Renault Twingo CC
Here is the open-top version of the Twingo, which is preparing to do battle with the Opel Tigra and Peugeot 207 CC in the entry-level segment
The drop-top Twingo CC is a two-seater with a one-piece retractable hardtop, rather than the common cloth top, providing all-weather protection and safety as well as summer sun and fun. It'll share the Twingo's 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine, but get a boost in performance to about 120bhp. It'll also be one of the least expensive ways to go topless.
First false reports accompanied by fake renderings put the Twingo CC concept debut at Frankfurt 2007. Then a production version was expected at last year's Paris motor show, and again at Geneva, but the Twingo CC remains a no-show, apart from the test mules we've seen so far. We're not sure what's holding the car up – word on the street suggests that there are engineering issues with the retractable hardtop delaying the launch.
