In a car body 3.68 meters long, 1.75 meters high and 1.48 meters wide Renault TwinRun hides a very sporty soul, thanks to the 3.5 liter V6 engine by Nissan already employed on Megane Trophy.

The engine delivers 320 horsepower and torque of 380 Nm at 4.850 rpm and allows the TwinRun to take from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds, reaching a top speed of 250 km / h and ensuring a remarkable balance thanks to a practically neutral weight distribution between front and rear.

The transmission is assigned to a 6 speed sequential gearbox with limited slip differential while the equipment includes aluminum pedals, steering wheel and sport seats and an LCD screen of 5.5 inches on which the driver can view important data on any operation. It is still unclear however, if the TwinRun will arrive at the stage of production in series.
