The French based automaker Renault has officially presented the Twizy F1 Concept to the public in Valladolid, Spain.
After it was officially unveiled almost a month ago, the Renault Twizy F1 Concept is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker making its public debut, in Valladolid, Spain. The model in question has been turned into a monster by Renaultsport and Renaultsport F1 engineers, who have teamed up in order to implement some technologies from Formula 1 on a road car, even if this road car will simply remain a concept.
The Renault Twizy F1 Concept is coming with the KERS system, which has added an extra 30 kg (66 lbs) to the single-seater. The KERS can store the energy lost during braking in the battery and it has been fitted where the rear seat would normally be. The Twizy F1 Concept now has an extra 79 HP (59 kW) and it can reach 68 mph (109 km/h) at 10,000 rpm. The model has a steering wheel inspired from Formula Renault, a boost button and a 1 HP / 5.8 kg power-to-weight ratio, compared to the standard car’s 1 HP / 25 kg.
