June 10, 2016

The new Twingo GT combines the 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 110bhp 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, according to Renault, 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.

The car is easily recognisable thanks to its 17-inch wheels, lateral air intakes, twin exhaust tail pipe and new orange body colour. The Twingo III’s lines 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.
