“Twizy Renault Sport F1 is a racy EV that defies categorization”
It recently came out that Porsche mulled a return to Formula One but chose a return to Le Mans instead, citing F1 technology’s lack of relevance to its road cars. Well Porsche, take this: the Twizy Renault Sport F1 concept, “a bridge between the world of F1 technology and that of production cars.” The French Formula One legend took a 17-horsepower electric Twizy and replaced the back seat with an 80-hp KERS unit, just like the ones it produces for its F1 customer teams. Then it added tires from a Formula 2 Renault and a steering wheel derived from a Formula 3.5 Renault, a front splitter, sidepods and open-wheeler mirrors. Yes, it’s absurd – and by absurd we mean outstanding.
