The story behind Renault Twin'Run concept [video]

Renault has released a video explaining how the compact Twin’Run concept came to life.

This compact sporty concept weighs just 950 kg and 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, enabling it to hit 0-62 mph in just 4.5 seconds, while the top speed is 155 mph.

This is a true pocket rocket. Amazing concept and there are already some rumours circulating about a Renault 5 Turbo revival.

Even if we don’t get the hot Renault 5 Turbo successor, some of the Twin’Run’s styling will make it to the next-generation Twingo.

Take a look at the video below to see the hot Twin-Run in action and how the one-off concept was born.
