Renault Twingo V8 Trophy is an extreme supermini (+video)

Lazereth Renault Twingo V8 fq

French tuners Lazareth Auto Moto have really gone to town in the creation of a unique Renault Twingo. Inspired by the competition Renault Megane Trophy and the Clio V6 Renault Sport, the car features a big ole 3.5-litre Range Rover V8 pumping out 147kW (200hp). The block doesn’t sit under the bonnet but behind the front seats where rear passengers once sat. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Lazareth has kitted the car out with 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped up with Yokohama tyres, wider front and rear tracks, a massive rear diffuser and matt grey exterior paint. The suspension was modified and brakes upgraded.

Interior upgrades include Momo alcantara bucket seats and a sports steering wheel. A centrally-mounted Translogic digital display shows speed, revs per minute, a shift light, lap times and other information.

Check out a short video of the Lazareth Twingo Trophy V8 below and if you’re interested in getting one be ready to stump up €70,000 (NZ$142,500).
