2018 Renault Twin Run Rumors and Review – Renault first launched Twin’Run at the 71st Monaco Grand Prix weekend 2013. The new idea car cultivates the sporting spirit of the brand and celebrates automotive interest by paying homage to the famous R5 Turbo and Clio V6.
Like its twin, Twin’Z, Twin’Run is a modern and playful undertake the town car. Both principle cars point out the fifth level in Renault’s design strategy based on the major phases in an eternity, expressed via a blossom petal. Each in its own way symbolizes the “Play” stage and shows the customization likelihood of a city car totally in step with its times.
2018 Renault Twinrun Redesign
The major mechanicals for the idea are all used straight from the world of racing, with a six-speed sequential gearbox, rally-style welded handbrake lever, huge brakes and a limited-slip differential at the back to boost cornering balance. In addition, it rests on huge 18-inch alloy wheels that are pushed right to the each corner of this new car.
The exterior styling has been seriously inspired by iconic rally cars and the daring orange graphics working along the roof top and entry doors, big air vents before the rear arches and a set rear wing. The quad LED lamps at the front are just 25mm thick and can provide different light sequences that are controlled by the drivers.
The interior is stripped out, with just a plexiglass sheet separating the drivers from the V6 engine. The sparco bucket seats have four-point contest harnesses.
2018 Renault Twinrun Engine Specs
The cockpit is segregated from the engine area by means of a plexiglass panel located just aft of leading seats. Unlike the R5 Turbo, the Twin’Run doesn’t use a little four-cylinder engine – or, for example, required induction. Instead, Nissan’s VQ35 3.5-liter V-6 – the same engine found once found in the 350Z and Infiniti G35 — is planted amidship, and mated with a six-speed sequential gearbox. Electric power is then routed by using a limited-slip differential to the rear wheels.
Renault says the 3.5-liter V-6 delivers 320 hp and 380 Nm of torque. That looks slightly pedestrian until you take into account the Twin’Z is nearly the very same size of a Fiat 500, and tips the scales at 2100 pounds – 400 pounds less than a 500 Abarth. That crazy power-to-weight ratio permits a 0-62 mph time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. And, despite placing a huge V-6 in the tail, the Twin’Run has a relatively even 43/57 front side/rear weight circulation.
