A new version of the RS Twingo 133 Cup has been unveiled by Renault, which made adjustments on the features primarily to reduce the car's price. Based on the popular Twingo Renaultsport, the new model is powered by the same 1.6-liter engine that develops 131 bhp. The new model has the same suspension system.
However, to cut costs, it now has no air conditioning, automatic headlamp and wipers or extra tinted rear windows. In addition, a single bench has replaced the sliding rear seats.
The car is equipped with 17-inch aluminum wheels and it rides a further 4mm lower than the standard setting.
For an additional 150 pounds, you can get Glacier White paint. For 175 pounds more, you can also get the wheels painted in gloss black. Meanwhile, a special edition codenamed Dolce Vita was rolled out recently. It is only available for French buyers and is aimed for women drivers.
Prices start from 11,050 euros (with France's 700 euros eco-bonus subsidy deducted). The model's engine options include the eco-friendly 1.2 LEV 16V 75 or the dCi 65 engine, emitting 119g and 113g of CO2/km respectively.
Due to its changes, the price for the new Twingo has been reduced by 700 pounds. It now sells for 11,795 pounds and is set to arrive at showrooms in October.
