The car dubbed the Dacia STCC Edition uses a body inspired by the firms Logan model. Logan is a popular model build by Dacia, a romanian company accuired by Renault.
The Dacia Logan STCC has been captured on video ahead of its racing debut in the Swedish Touring Car Championship scheduled for May 3-4.
The Dacia Logan STCC is manufactured by Swedish firm Solution F and uses a V6 3.5-liter mid-mounted engine producing more than 400 bhp (298 kW). The mill is linked to a 6-speed sequential gearbox and helps the 2,204 lbs (1,000 kg) racer sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in three seconds, en route to a top speed of 168 mph (270 km/h).
A Race track is probably the last place you’d expect to see a Dacia Logan on, but thanks to the Company’s Swedish dealer the car is going to compete at this year’s STCC (Swedish Touring Car Championship), and by the looks of things it is ready to see some action. So apart from the body shell, this car isn’t really a Dacia. But still, it is quite cool to see an economy car tear up the track like this. Kudos to Dacia and Swedish team Solution F.
