Introduced at the 71st Monaco Grand Prix, Twin'Run is Renault's latest concept car. A true heir to the R5 Turbo and Clio V6, it is an overboosted concept that illustrates the "Play" petal of Renault's new design strategy. This little hot hatch was driven by Renault COO Carlos Tavares, on the Monaco circuit. It introduces the future of Renault superminis. It was racing with an R5 Turbo, driven by the great Jean Ragnotti, and a Clio V6, driven by Charles Pic (Caterham F1 Team driver).
