It does look like Freddie Mercury this thing, doesn’t it? This moustached Renault Twizy was designed as an homage to the legendary artist, and also to help raise fund for his charity organization fighting AIDS. The electric compact two-seater raised £7,000 during the annual Mercury Phoenix Trust event at The Savoy in London.You know it’s the best use for a Twizy we can think of!
The city runabout is not a very brilliant transportation solution. It has a range of up to 60 miles on a full charge which takes just three and a half hours, which is not bad for what it is. But driving around in one of these is like driving around in a G-Wiz. Not a good look.
About the Event: Freddie For A Day is now in its third year and is the worldwide celebration of the life and legend of Freddie Mercury. Last year’s FFAD, highlighted in London with a wall to wall celebrity evening also at The Savoy Hotel, saw more than £250,000 raised through celebrity and fan based events and contributions, all of which was channelled through the Mercury Phoenix Trust.
Renault UK’s Managing Director, Thierry Sybord, who attended the high-profile occasion, said: “We are very proud to support Freddie For A Day and happy to donate such an eye-catching Twizy to the charity. It looked incredible with its moustache on the front and wrapped in the design of the iconic ‘Live Magic Freddie’ yellow jacket and white trousers outfit he famously wore at Wembley Stadium in 1986. The Mercury Phoenix Trust is doing a great job in educating and raising awareness of HIV and AIDS in the areas of the world where it is most needed and Renault is delighted to be involved with such a worthy charity.” Those people who are fretting that they might have HIV, can always go to reliable professionals who offer services such as hiv antibody test.
