Now this is the kind of hatchback we like to drive around the city! This is a first generation Renault Twingo which has been heavily modified by French tuner Lazareth. As you notice many things have been changed in this car, but the chief of changes is found in the engine bay, where you found nothing! That is because the tuner has installed a new engine right in the middle of the car where normally back seats are placed!
And what kind of engine they’ve put in there? Well it’s a V8, a 3.5 liter small block V8 from an old Range Rover. However, despite being a V8, this engine in its standard form has only 180 hp. Of course Lazareth has tweaked it but do not expect Focus RS kind of power! Even 180 hp is quit a lot in a Twingo, a car which is the size of a shoe!
Twingo V8’s body modifications are pretty clear, so no need to talk about them. We should only point out that it has 18-inch wheels with Yokohoma tires, and race-prep’d interior.
Of course you can’t take this car seriously, it’s more of a joke! But as a technical exercise you have to say it’s brilliant!
