These are the very first spy photos of next year's more potent RS version of the all-new Renault Twingo.
It was only yesterday when we published spy pics of the 2015 Smart ForTwo by Brabus and now photographs with its French cousin, the Renault Twingo RS, have emerged. The angry rear-wheel drive pocket rocket wearing the diamond logo will come with an additional air intake below the front grille while at the back it will feature a dual exhaust setup.
Power will likely be generated by an uprated variant of the three-cylinder 0.9-liter TCe turbocharged gasoline engine which in the standard Twingo and ForTwo develops 90 PS (66 kW) and 135 Nm (100 lb-ft). The RS derivative will up the ante to somewhere in the region of 110 - 120 PS (81 - 88 kW), just like the Brabus-modified ForTwo.
Aside from offering more power, both cars will pack a sports suspension setup, larger wheels, beefier brakes and probably a revised steering system for a more agile feel while a few aerodynamic tweaks are probably planned as well. The cars should be out in the first half of 2015 and will command a significant premium over the standard versions to justify the upgrades.
