I'm looking for some picture of the rear engined Twigo V10 which was presented at the Paris motorshow in 1994 but my research hasn't been succesfull yet. I found some of scale models but none of the full one. If anyone got any clue on where I could find some that would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Just looked everwhere, i cant find any...

you could just email Renault's press team and ask for one... say you're a journalist, or an artist at university and you need pics for a project. Im sure they'd say yes if you asked nicely :)

You mean the RENAULT Espace F1 with formula 1-V10-engine and 800hp.

Yep! I know it sound crasy but they had this project in mind. However, I think it was only a full scale model, I don't remember them going into the prototype stage like with the espace F1.

I remember a scale model, yes, but never saw a Twingo V10...got pictures of a 4x4 Twingo, a 2.0 16V, a 1.4 gtTurbo, a jet Twingo...but no V10

There certianly was Twingo F1 made some time after Espace F1 was presented.

I saw its picture in the magazine.

Go to www.renault.com, than follow the link contact and send a question after filling the questionaire.

They'll certianly answer you!

Believe it or not there never was any intention by Renault to make even a prototype Twingo V10. I happen to remember that when Renault first showed to the World the Twingo back in 1993 they also had a 1:10 (or thereabouts) scale model of a Twingo V10 on the same stage just for the hell of it! . To quote Autocar it was ''just for laughs''! So this explains why people have only seen scale models of it or read about it but no one has ever seen a picture of a full car even at prototype stage. Renault have a sense of humour that's all! It was never intended for production...just as most 1:1 prototypes we see at shows aren't.. :mad:

This is a negative comment, french people, please look away.

C'est un commentaire négatif, le français, regardent svp loin.

If Renault made a 1:10 scale, then why wouldn't they just make a full size model? Seem's these french companies are getting lazy with their cars. I guess it's from all the cheese and wine...

A Twingo V10? :screwy:

If you ever saw one you'd knew they were joking. It's just impossible:lol:
Strange sense of humour but hey...

Porscheguy : je n'ai pas pu résister à te lire ! ;)

But I don't understand why you're saying that. Look at the current production, there are many interesting French cars today. Some models :
Citroën :
C3, C4, C5, C6, C4 Picasso
Peugeot : 207, 307, 407, 607
Renault : Clio, Mégane, Laguna, Espace

For the concept car, look on the current Mondial of Paris 2006 :
Peugeot 908 RC concept
Citroën C-Métisse
Renault Koléos and Twingo II concept.

twingo is most little than a v10 engine ! Maybe they have tryed to put a twingo on a V10...

And even if i don't look at why wine and cheese are a consequence of the french production i agree to say that there's no dream or passion with the french cars...if they were making good car that s would be known...
