Renault Sport has shown in their social networks a few teasers, photo & video, which anticipate that will be the Sporty Renault Twingo all. We have been waiting for the smallest model of Renault would have a spicier version thanks to Renault Sport and seems to be that this introduction version will have the name of Renault Twingo GTfor time.
Despite being a Renault Sport model, will not carry the initials given RS which will be a model of lower power than previous Renault Twingo RS, with a 133 HP 1.6 engine. In the case of the Renault Twingo GT, it is logical to think that the mechanics that will give life to the model is the same that employ the smart fortwo and forfour Brabus, i.e. the 0.9 turbo three-cylinder Renault boosted to the 109 horsepower and 170 Nm of torque. It would be associated with the automatic EDC dual clutch and six-speed gearbox.
With this mechanics under the hood and given the similarity of both models, we can imagine that the 0 – 100 km/h of the Renault Twingo GT will be close to 10.5 seconds for the smart forfour Brabus, with a maximum speed, in the case of the smart, of 180 kilometers per hour. This version keeps the consumption to grate with an average of 4.6 litres 100.
As they reveal the teasers published by the signing of the diamond, the Renault Twingo GT will soon much to be known, wearing a sportier bodywork, a point-to-point specific implementation of the chassis and, of course, a more powerful engine. A new direction of variable assistance based on speed, firmer damping, front stabilizer bar and a recalibrated ESP are major amendments incorporating the Brabus smart to bring out its sportier appearance.
