Renault has released a video in which they explain how the Twin’Run concept came to life.

Perhaps one of Renault's most exciting concepts in recent years is the Twin'Run which is the perfect definition of a pocket rocket. It weighs just 950 kg (2,094 lbs) and offers 316 bhp (235 kW) thanks to its Megane Trophy-sourced V6 3.5-liter mid-mounted engine.

Power is transferred to rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox and a limited-slip differential. As a result of this setup, the Twin'Run concept can sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in only 4.5 seconds and will do a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

For the moment there aren't any signs of a Renault 5 Turbo revival, but at least the Twin'Run's styling will serve as a foundation for the next-gen Twingo which will most likely be offered in a five-door variant as well. The concept is 3680mm long, 1750mm wide and 1493mm tall, riding on 18-inch alloys wrapped around in Michelin tires while on the inside it has Sparco seats with race-spec harnesses.
