Due to a responsive balanced chassis and bump/rebound adjustable shock absorbers, the little rally car is offering different setups for optimal driving performance.
Under the Twingo R2 bonnet, we see a specifically-prepared 4-cylinder 1.6-litre 16V engine, which produces 160hp (118kW) at 7,250rpm an extra 27hp compared to the production engine.
The engine is connected to a five-speed sequential gearbox and steering column mounted shift lever, allowing the car to produce a maximum torque of 160Nm at 5,500rpm, giving it a wide power band.
From the beginning of this project, it has become clear that Renault Sport Technologies has taken the needs of amateur drivers into account.
Renault seeks to make the small rally car easy-to-drive and affordable. Renault Twingo Renaultsport R2 comes in the form of a motorsport package including all the required parts.
Customers who purchase the kit will be able to purchase a Twingo Renaultsport 133 at a special price. This solution allows customers to obtain a complete, fully-registered production car into which the kit is built. Starting early April 2010, the R2 package will be available at the market, at the price of 27,990€ without VAT.
The Twingo Renaultsport 133’s competition version emphasizes the vehicle’s natural sporty looks. The only different feature of the rally version on the outside is the optional roof-mounted air intake.
Its compact proportions and distinctive styling with wide air intake grille on the front bumper, chiselled side sills, and extended wheel arches on both the front and the back complete the perfect exterior of the Twingo Renaultsport 133, making it the best R2 version.
Meanwhile, the interior of the Twingo Renaultsport R2 sports an impressive styling that only enhances driving experience and efficiency. It adapted a similar dashboard and central console as the road car but it has two Sabelt Renaultsport seats and harnesses.
Furthermore, the interior had a LED instrumental panel for all the necessary driving data that are available at all times for the driver and the technical team as well. There is also an optional acquisition system for the driver.
Additionally, the gearshift lever for the sequential dog box on the right side of the steering wheel and the optional hydraulic handbrake lever are easily accessible. On the side of the co-driver seat, there is a power box that has all the electric controls of the car.
