Renault Twin'Run concept debuts at the Monaco Grand Prix [video]

Renault has unveiled the Twin’Run at the 71st Monaco Grand Prix, celebrates automotive passion by paying homage to the legendary R5 Turbo and Clio V6. It is also very likely a preview for a modern day Renault 5 Turbo.

The compact two-seater concept is powered by a mid-mounted 316bhp 3.5-litre V6 with 280 lb ft of torque found also on the Megane Trophy. Power is sent to the rear wheels via six-speed sequential gearbox and a limited slip differential.

Weighing just 950 kg thanks to fiberglass body panels, a tubular chassis, carbon fibre parts like the roof, front splitter, wheel arches and rear vents, the Twin’Run reaches 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds before topping out at 155 mph.

Riding on 18-inch alloy wheels fitted with Michelin 205/40 front and 245/35 rear tyres, the concept boasts a blue paint finish, graphically drawn lines and a big rear spoiler.

Measuring 3680mm in length, 1750mm in width and 1493mm in height, the concept has a 43:57 weight distribution.

Some of the styling seen on the Twin’Run is expected to debut on the next-generation Twingo. We’ll see soon as the new Twingo has been in development for some time now.
