Renault Twingo Hipanema Offers “A Taste Of Brazil”

Joining forces with ethnic jeweler Hipanema, Renault has pulled the covers off a new limited edition of its city car.

Dubbed Hipanema, this Twingo packs a selection of exclusive custom exterior features that include Hipanema graphics, coral side mirror housings, electrically-adjustable, demisting door mirrors, two-tone black wheel trims and a canvas opening sunroof.

Inside, the new edition has received Hipanema-badged front door sills and carpet mats, gloss coral trim for the air vent surrounds, steering wheel and gearshift lever, leather-wrapped steering wheels and a canvnas opening sun roof.

Based on the Zen equipment level, it has standard features that include electric front windows, speed limiter and Connect R&Go radio, with R&Go multimedia application that allows users to connect with their mobile phone to navigate, listen to music, scroll through contact lists, make calls and view car-related data.

Renault offers a choice of four body colors, called Dragee Blue, Éclair Yellow, Cristal White and Etoile Black, from a starting price of €13,700 in France, meaning a saving of €550 ($600). On top of the car, prospective buyers will also get a collection of Hipanema jewelry: necklace, bracelet designed especially for the limited-edition car and a key ring.
