My RenaultSport Twingo Gordini

Well my Twingo 133 Gordini which is just coming up for it's first birthday. For those of you not familiar with it, the car has a 1.6 16v 131bhp engine. With this being the Gordini edition, number 110 and one of only 200 in the UK, it has a full leather interior, white Gordini stripes and white detailing.

Here's how she was when I first got her -















Few more recent shots -









And now almost a whole 12 months after getting the car, here's how she stands.















The standard wheels are hideously expensive and now being stored in my loft after having been cleaned, de-tarred and polished.
