Renault's electric concept teased last week has turned out to be this: a bonkers F1-inspired version of the unique Twizy EV.

Enhanced by Renault's famed RenaultSport racing and performance arm, the Twizy RS F1 concept adds a host of styling, aerodynamics and power tweaks.

Riding on a set of giant racing slicks, the Twizy RS F1 is kept planted by a front splitter, rear diffuser, side pods and a sizeable wing.

The concept still looks to electricity for power, but this time features the Kinetic Energy Recovery System from Renault's F1 cars.

In the Twizy, the system boosts output by a factor of six, increasing from 17 horsepower to a relatively huge 97hp (72kW).

When activated, the KERS system's increased output is available for 14 seconds, giving the Twizy RS F1 concept a 0-100km/h time of 6.0 seconds - matching the hot Megane RS 265.

Other features include a Formula Renault steering wheel and, at the rear, a Formula Renault rain light. Renault also cut the rear seat from the Twizy in order to accommodate the KERS system.

Production future, you ask? No, it's fair to say we won't see this one in production.
