Spent the evening in one of my favourite cars last night and it got me thinking. It’s one of the cheapest hot hatches on the market, and in fact one of the cheaper new cars you can buy today.

The car in question is the Renaultsport Twingo 133, fitted with the optional Cup pack. First of all it looks fantastic in my opinion with its chunky wheel arches and sporty interior. Lairy, unique and looking far faster than it actually is, with possibly one of the nicest set of alloys around for any price.

The devil is in the detail with the Twingo RS, or rather the lack of it. I’m fascinated by the little touches that I’m guessing keep the price down to around £12K, which should be less if you ask nicely. There’s no auto electric windows, a hard plastic dashboard, and the usual two flashing indicator lights on the dashboard – one for both right and left – are replaced by a single one.
