MONACO — The Renault Twin'Run concept, which may preview a new version of the Renault R5 Turbo, debuted today at the 2013 Monaco Grand Prix.

Renault describes the concept as "a real racing car," that features a tubular chassis lifted from motorsport competition and a midengine 320-horsepower V6 engine based on the Megane Trophy racer. The engine is linked to a six-speed sequential transmission.

Renault said the Twin'Run concept picks up "where the famous R5 Turbo and Clio V6 left off."

The Twin'Run concept sprints from zero-62 mph in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph. It has a curb weight of 2,094 pounds, largely due to its fiberglass body panels and carbon-fiber parts, including the roof, wheel arches and rear vent.

The exterior gets a blue paint treatment with red touches. The "5" on the doors refers to the R5 Turbo, an iconic 1980s rally car.

Cabin touches include Sparco seats with safety harnesses, aluminum pedals and red pressure gauges, another nod to the R5 Turbo.

Edmunds says: Renault taps into its rallying heritage with the Twin'Run concept.
