Renault gets creative and ambitious with its latest efforts to realize a a souped-up electric city car. The Twizy Sport F1 is designed to crank up the performance of your average electric car with its kinetic energy recovery system (KERS), similar to that used in its formula 1 race cars. The result is six times the power output — almost 100 horsepower — which pushes the car from 0-62 in the same time as the Renault Mégane Renaultsport 265. As for the exterior, the futuristic Twizy looks like a curious mix between a smart car, lunar rover, and bobcat construction vehicle and features a front splitter, side-pods, rear wing, and a diffuser with an F1-style rain light. This light is controlled with a colorful gamepad-like steering wheel on the inside, which also controls the KERS, radio and rain light. This concept most likely will never be released so enjoy the pictures.
