In the world of hot hatchbacks selling 10,000 units is a remarkable landmark to achieve. Renault’s lovely little Twingo RS has just accomplished this goal. The milestone car is a Gordini version.

The sporty version of Twingo has accounted for 1.3 percent of the model’s total sales since its launch in September 2008. Thanks to its fiery 133-horsepower 1.6 16V engine, responsive, agile handling and benchmark braking performance, it has contributed to bringing the world of Renault Sport to an even broader audience. The Gordini R.S. version is emblematic of this success and represents more than 50 percent of the Twingo R.S. sales mix.

The 10,000 units rolled out of the Slovenian plant. The Twingo RS is marketed in some 20 countries across Europe, as well as in South Africa and Japan. In France, Twingo Gordini R.S. has won over a younger clientele and also appeals to more lady buyers.
