Twizy Renault Sport F1: Insane in Every Sense of the Word

When Renault teased its proposed F1-inspred electric sportscar a few days back, this writer was pretty anxious to see just exactly what that might be. A new Alpine, maybe? DeZir? No. It was this- the Twizy Renault Sport F1 Concept. Probably the most useless KERS-boasting car you will ever see. That's right, KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) the same tech used in F1 cars and road-going supercars like the Ferrar LaFerrari. Except, it's on an all-electric Twizy. It's just all sorts of insane.

Twizy Renault Sport F1: Insane in Every Sense of the Word

This collaboration between Renaultsport and Renault Sport F1 engineers pumps out nearly 100-hp from under the bonnet, which propels the Twizy to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just about 6 seconds. Making it about as fast as a RenaultSport Megane 265, mind you. Although, top speed is only about 68 mph (109 km/h). All this crazy will most likely never, ever be put into production, but it is a good example of just what a bunch of F1 engineers can really do with a golf kart-sized piece of engineering.
