  • New Twingo GT

    The Twingo GT, honed for driving enjoyment
    • The combination of a 110hp petrol engine, a manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive sees Renault propose an unprecedented package in the small city car class: the Twingo GT
    • The Twingo GT’s sporty look draws its inspiration from the Twin’Run concept car
    • The Twingo GT will make its world debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, West Sussex, England, June 23-26
    More power for added driving enjoyment
    The new Twingo GT combines the inherent agility of Renault’s rear-wheel drive city car with Renault Sport’s expertise to deliver even more driving pleasure. Its 898cc Energy TCe turbo engine has been tuned to deliver 110 horsepower and 170Nm torque thanks to a revised air intake system and modified engine mapping, while different gearing further contributes to the new car’s sprightly, free-revving performance.

    In order to take advantage of this performance boost in total safety, the Twingo GT’s chassis features revised suspension, specific ESP calibration and variable-rate steering. The result is sharp handling and responsive steering feedback for precise cornering and outstanding road holding. These features combine to provide drivers of the Twingo GT with affordable pleasure behind the wheel.

    Look inspired by the Twin’Run concept car
    Easily recognisable thanks to its 17-inch wheels, lateral air intakes, twin exhaust tail pipe and new orange body colour, the Twingo GT’s sporty credentials and heritage are visible at first glance. The Twingo III’s lines, which drew their inspiration from the Twin’Run concept car, combine perfectly with the Twingo GT’s specific wheel design, NACA aircraft graphics – a tribute to the wings of the famous American plane – and lowered ride height to produce a head-turning look.

    The Twingo GT comes in a choice of four colours, namely the new orange, Lunar Grey, Diamond Black and Crystal White, along with orange trim details in the cabin, Renault Sport-badged doorsills, aluminium pedals and an alloy gear lever knob.

    The Twingo GT will be available in the UK this winter.

                  No, i know it's not a finished article.
                  But i don't like the wheels, four doors make it look cluttered, it doesn't at all look sporty, the bumpers look no wider or lower than the standard car.

                  It's just abit meh!

                    The bigger profile rear tyres give it a bit of a dragster look.

                      I bet that little thing will be a right laugh, not so long ago 110 bhp in a hot hatch was a lot. It's rear wheel drive and proper light.

                        110bhp was what my mk1 Clio RSi had from a 1.8 8v. Then the mk2 Clio RSi 1.6 16v 110bhp
