Renault to unveil Gordini Wind roadster at Geneva Motor Show

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.
