RENAULT Twingo RS   2011 2013
2011 2013

Unveiled to the public in 1993, the Renault Twingo was a small and economical city car.
Later on, in 2007, Renault dared to go for a hot hatch, the Twingo RS, developed by the company’s performance division, Renault Sport.

It was in 2011 when the phase 2 Renault Twingo underwent a very aggressive restyling with the work of Laurens van den Acker. The fresh look was evocative of Formula 1: at the rear, the new RS featured a spoiler on the tailgate and prominent wheel arches, as well as a specific diffuser. New bespoke 16-inch alloys equipped the new RS.

The interior was available with a choice of fresh colors and materials.

Using the same 1.6-liter engine, the small French sportswoman hid 133 ponies under the hood and liked to be taken between 4000 and 7000 rpm.

With the reworked acoustics, the sound was flattering inside the small Twingo.

Even if in the 0-100 sprint the RS was not the fastest, it was a real pleasure to drive it on twisty roads, as corners she loved the most.

The dynamic behaviour was exceptional, and with the CUP chassis it was even better. The CUP chassis lowered the body by 10mm, added aluminum suspension arms and a thicker anti-roll bar.

Renault had a long history of small sporty hatchbacks, and the Twingo RS was just the car to prove the French carmaker’s expertise in that area.
Renault introduced the second generation of the Twingo in 2007 at the Geneva Motor Show and waited until the following year to launch its sportiest version, the Twingo RS. Like its other brothers, the Clio RS and the Megane RS, the little brother was available with a Cup package as well that added 17” light wheels, stiffer suspension, and a racy-look.

The RS version featured an aggressive bumper with a black, trapezoidal center side and two silver side pods that hosted the fog-lights at the front. Its slightly widened front fenders featured body-colored plastic molds. Renault installed a small roof-spoiler on top of the tailgate in the rear, which was slightly longer for the Cup package.

Inside, the little French vehicle featured all the advantages from its non-RS sibling with the rear sliding bench that could make more room for passengers or for the trunk. The RS trim added sport aluminum pedals, and a tachometer mounted on the steering column, and “Renault Sport” letterings on the hand-brake lever and on the seats.

Under the hood, Renault Sport installed a 1.6-liter engine that provided 133 hp. It wasn’t the most potent four-pot unit developed by the French specialist team, but it was powerful enough for the small hot-hatch. The engineers paired it with a 5-speed manual.
