Renault R5 Turbo Reborn With TWIN’RUN Concept


Renault TWIN'RUN Concept frontRenault have a history of making cracking little hatchbacks. Often they are genuinely usable yet utterly enjoyable to chuck around when the going gets twisty. Every now and then the French company take things a step further and produce something a bit bonkers. The Clio V6 is a clear case and example of this. One of the most legendary of these mad hatchbacks was the Renault 5 Turbo, something that has inspired their latest concept car.

Foreshadowing design elements of the all new Renault Twingo, this is the TWIN’RUN concept car. Packed full of funky design features including those futuristic rally lamps, this little car packs quite a punch. Within its tubular chassis structure sits a mid-mounted 3.5 litre V6 with 320BHP. The engine itself is lifted directly from a Megane trophy racer. 0-62MPH comes and goes in just 4.5 seconds and the TWIN’RUN will go onto a top speed of 155MPH.

Obviously we wouldn’t expect to see this car make production, but its design shall influence Renault’s smallest hatchback.
