Urban Single Seater Renault Twizy Borrows From Its F1 Brother

By: | May 8th, 2013

We’ve seen plenty of high-end sports cars borrow technology from F1 racing, but a single-seater urban commuter? That’s exactly what you’ll find in the Renault Twizy Sport F1 Concept ($TBA). By borrowing the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) from Renault’s F1 cars, the Twizy Sport can boost nearly 100hp, dashing from 0-62 mph nearly as quickly as the flagship M├ęgane R.S. road car. Other unique features include slick racing tires, a front splitter, side-pods, a huge rear wing, diffuser, and an F1-style rain light. As you might imagine, we wouldn’t expect to see one on the street this year, or the next, or pretty much ever. [via]
