When amateur spy shots first surfaced of a little blue hatchback roaring down the streets of Madrid, we thought it might be a Renault 5 revival – the sky blue city car did have a big "5" written on its doors, after all. Turns out, though, that it is the TwinFun, followup to the recently unveiled Twin'Z and the final offering in Renault's six-stage concept car cycle.

Last year, Renault introduced the Alpine A110-50 concept at the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix; for 2013 it will be the TwinFun taking the spotlight. A three-sentence press release below tells us that it fulfills the 'play' brief in the "life-cycle design strategy." We just want to find out what kind of engine it's got that makes all that glorious noise.

RENAULT IS TO UNVEIL A NEW CONCEPT CAR IN MONACO ON MAY 24

April 26, 2013 -- Like Twin'Z, which was unveiled in Milan, Italy, on April 8, the latest concept car to be designed under the leadership of Laurens van den Acker comes under the 'Play' heading of Renault Design's 'life-cycle' design strategy.

The new car's revelation at the 2013 Monaco F1 Grand Prix will be followed by a series of other dynamic demonstrations at events such as July's Festival of Speed at Goodwood, England.

This concept car was designed and developed entirely by Renault Design as an expression of the brand's passion and an illustration of how different takes on the same small city car are possible.
