2013 Renault Twin'Run Concept

Reminiscence of the Renault 5 Turbo in the 1980s, 
the Twin'Run Concept has a steel, tubular chassis that provides the structure. 
Within it, just ahead of the rear axle is a 3.5-liter V6 with 320 horsepower and 
280 pound-feet of torque, shifted through a six-speed sequential transmission. 
To keep its city-car proportions stable on 18-inch wheels, the fuel tank, 
radiator and hydraulic system are in the front, under the hood, 
resulting in a 43/57 front-to-rear weight balance.
The bodywork is a mix of glass fiber and carbon fiber, 
the squarish headlamps and supplemental quad headlamps a nod to the 
R5 Turbo rally car and its light rack for nighttime stages. 
Inside is lots of black and red Alcantara, a gauge cluster wrapped in 
white lacquer and aluminum pedals whose setup is said to be motorsports tested. 
The whole package weighs 2,090 pounds.
