The new Twingo GT combines the inherent agility of Renault’s rear-wheel drive city car with Renault Sport’s history to deliver a whole lot of fun. Its 898cc Energy TCe turbo engine has been tuned to deliver 110 horsepower and 125lb ft torque thanks to a revised air intake system and modified engine mapping, while different gearing 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 cornering and handling. These features combine to provide drivers of the Twingo GT with a lot of fun behind the wheel.
Easily recognisable thanks to its 17-inch wheels, lateral air intakes, twin exhaust tail pipe and new orange body color, 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 colors, namely the new orange, Lunar Grey, Diamond Black and Crystal White, along with orange trim details in the cabin, Renault Sport-badged door sills, aluminum pedals and an alloy gear lever knob.
