v6?

    You can easily manage 30mpg if you drive conservatively. Had three now, the Phase 1 is the more hardcore and presents the best value for money IMO.

    Amazing cars overall and pull incredible amounts of attention. Just remember 2 things before buying one:

    1. They don't make good daily rides; and
    2. Body parts, full set of discs/pads and cambelt changes all cost over 1k a time so save at least 100 a month for maintenance!

    My cars gives me that ball tingle that Fred is talking about, every single drive in it is an event. The V6 is even more epic, I was lucky enough to drive one in the dry yet you didn't actually have to drive it hard to enjoy it.

    I was also surprised with the fact that the engine noise (standard) wasn't actually that introusive. I did see 9 mpg flas up and 21 Iain said was "good".

    Fantastic machine. MK2 in Lilad Blue please. Sadly it's "one" of those cars that will remain a pipe dream. A lotus Exige is more practical than the V6 imo.

    I have been told by a few people that have owned these that performance wise they are quite slow. Not half as good as they look.

    I'll own one one day... and yes they're not super quick but er hello you're driving a Clio with a V6 in the boot - recipe for big grins all round. Until you're forced to do a 3 point turn

    you have to know how to drive them, takes a good 6months to really understand what its all about, quick car if you're brave, 95% of owners aren't though which is understandable seeing as a bumper will cost about 1500 fitted and sprayed!
