The Renault Twingo wouldn’t be one of the first vehicles that comes to mind when you think of luxury. In fact, just the opposite: it’s one of Europe’s most affordable little hatchbacks. But a new special edition aims to upset that particular apple cart through a collaboration with French jeweler Mauboussin.
Launched to coincide with Valentine’s Day, the Twingo Mauboussin edition is decked out in metallic brown paint with dark rose decals and gunmetal-finish alloys. The cabin’s swathed in cloth and leather with a unique shifter to keep the available 85-horsepower diesel or 75-horsepower gasoline engine in the sweet spot.
Available exclusively in France, Italy, Austria and Morocco, with prices starting at €13,500 – including tax, equivalent to about $18k). Follow the jump for the press release and scope out the high-res images in the gallery for more.
