Peugeot may be killing off the GTI badge, but another French company, Renault, is reviving one of their badges, Gordini, and will be badging various hot hatches with it.
Rather than being completely new hot hatches, these will be Renaultsport cars, but with many personalization options, a bit like the Ferrari One-to-One program.
The first car to be released under this name will be the Twingo Gordini RS, based on the Renaultsport Twingo 133. This is presumably the car under the cover in the picture above. It will be revealed on November 25th, and will go on sale during the Spring of 2010. A Clio Gordini RS, based on the Renaultsport Clio 200 Cup, will follow a few months after.
Just a shame that these Gordini cars don’t come with some added performance.
