A Renault Twizy with a moustache has been recently outfitted and donated to the Mercury Phoenix Trust, a charity which is raising money to combat AIDS.
A recent fundraiser which managed to raise 250,000 GBP for the cause, called “Freddie For a Day”, was held at The Savoy Hotel and the electric vehicle with a moustache managed to get 7,000 GBP. The Renault Twizy in question is one of a kind and it’s coming with a unique paintjob, with optional scissor doors and some other extra features, including the moustache which is meant to remind us of former Queen vocalist and lyricist, who passed away in 1991.
As a quick reminder, the Renault Twizy is available in two versions, the Twizy 45, which is coming with 5 HP and33 Nm of torque, taking its name from its top speed, 45 km/h, and the Twizy 80, which can accelerate up to 80 km/h. Renault says that for the Twizy 45, no driver’s license is required and this version can be driven by 16-year olds if they get their road safety certification first, while the for the Twizy 80, an A or B driver’s license is required. The Twizy is 2,32 meters long, 1,19 meters wide and 1,46 meters tall, with a curb weight of 450 kg. The model has a 7 kW lithium-ion battery and a single gear transmission and it can be bought for just under 7,000 euros. The model is assembled in Valladolid, Spain.
