For those of you that like small mid-engine cars


316 bhp and 950 kg

Following a batch of spy shots and a teaser, Renault has officially revealed the Twin'Run concept.
Envisioned most likely as a preview of a potential modern Renault 5 Turbo, the two-seater concept packs a mid-mounted V6 3.5-liter engine borrowed from the Megane Trophy. It generates 316 bhp (235 kW) at 6,800 rpm and a peak torque of 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) at 4,850 rpm. Power is sent to rear wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox and a limited slip differential. Thanks to this setup, the Twin'Run needs just 4.5 seconds to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) and a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
It tips the scales at only 950 kg (2,094 lbs) thanks to fiberglass body panels and a tubular chassis, while the roof, front splitter, wheel arches and rear vent are made from carbon fiber. Some of the styling will be carried over to the next-gen Twingo but with a rumored five-door configuration.
It sits on 18-inch alloy wheels shod in Michelin 205/40 front and 245/35 rear tires, while stopping power is provided by vented discs with six-piston calipers for the front wheels and four-piston calipers for the rear axle. The concept is 3680mm long, 1750mm wide and 1493mm tall, with a 43:57 weight distribution.
Inside the cabin it has Sparco seats with race-spec harnesses, sequential gear lever and handbrake levers installed close to the steering wheel, a 5.5-inch LCD instrument cluster, plus black & red Alcantara-like suede for the dashboard and door panels.
Full details can be found in the attached press release.

I have only seen one Renault 5 Turbo in the US that was in the early 80s in Westchester county. I think when a use one comes up for sale in the US it is quite expensive.

Just what I had before the Fit :( damn that old man for hitting me, but I love my Fit! Had a gen3 swap with basic bolt-ons making ~280whp on 91.
