Renault unveils Twizy Sport F1 Concept image

Renault has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the Twizy Sport F1 Concept, which has absolutely no chance of hitting the production line.

The Renault Twizy Sport F1 Concept has started its life a few days ago, when the French based automaker has released the first teaser images with it. Now the model is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker officially pulling the wraps off its body. The Renault Twizy Sport F1 Concept has been turned into this monster by Renaultsport and Renaultsport F1 engineers, who have teamed up in order to implement some technologies form Formula 1 on a road car.

Renault says that the Twizy Sport F1 Concept has the KERS system, which has added an extra 30 kg (66 lbs), and the model is now a single-seater. The KERS is storing the energy lost during braking in the battery, which has been fitted where the rear seat would normally be. The model now has an extra 79 HP (59 kW) and it’s coming with a steering wheel inspired from Formula Renault, a “boost” button, which is allowing it to reach 68 mph (109 km/h) at 10,000 rpm and the power-to-weight ratio has been improved at 1 HP / 5.8 kg, compared to the regular version’s 1 HP / 25 kg. The Renault Twizy Sport F1 Concept will remain a one-off vehicle.
