New Renault Twingo R.S


Renault unveiled the latest edition of the Twingo RS hot hatch along with the Gordini edition.

The car features unique styling with a touch of sportiness brought by vibrant new colors and aero parts, plus a fancy interior with gloss block accents and yellow accents. The engine is a normally-aspirated 1.6 16V R.S. engine with 133hp/98kW at 6,750rpm, and 160Nm of torque at 4,400rpm. The car also gets outstanding road holding with the standard Sport chassis. The optional Cup chassis (ride height lowered by 4mm) is also offered.

As for the Gordini model, 17-inch diamond-effect black wheels, leather trim and automatic climate control, New Twingo Gordini R.S. defines sporty chic in imitable fashion with its twin stripes. In addition to the blue interior option, a new grey interior can now be specified, irrespective of body colour (Malte Blue, Glacier White, Pearlescent Black or Vif Red).

Renault press release:

Genuine sporty credentials

New Twingo R.S., which will go on sale from mid-March 2012, features the sporting interpretation of Renault’s new styling identity, including a dynamic grille design with four lights and a front bumper incorporating an F1-style blade. This detail, which now runs across the Renault Sport range, recalls Renault’s success in Formula 1. The hallmark Sirius Yellow finish will be available as an option from the end of May. The rear end of the car features a tailgate-mounted lip spoiler, a special bumper incorporating a diffuser and aerodynamic extensions on the rear wheel arches. Also available is a Design Pack which includes Grey/Dark Gunmetal Grey door mirror housings, F1 blade and R.S. lip spoiler, plus chrome details for the fog light surrounds. It will also be possible to specify new 16-inch ‘Emotion’ alloy wheels complete with ‘R.S.’-badged centre caps which proudly proclaim the car’s pedigree.

Trademark Renault Sport yellow stitching will feature inside New Twingo R.S. (on the steering wheel, seats and dashboard cowl), while the dashboard, radio console, rev-counter housing and lateral air vents all come with Gloss Black inserts. The top of the steering wheel, seat backs and cushions, rev-counter surround and manual climate control controls are picked out in white.
