Renault has a rich heritage in high-performance hot hatches, and Twingo Renaultsport 133 is no exception. With top performance and an impressive level of standard equipment, the Twingo Renaultsport 133 ensures it is a worthy entry-point addition to the Renault hot hatch range.

Priced at just £11,550, Twingo Renaultsport 133 offers on-the-road thrills at an affordable price. Unlike some of its competitors, Twingo Renaultsport 133 is easily distinguishable from the standard car with extended wheel arches and sills as standard.

The Twingo comes with specific Renaultsport chassis and steering tuning as standard ensuring it offers optimum performance and handling. There is no wait necessary for the ‘Cup’ chassis either as Renault Sport Technologies has developed this for Twingo from launch, along with a new 1.6 naturally-aspirated 1.6-litre VVT engine delivering 133hp at 6,750rpm with 160Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm.

There’s no doubting the Twingo Renaultsport 133’s vigorous performance, tenacious road-holding and refinement, whilst its exterior and interior styling makes it obvious that this is a car in which to have fun.

Twingo Renaultsport 133’s long list of standard equipment, in addition to those on Twingo GT, includes:

ESP (which can be manually deactivated), Renaultsport chassis with 16″ alloy wheels and 195/45 tyres, Renaultsport front and rear bumpers and side sills, extended front and rear wheel arches, gunmetal grey door mirror housings, fog lamp surrounds and rear spoiler, aluminium pedals, Renaultsport leather steering wheel, Renaultsport rev counter with gearshift indicator light, Renaultsport front seats with enhanced lateral support and distinctive orange seatbelts.

Twingo Renaultsport 133 is available with a choice of five colours: Capsicum Red or £375 optional metallic Pearl Black, Extreme Blue, Mercury Silver or Mirage Grey. The latter is a new colour exclusive to the Renaultsport version.

‘Cup’ chassis available from launch

An option available on Twingo Renaultsport 133 is the ‘Cup’ chassis. Priced at £650, it features a 4mm lower ride height, stiffer springs and dampers, 17″ dark grey Anthracite alloy wheels and 195/40 tyres.
