Renault Twingo Rs

The Renault Twingo RS emphasizes the company's latest design angle, to create cars that embody driving enjoyment and excitement. Developed by Renault Sport, the Twingo RS comes with many design elements taken from Renault Sport Technologies. While the vehicle is set for a March release in Europe, there is no word on a South African release just yet.

The Renault Twingo RS comes with a dynamic grille design and a front bumper that incorporates an F1-style blade. The rear of the car comes with a tailgate-mounted lip spoiler, a special bumper incorporating a diffuser and aerodynamic extensions on the rear wheel arches. An optional Design Pack means the vehicle also comes with grey/dark gunmetal door mirror housings and additional chrome details for the fog light surrounds and new 16 inch ‘Emotion’ alloy wheels. There will also be the option for RS badged centre caps.

Inside the car, there is trademark Renault Sport yellow stitching on the steering wheel, seats and dashboard cowl. The dashboard, radio console, rev-counter housing and lateral air vents are decked out in Gloss Black inserts, while the top of the steering wheel, the seat backs, rev counter surround and manual climate controls come in white.
