After first previewing the Twingo RS concept back at the 2006 Paris Motor Show, officials have now rolled out the production Twingo Renaultsport 133 high-performance hatch at the current Geneva event. Like the original concept, the new Renaultsport 133 features wider front and rear wings, sculpted side skirts and an aerodynamic spoiler to improve the car’s on-road dynamics.

Additional cooling for the engine is provided by a wide Renaultsport air-intake grille in the front bumper. At the rear, the chromed exhaust tail pipe emerges through a two-tone bumper. The foglamp surrounds, door mirrors and aerodynamic spoiler all sport the same shade of dark grey. As an option, Renaultsport decals can be added to the flanks or rear bumper.

The cabin continues the performance theme with figure-hugging sports buckets, aluminium pedals, a leather steering wheel and a specific rev counter.

Twingo Renaultsport 133 is powered by a normally-aspirated 1.6L 16V engine developed by Renault Sport Technologies. The engine delivers 133hp at 6,750rpm with 160Nm of torque at 4,400rpm. The car rides on 195mm tires wrapped around 17in aluminum alloy wheels and is stopped with ventilated discs and bearings inherited from Megane II, while the calipers are inherited from the bigger Laguna.

The new car will be manufactured at a plant in Novo Mesto in Slovenia and will go on sale this October with a price tag of €15,601 in France.
