Autotriti, a Greek automotive website, is reporting that Renault has a surprise up its sleeve for the Frankfurt Motor Show. That surprise is said to be a Twingo Coupe + Cabriolet. Visual differences between the C+C and the Twingo hatchback will be extensive -- so much so that the instrument panel could be the only carryover. Mechanically, it will share very much with the hatchback (platform, powertrains, etc.). In lieu of a complex, folding roof, a hinged unit will revolve back, a la the Ferrari Superamerica, where it will be stowed in (or atop, perhaps?) the cargo area. It would be built in France, and not Slovenia like the hatchback, and according to the Autotriti report, a €15,000 price tag would be attached. Until Renault says something to confirm this, take it with a grain of salt. Click the "Read" link to visit the Autotriti website, which has three renderings of what might be on taps for Frankfurt.

      I certainly wouldn't want one.

      But it's a cool piece of packaging. I bet it has a nice big trunk, and all that's sacrificed is what would be unusable back seat in a convertible this small.

      This would make sense. Since Peugeot sells the 207CC for around 18.000€ Renault started to sell the larger Mégane CC for the same price (BTW: that price includes 18 to 20% VAT). At least this base price it is impossible to make money with it. So a Clio CC or an even simpler Twingo CC would make some sense. I doubt that the roof will be like in the article mentioned, but I am sure they have something similar in their pipeline.
