Cup version of Renaultsport Twingo will be available to order from 1st October and the first owners will have their cars in November.

Twingo 133 CUP is praced at £11,795, which is £700 less than Renaultsport Twingo 133. The price is such because the Cup version doesn't have air conditioning, automatic headlamp and wiper operation, extra tinted rear windows and features a one-piece bench in place of the usual independent sliding rear seats.

133 CUP is 4mm lower to the ground, than a regular 133 model. The suspension is stiffer with 10 percent at the front and rear, which provides better handling. The car is equipped with 17-inch wheels are fitted with Continental Sport Contact3 195/40 tyres.

There are two new options now available for both the Renaultsport 133 Cup and Renaultsport 133.  The ‘Black and White' Renault package, which is only £150 includes Glacier White bodypaint with gloss black finish to the door mirrors, rear spoiler and front bumper trims.  Gloss black finish is available for the Cup 17" wheels at £175.

Press Release:

Renaultsport's reputation for producing the very best hot hatchbacks is well recognised and 2009 is turning out to be a vintage year, as the ‘Cup' version of the Twingo Renaultsport 133 becomes the latest model to join the fold.

Following the strategy with the recently-launched Clio Renaultsport 200, the Cup version of its Twingo baby brother provides a more focused driving experience with less equipment and a lower price.

The Twingo Renaultsport 133 Cup is priced at £11,795, £700 less than the standard version.  The Cup does without air conditioning, automatic headlamp and wiper operation, extra tinted rear windows and features a one-piece bench in place of the usual independent sliding rear seats.  Obviously, the Cup suspension pack is fitted as standard.  Normally a £650 option on the regular 133, the Cup version is priced £1,350 less than a similarly-equipped car.

The Cup chassis offers handling to satisfy the demands of the enthusiast, offering optimum body control.  The chassis rides 4mm lower than the standard Renaultsport setting and its lower centre of gravity improves in-corner performance thanks to reduced weight transfer. Tuned damper settings and higher spring rates (10 per cent stiffer front and rear) bring greater performance through improved body control.   Anthracite-coloured 17-inch aluminium alloy wheels are equipped with Continental Sport Contact3 195/40 tyres.

Two new options are now available for both the Renaultsport 133 Cup and Renaultsport 133.  The ‘Black and White' Renault i.d. pack is £150 and offers Glacier White bodywork with gloss black finish to the door mirrors, rear spoiler and front bumper trims.  Gloss black finish is available for the Cup 17" alloys wheels at £175.

The Twingo Renaultsport 133 Cup is available to order from 1st October and first deliveries are expected from November.
