Scoop: New Renault TwinFun Concept Looks Like a Modern Day 5 Turbo [w/Videos]

|

A never-before seen Renault concept named TwinFun or TwinRun (we can't make out the fifth letter on the name placed on the tailgate), has been captured on camera while it was being filmed for what we assume to be a promo clip in the city of Madrid in Spain.

While you will be forgiven to mistake it for a Gallic Fiat 500, the presence of the mid-engine Renault 5 Turbo from the early 1980s in one of the pictures explains where the French carmaker drew its inspiration for the three-door hatch.

At this time, we have no official information on the small Renault hatch, but we're thinking it could be a concept for the next Twingo, which is being co-developed with Mercedes-Benz's Smart division, sharing its underpinnings with the new ForTwo – something that would explain its size, and the side vents that suggests it has a rear-mounted engine and rear-wheel drive.
