Renault Twin` Run Concept

Renault wants to be recognized by its clients and the whole public from all regions and market segments as one of the world’s most important car manufacturers for the quality of its products and services. The French company is constantly working on new projects. One of these ideas is the Renault Twin’ Run. The vehicle looks like an interesting and funny little car that has been finally revealed at the Monaco Grand Prix after a number of teasers or spy photos.


The Renault Twin’ Run is seen by many critics as the concept previewing a possible modern Renault 5 Turbo. The Megane Trophy is the car that provides the engine for the two-seater. So, the Twin is powered by a mid-mounted V6 3.5-liter engine that produces 316 bhp (235 kW) at 6,800 rpm and has a maximum torque of 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) at 4,850 rpm. The heart of the car is linked to a six-speed sequential gearbox and a limited slip differential which pump energy to the wheels at the back of the vehicle. This system allows the Twin’ Run to go from stand point to 62 mph (100 km/h) in about 4.5 seconds. The maximum speed that can be reached is 155 mph (250 km/h).


Regarding the body of the Renault Twin’ Run, it is made of glass polyester composite and has benefited from racing expertise. This means carbon fiber for the front blade, roof, rear vent and wheel arches. Carbon fiber technology combines aesthetics and efficiency and at the same time keeps the costs low. It also reduces the weight of the car to 950 kg (2,094 lbs). Some of these features are said to be transferred to a future generation of Renault Twingo which is expected to come as a five doors model.


The concept of Renault Twin’ Run rides on a set of alloys wrapped in Michelin rubbers sized 205/40 at the front and 245/35 at the rear. The braking system includes some vented discs with six piston calipers for the front wheels and four piston calipers for the rear ones. The vehicle has a length of 3680 mm, a height of 1493 and it is 1750 wide. Inside the vehicle we find a performance cabin. It is equipped with SPARCO seats and black and red alcantara effects cover the door panels and the dashboard. The fortunate driver can enjoy a sports steering wheel, a sequential gear lever and aluminum pedals. Another noticeable thing is the 5.5 inch LCD screen set behind the steering wheel. The red and blue multi-page display shows the vehicle’s speed, gear speed and engine speed, and the fuel pressure, clutch pressure and oil pressure, too. Twin’ Run is a mixture of energy, passion and athleticism and it will certainly impress the audience.
