Which Renault Twingo review is this, then? This is the Renault Twingo GT. It’s as fast as the current Twingo gets and, if Renault is to be believed, as fast as it will ever get. It remains rear-wheel drive, its rear-mounted engine a tuned up version of the 0.9-litre three-cylinder turbo you’ll find in regular Twingos. It now makes 108bhp and 125lb ft: modest figures, but enough to take a 1,001kg car like this from 0-62mph in under ten seconds. The same engine powers the Smart Brabus, but the weeny Renault differs by offering a manual gearbox rather than a paddleshifter. Expected to make up five to ten per cent of Twingo sales, GT prices start at £13,755. The old RenaultSport Twingo was good, I recall.
