2012 Renault Twingo Mauboussin Show Car news, pictures, and information
French luxury: New Twingo Mauboussin show carRenault and Mauboussin, the celebrated Place Vendôme-based Parisian creative jeweller, have prepared a one-off Twingo show car for the Frankfurt Motor Show. The car is presented like a jewel, in the vibrant, colourful setting of a light box.
'Luxury is about making dreams come true; the expression of emotion and excellence. The objective which Renault and Mauboussin set themselves was to provide as many women as possible wîth a chance to realise their automotive dream, wîth the accent on emotion and excellence. Twingo Mauboussin represents the luxury of the present moment. The Parisian creative jeweller and designers from Renault were able give full expression to their respective talent and sensitivity in the choice of the car's colour, the sensuality of its materials and its forms. The result illustrates each partner's quest for liberty. 'Thanks to its Tourmaline Brown bodywork and chocolate-hued interior, Twingo Mauboussin embodies a certain delectable indulgence.By choosing to work wîth Renault, Mauboussin has taken a stand for excellence 'àla française' Alain Némarq (President, Mauboussin).
AS EDGY AS EVER : Interior space and versatility hit the bull's-eye
New Twingo's design combines compact exterior dimensions wîth an impressively spacious interior. The very roomy city car provides 22 centimetres of knee room, which puts it among the §egmènt's very best. Meanwhile, Twingo's reputation has always been sealed through its versatility-featuring separate, independently sliding, 50/50-split rear seats, Twingo is particularly practical, too. Its boot capacity can extend from 230 to 959 dm3, while the numerous cubbies and ingenious solutions available as options combine to make it the perfect partner both for shopping runs and for trips to the country.
Punchy, economical and even more respectful of the environment
The powerplants which feature in the New Twingo range mean it is more than capable of devouring long distances. The 1.2 TCe 100hp engine, which boasts peak torque of 155Nm available from low revs, delivers the driving enjoyment of a larger-capacity engine, but wîth lower fuel consumption. Twingo's flagship engines, like the 1.2 16V 75hp petrol engine or the dCi 75 and dCi 85 diesels, have all benefited from ongoing improvements. Coupled wîth aerodynamic fine-tuning, this work has resulted in significant fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions improvements, yet not to the detriment of driving enjoyment. The 11 fuel consumption for Twingo dCi 75 and 85 (3.4 litres/100km) counts among the most frugal in its class. From 2012, New Twingo will achieve benchmark emissions standards: 85g of CO2/km for the dCi 75 and dCi 85 diesel-powered versions and 102g/km wîth the 1.2 16V 75hp petrol engine. New Twingo is one of the only city cars to be available wîth Euro5 diesel
engines that combine performance and fuel efficiency.
Practical and versatile
Thanks to its platform which is based on that of Clio, New Twingo retains its best-in-class status wîth regard to handling and ride comfort. It has all the qualities of a long-distance tourer and even offers better range. Driving economically, a full tank can ensure a range of up to 1,000km (diesel version) or 750km (petrol). Meanwhile, New Twingo's compact dimensions and nimble handling are ideal for slicing through city traffic, yet it is just as much in its element out of town, too.
In tune wîth its time thanks to a range of multimedia audio systems
All the audio systems in the New Twingo range will feature Bluetooth functionality and audiostreaming wîth ÚSB connectivity as standard. This makes it easy to play digital music, from a player, phone or ÚSB stick. In this area, too, New Twingo delivers the same features as Renault models in other §egmènts. As an option, the audio system can be used as a docking station for the iPhone and latest-generation iPod Touch. This audio system permits the use of GPS navigation thanks to a Renault-developed iPhone application. This app uses Bluetooth to communicate wîth the car and analyses the driver's 'eco-driving' behaviour in real time wîth a view to providing fuel-saving tips.Source - Renault
