The Twingo GT weighs only 1,000 kg (and even less). It is equipped with a 0.9-litre petrol V3 engine with 110 hp.

Moreover, the 0.9 TCe unit is placed at the rear, the output is sent to the wheels at the back with the help of a manual gearbox. A new gearing was developed specially for this offering. The small engine produces torque of 125 pound-feet.

The automaker will tell us the performance details soon and it has mentioned it should be best-in-class engine response time. Also, the car should accelerate from 0-62 in fewer than 10 seconds. Top speed will stand at 103 mph.

The flagship GT variant also features a more aggressive body. Only this cat receives a new orange hue. There also will be versions available in white, grey or black.

Bespoke 17-inch wheels also come within the package. The company’s engineers have recalibrated the ESP. Besides, the steering and suspension were tweaked.
