Renault has revealed its all-new Twingo GT, which goes on sales in the UK from December 1.

Priced at £13,755, the rear-engined city car has had its power upped to 109bhp, while torque sits at a respectable 170Nm. This allows the Twingo GT to hit 60mph in 9.4 seconds.

The added performance has been gained through a modified turbocharger, upgraded fuel pump, revised engine mapping and a new twin silencer exhaust that has been designed specifically for the Twingo GT.

The standard car’s five-speed manual gearbox has also been modified, with new ratios that allow it to cope with the Twingo’s increased power output. The accelerator has also been re-mapped to give better throttle response.

Renault Sport have also re-worked the Twingo GT’s chassis to give it improved handling. This has been achieved through stiffer shock absorbers, a larger diameter anti-roll bar and a 20mm reduction in ride height. The 17-inch alloy wheels are inspired by those first seen on the Twin’Run concept from 2013.

The Twingo GT has also been given some exterior changes to help differentiate it from the rest of the Twingo line-up. It features a sporty bodykit, tinted rear windows, as well as the previously mentioned alloy wheels.

The car’s cabin features orange trim details throughout, as well as part-leather seat upholstery. The dashboard, air vents and steering wheel have also been given a grey finish, completing the sporty look.

Another trim level, Dynamique S, will also debut alongside the Twingo GT. This will cost from £12,205, and will incorporate a number of changes to interior and exterior.
