On one side of the Renault Twizy ledger you have a mid-engined, rear-wheel drive "coupe" with instant torque and a RenaultSport-tuned suspension. On the other, you have the equivalent of 17 horsepower. None of those figures would keep Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe from getting to the bottom line, which was to see if he could make the Twizy drift.

Before you ask, no, the video does not contain any electronic music nor a panda in a suit. But it's still worth watching the segment below. As an added bonus, we've included a video of the scissor-doored city car hooking up on the dyno, as well.

      Was there ever any doubt? There are exceptionally talented children on YouTube that are drifting 4hp PowerWheels.

      I think drift possibility depends much on the surface not a car's bhp or size.

      I'd rather have a street legalized golf cart. More practical, and you can carry stuff in the ones with the flip-down seats. Less expensive, easier to service, and more attractive to the opposite sex. * * You can let a dog ride in it, and everyone knows dogs are chick magnets. Except the kind that maul people. Chicks do like puppies though. And kittens, but it's not as easy to keep them from falling out.

      How many times can we prove torque > power?

      I was in Cannes on my honeymoon this past May, and the Film Festival was just starting up that weekend. Renault, in the stereotypical "pander to the Hollywood environmental elites" mentality, had a bunch of them lined up in the parking garage below the festival facilities as demo and courtesy vehicles. The wife thought they were cute but didn't want to try driving one in actual traffic. For me, though, the juxtaposition of a bunch of electric Twizzys (and a few Fluence sedans) in one row with a Ferrari 599, Bentley Mulsanne, Rolls Drophead, and too many Range Rovers to count (plus a few Escalades for good measure) just made me giggle.
