Mid-engined Renaults: Picture gallery

You've seen the new Renault TwinRun - here's a gallery of Renault's previous efforts at overpowered and outrageous mid-engined hatchbacks

Renault has just revealed a new concept in Monaco, a mad V6-powered supermini called the TwinRun. The 316bhp baby Renault previews the next Twingo, and stays true to the company's history of producing wild versions of its normally very practical hatchbacks.

It's a tradition reaching back over 30 years, to the birth of the Renault 5 Turbo in 1980. Like most of the cars here, it was conceived to go racing - and in this case rallying. Which is your favourite?
