Renault has announced plans to unveil the new Twingo on February 13th.

In order to promote the event, Renault will be hosting a "strip-tweet" (aka striptease) on Twitter. Every time the #UndressNewTwingo hashtag is used on, February 13th, a little bit more of Twingo will be revealed on the UndressNewTwingo.com website.

Renault declined to release details about the model but it will ride on the same platform that underpins the new Smart ForTwo. The model could also share three-cylinder petrol and diesel engines with the ForTwo but nothing is official as of yet.

Regardless of the final specifications, the Twingo is expected to have a stylish exterior that borrows cues from the Twin'Z and Twin'Run concepts. The model will likely be available exclusively as a five-door hatchback and offer a variety of customization options.
