Question Renault Twingo V10

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

Re: Renault Twingo V10

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.

Thumbs up Twingo 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..

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?

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

Re: Renault Twingo V10

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.

Re: Renault Twingo V10

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...
