New Twingo Renaultsport 133 arrives for 2012
Renault has revealed the new Twingo Renaultsport 133 with the facelift from the regular Twingo range. Costs £13,565 in the UK.
Having revealed the facelift for the Renault Twingo last summer – and come up with a price for the titivated Twingo in January - Renault has now revealed the new look and prices for the sporty option – the new Twingo Renaultsport 133.
Changes on the Twingo Renaultsport are much as you’d expect and in line with those made to the rest of the Twingo range. There’s a new grill with four lights and an F1-style blade (well, Renault need to get something to show for their F1 spend) and out back there’s a black spoiler, new bumper with diffuser and aerodynamic extensions to the wheel arches with 16″ alloys.
The inside gets the usual Renaultsport tweaks with yellow stitching on the seats and steering wheel, white detailing for the top of the steering wheel, seat backs and cushions, rev counter surround and AirCon controls. Also on the list is Bluetooth, Cruise, gloss black door mirrors ESC, privacy glass and chrome tailpipe.
At £13,565 the pocket-rocket from Renault is decently equipped, but you can still splash out on options if the mood takes. Stuff like 17″ alloys (£500), Metallic Paint (£460), Reanaultsport Liquid Yellow paint job (£1300),Cup Chassis (£700) or the Anthracite Style pack (£150).
Under the skin is the same on the latest Twingo Renaultsport which means 1.6 litre petrol engine still delivers a lively 133bhp giving a 0-60mph of 8.7 seconds and a top speed of 125mph. Despite no apparent changes to the oily bits Renault are claiming the Twingo to be slightly more frugal and slightly less emitting than before – 43.5mpg and 150g/km.
The new Twingo Reanultsport goes on sale on 2nd April with first cars in UK showrooms by 23rd April.
