Twingo Renaultsport 133

Renault has unveiled details and pricing for its latest 'hot hatch' – the Twingo Renaultsport 133.

The French carmaker says the 1.6-litre Twingo will cost £11,550 on the road and be ‘more powerful than its nearest competitors’.

It comes with a specific Renaultsport chassis and steering tuning as standard, which Renault says will ensure it offers optimum performance and handling.

'Cup' chassis

A ‘Cup’ chassis is also available as an option, which provides lowered ride height, stiffer springs and dampers plus 17-inch alloy wheels for an even sharper driving experience.

Standard equipment includes 16-inch alloy wheels, extended front and rear wheel arches, fog lamp surrounds and rear spoiler, aluminium pedals and a leather steering wheel.

Driving tuition

The Twingo Renaultsport 133 is available in five colours and customers who place an order within the first 133 days will receive a voucher for a free place on a Renaultsport trackday in 2009.

This includes free driving tuition at either Brands Hatch (Kent), Oulton Park (Cheshire), Cadwell Park (Lincolnshire) or Bedford Autodrome (Bedfordshire).
