Renaut Sport’s R.S. and GT models slipped on their snow tyres to check out some new terrain in the icy landscapes of Lapland and snowy peaks of Val Thorens. Are they as fun on ice as they are on tarmac? Take a look and see for yourself!

The R.S. models really come into their own on the circuits, while the GT models live it up on the road. Occasions are few and far between to test out their potential on ice.

Renault Sport decided to take two of its top models – the Clio R.S. 220 EDC Trophy and Twingo GT – to higher ground to see how they perform on ice. First stop: Arjeplog (Lapland), a site carmakers use to test their models in the extreme cold. Next, we hit the mountain roads to reach the Alain Prost ice racing track at the Val Thorens ski resort and inaugurate Renault Sport’s new partnership with the Ice Driving Val Thorens driving school.

The verdict? Without a doubt, the Renault Sport models are just as much fun and exciting on ice as they are on other surfaces. The photos speak for themselves…
