Track battle: Audi R8 V10 Plus vs. Renault Clio Cup race car

This might sound like a very strange track battle at first with Audi R8 V10 Plus taking on a Renault Clio Cup racer.

One is a mid-engine V10 supercar and the other a compact hatch modified for racing. But if you leave the V10 vs four-cylinder comparison behind it is actually a quite interesting track battle.

The VR8 V10 Plus does have 322bhp advantage over the Clio Cup race car along with a more advanced suspension, but the compact track rocket is much lighter with a circuit-tuned suspension, a stripped-down cabin, an ultra-quick sequential paddleshift gearbox and of course it has the slick tyres that really make a huge difference.

So which one would win it on the track? It is not an easy guess, so hit play to see this tight competition by Evo.
