Global unveil for Renault’s genre-busting new Twingo GT at Goodwood

Festival of Speed | Press Article 17/04/24

Renault will unveil a hot version of its small city car, the Twingo, at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed (June 23-26).

The Twingo GT will boast 110bhp from its tuned engine, a revised manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive.

A sporty new look, stiffened suspension and variable-rate steering means the car will feature sharp handling, responsive steering feedback and excellent road-holding, a performance-orientated package unprecedented in the small city car sector.

The Twingo GT will not be available in the UK until Winter, meaning that the car’s global unveil on Goodwood’s Press & Preview day (Thursday, June 23) will be the first time it has been seen in the flesh.

Renault will also give the brand new Mégane Sport Tourer GT205 its first UK airing at the Moving Motor Show, part of Goodwood’s Press & Preview Day. The car will be on display in the Moving Motor Show pavilion throughout.

Meanwhile, following its debut at the Monaco Grand Prix, Renault Sport’s 275hp Clio R.S. 16 concept car will be on display in the ‘First Glance’ area and will be driven up Goodwood’s 1.16-mile hillclimb each day to fully demonstrate its dynamic prowess.

Visitors to the Moving Motor Show won’t just get to look at Renault’s new metal – members of the public will be able to take the wheel themselves on the hillclimb, with drives in the Renault Clio R.S. 220 Trophy and the hatch version of the new Mégane GT205 on offer.
