Renault has added a new version of its Renaultsport Twingo 133 Cup to the hot hatch range.
The latest model keeps the same 131bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine and Cup suspension set-up as its higher-specced sister model, but it does without air conditioning, automatic headlamp and wiper operation, extra tinted rear windows and features a one-piece bench in place of the usual independent sliding rear seats.
This means buyers get all of the performance and dynamics of the more expensive car, but for £700 less.
The Cup chassis rides 4mm lower than the standard Renaultsport set-up, and it gets tuned damper settings and 10 per cent stiffer spring rates at the front and rear.
It gets 17-inch aluminium wheels, which can now be coated in gloss black paint as a £175 option. The Galcier White paint pictured here is also available as a £150 option for all Renaultsport Twingo models.
The Renaultsport Twingo 133 Cup costs £11,795 and it will be available to order from 1 October. Deliveries are expected to start at the beginning of November.
