We wish there was a chance in hell of the rear-engined, RWD Renault Twingo going on sale in the USA. We'd love to tune one and turn it into a monstrous little hot hatch. Not everybody is happy with the new Twingo, however. Lapo Elkann, grandson of the great Gianni Agnelli, Fiat Director of Brand Promotion, and brother to Fiat Chairman John Elkann, recently took to Facebook to say, "what do you think about the French copying Fiat 500?!??!!! Renault stop the cheating and be original! #fiat500 #beoriginal #becreative"
What do you think? Is the Renault hopelessly derivative?
