End for Twingo Renaultsport 133

End for Twingo Renaultsport 133

With only six Twingo Renaultsport 133s left in stock and the car maker ending production of the model, drivers looking for a hot hatch should act now.

Renault said it is bringing an end to sales of the vehicle after five years. Those left on the forecourt have a 133bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine and weigh just 1,050kg each.

Other features include the option of 16 or 17-inch alloy wheels, and all include rear spoiler, sports front seats and a Renaultsport Monitor to record track lap times.

News on a replacement model has not yet been revealed, but the firm has suggested that the next model could be styled on the 320bhp V6-powered TwinRun concept car, using a dual-clutch gearbox seen in the new Clio Renaultsport 200 Turbo EDC.

The last remaining Twingo Renaultsport 133s are priced from £13,955.
