Renault will peel away the curtain on its Gordini version of its diminutive Wind roadster at the Geneva Motor Show next month. The Wind Gordini, though technically a performance version of Renault's subcompact roadster, is expected to be powered by the automaker's fuel-efficient 1.6-liter gasoline engine that cranks out 131 horsepower.

The Gordini version features 17-inch alloy wheels, Malta blue bodywork, a pair of white racing stripes, Glacier white exterior mirrors, a glossy black roof, a sporty rear spoiler and 'G' badging throughout. On the inside, the Wind Gordini receives two-tone leather upholstery and a blue and white trim package.

In addition to the Wind, Renault's Gordini moniker is attached to the Twingo and Clio models. Come 2013, the automaker plans to launch a high-output version of the electric Zoe hatchback, which will most likely be fitted with the Nissan Leaf's powertrain and bear the Gordini tag.
