Geneva: Renault Twingo RS 133 Hp
Renault released more photos and details of its new Twingo RS sport minicar that will go in sale in Europe this summer. Unfortunately, the French carmaker has yet to reveal performance figures for their new vehicle that’s powered by a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter engine developing 133 Hp at 6,750rpm with 160Nm of torque at 4,400rpm.
Notably, along with the standard Twingo RS, Renaiult will also offer customers the choice of a performance-focused Cup version. In this configuration, the Twingo RS rides a further 4mm lower than the standard settings and it also gets tuned damper settings and higher spring rates (10% stiffer front and rear). Outside, the Cup version stands out by its larger, anthracite-colored 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels with 195/40 tyres.
