Renault's new Twin'Run concept is out in the open at last, following a series of teasers and tell-all spy photos published in recent months.

With the Twin'Run, Renault has evolved the look of its earlier Twin'Z styling project, while evoking the legend of 1980's Renault 5 Turbo.

Unlike that old meataxe of a light performance hatch, and probably also unlike the next-generation Twingo, this concept is powered by a big 3.5 litre V6.

That big six, sourced from partner Nissan, is pulled straight from the Megane Trophy racer and delivers a red-hot 240kW and 380Nm of torque.

With production reality left at the door, the Twin'Run matches its V6 to a six-speed sequential shifter, a limited-slip differential and a rear-wheel-drive layout.

In the Twin'Run, the longitudinally mid-mounted V6 promises a 0-100km/h time of 4.5 seconds, brought to a halt by 356mm discs and six-piston calipers up front and a 328mm/four-piston setup at the rear.

Of course, you shouldn't expect any of this to feature in the eventual Twingo RS sports model, but, for now, it all makes for a very fine dream.

And, unlike the current Twingo, it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect an Australian debut for this new model.
