More details on Renault’s 217bhp Clio Cup racer

Twingo R.S. adopts Renault’s new styling

With more than 10,000 cars sold since its launch in September 2008, Twingo R.S. has emerged as one of the most popular Renaultsport models – further boosted by the Twingo Gordini R.S. in early 2010.

Now with the launch of the restyled Renault Twingo at the start of this year, it’s time for Renaultsport to receive the new styling cues.
