Published by on May 28, 2013 in News Leave a comment

The good news is that it is absolutely beautiful. The bad news is that it will never be produced. The Renault Twin’Run concept has been created by the French carmaker in cooperation with Tork Engineering/Poclain Vehicules (a company specialized in racing chassis). The concept is heavily inspired from motorsport, featuring a tubular chassis and being powered by a modified version of the Megane Trophy engine, that delivers 320-hp. The Twin’Run’s first public appearance took place this weekend, at the Formula One race in Monaco.

“Twin’Run is a cocktail of energy, passion and athleticism, rekindling the memory of emblematic Renault racing cars. Following its twin, Twin’Z, a stylish urban concept car, Twin’Run shows that personalisation is a core strategy at Renault,” said Laurens van den Acker, Senior Vice President and head of design for Renault. And even though the concept will never see a production line ever, Renault says that it does offer a glimpse of the company’s future design direction.

The V6 engine powering the Twin’Run concept has a 3,498 cmc displacement and delivers 320-hp at 6,800 rpm, while peak torque is 380 Nm at 4,850 Nm. And just like Renault’s racing models, the Twin’Run is equipped with a six-speed Sadev sequential transmission. And these is not everything this concept shares with racing, because it also features a twin metallic clutch, air intakes vents at the level of rear wheel arches and aluminum pipes for the cooling system.
