Renault has expanded its Gordini line-up with the addition of a new model to the Twingo range that will replace the GT variant.
It goes on sale in the UK in 25 November, priced from £11,395, including VAT at the new 20 per cent rate, and will reach UK showrooms from January.
The new Renault Twingo Gordini 100 will sit at the top of the range of standard Twingos above the Dynamique, but will be positioned below the Renaultsport Twingo Gordini launched in the UK earlier this year.
Renault has been impressed with the success of the Gordini spec on its Renaultsport versions of the Twingo and Clio; Gordini models now account for two thirds of all Twingo RS sales, while one third of all Clio RS models sold are in Gordini trim.
Standard Gordini changes over the outgoing GT model include new sports seats and 15-inch wheels, while the option list includes Gordini-badged blue and black leather upholstery.
Other Gordini features include a metallic blue exterior paint finish with twin white racing stripes, and new details or surrounds for the foglamps, exterior mirror housings and rear spoilers. Other colour options include Pearlescent Black and Glacier White.
Interior features include new door trims, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, a new rev counter, a new finish for the centre console and aluminium pedals.
Power comes from a 99bhp 1.2-litre petrol unit that gives the car a top speed of 117mph. Its CO2 emissions are 132g/km, while fuel economy is rated at 49.5mpg. The car also uses the outgoing GT's chassis, with stiffer shock absorbers and bushes, and recalibrated sports steering.
