The Renaultsport Twingo Gordini is little more than a styling package for the Twingo 133 Cup. The Gordini name revives a moniker which was first used in the 1960's during the time of Amédée Gordini, a man who developed almost 200,000 Renault vehicles over a 20-year period, and achieved some of the brand's greatest sporting achievements.

Like the classic Gordini models, the 2010 Twingo Gordini Renaultsport employs the same striking blue and white livery - although it is also available in a pearlescent black finish. Other exterior changes include gloss black front and rear bumper inserts, white colored accents - including mirror housings and fog light surrounds, 17-inch alloy wheels with a polished face and painted inner rim matched to the body color, and extra tinted rear windows.

Inside, the Twingo Gordini Renaultsport gets even more Gordini-ness with a blue and black steering wheel with white stripes, blue gearlever gaiter and Gordini-badged gearlever knob, blue rev-counter with white surround, blue leather door panel inserts, 'Gordini' floor mats, and there's even an optional Gordini key fob.

There are no changes to the engine or drivetrain meaning the Twingo Gordini gets the same 133 horsepower, 1.6 litre, 4-cylinder engine as the Twingo 133. The car can be specified with or without the 'Cup' chassis option which offers a lower ride height and stiffer springs and dampers.

Overall it's a nice looking little hot hatch - although those stripes look a little tacky. But Renault have made such a fuss over the return of the Gordini badge it's a shame they haven't made more significant chassis and drivetrain enhancements in order to do the name more justice.
