To go on sale at UK dealerships this April is the Renault Twingo Gordini Renaultsport. Priced at £14,500, this model actually costs £2100 more than the standard car. Only 200 of these cars will be sold in the UK.
This car, which is based on a standard Twingo Renaultsport 133 Cup, received several styling modifications that include metallic blue or black paintwork, two white racing stripes, gloss black front and rear bumper sections, and a white finish on the fog lamp surrounds, exterior door mirror housings and rear tailgate spoiler.
The car comes with 17-inch alloys, with their inner rim finished in blue or black. At either side, we can see a Gordini Series badging that is reminiscent of the 1960s at the Gordini Cup in France, when the qualifying heats of the different race meetings were known as "series.
There are also other changes, which include sports seats, blue leather door panel inserts, a blue and black leather steering wheel, a Gordini badged gearknob and a leather-trimmed dash cowl.
Extra equipment over the Renaultsport 133 consists of the following: automatic climate control, automatic headlamp activation, automatic wiper activation, cruise control, a speed limiter, fully disconnectable ESP, extra-tinted rear windows and individual sliding rear seats.
Just like the standard Renaultsport, customers can specifically ask for a Cup chassis for a lower ride height and stiffer springs and dampers, curtain airbags, an electrically-operated panoramic sunroof. Customers can also opt for a Gordini key fob and Gordini carpet mats.
