French car maker Renault has announced the completion of its new high-performance car.

The new Twingo Renault Sport will be perfectly positioned between the Clio and the Megane Renault Sport.

Its makers believe that this sporty runner is a "genuine hot hatch" with looks to match, and designed to deliver enjoyable roadholding performances.

Renault says the new car is super-efficient and boasts a superbly balanced chassis.

Renault believes that it provides a package that will appeal to all those motorists who insist on pure driving pleasure.

With its unmistakable credentials, Renault has produced an affordable high-performance car, which will complement the Clio and Mégane Renault Sport in the Renault Sport range.

Twingo Renault Sport's compact proportions and incisive, assertive styling match the Twingo Concept show car, which was unveiled at the 2006 Paris show.

Twingo's existing lines are underpinned by a more curvaceous, athletic stance.

Its sleek look is further emphasised by its wider front and rear wings, profiled sills and spoiler.

Its chassis is responsive and finely tuned to provide precise, balanced sports handling, while specific work on the pitch of its new 133hp 1,598cc engine reveals its punchy temperament.
