Here is some recent footage from October 2018 of the Renault Twingo R1 that Renaultsport Italy created as an entry level racer a couple of years ago. It is very closely related to the existing GT model and produces the same 110 HP but with a lower top gear:


There are two other short videos available from the same team depicting this narrow and winding hillside circuit which shows the Twingo R1 handles well despite being rear-engined and quite tall. These can be found at:

I have sourced more information about the 2016 Twingo R1 from an Italian website that easily converts to English via my search engine: https://www.gazzetta.it/...9494.shtml?refresh_ce-cp

With the facelifted Twingo due shortly, it is uncertain if Renault will resurrect the Twingo GT or even provide a sportier version at all. I believe that with a few small modifications and rebadging (e.g. GT line rather than Renaultsport) the car could sell better than it has.
