New Renault Twingo GT revealed

By Faiming_low on 07 Jun 2016 in New model

Attached Image The Renault Twingo has been blessed with a rear-wheel drive chassis all along but with only 90bhp available in its most powerful guise, it was begging for more.

Set to debut later this month at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the new Renault Twingo GT will be blessed with 110bhp from its 0.9-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine, thanks to a revised air intake and remapped engine software. While a 20bhp jump doesnt sound like much, on a small car like the Twingo, it should mean quite a lot.

Renault fans might notice that even with all the sportier changes, there is no mention of the much vaunted RS badge on the car... Might that mean there could be an even more hardcore variant?

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

This car looks like it's suitable for a 18-19yo teenager.
