The French car manufacturer is sponsoring the Yellow Color Zone of the UK series of THE COLOR RUN global events, where thousands of runners start the course in a white T-shirt and are covered in a rainbow of colours throughout the course.
Taking place at the heart of five nationwide cities that span Brighton to Glasgow and kicking off in London at Wembley Park on 12 June, THE COLOR RUN is all about having fun with friends and family and enjoying a truly colourful experience. The events are untimed and participants are invited to complete the course however they wish, be it running, walking, skipping, dancing or even cartwheeling.
For 2016, THE COLOR RUN is bringing the theme of an island holiday to each venue with its Tropicolor Tour, transforming the locations into bustling hives of fun, music and colour. The famous 'Color Throws' will welcome participants across the line in a frenzy of colour and the fun will continue at the Finish Festival with entertainment from a mix of DJs and MCs.
As well as sponsoring the yellow section of each course in homage to the vibrant colour of its iconic badge, Renault will be adding more colour to each city's event with the display of the new Twingo THE COLOR RUN Special Edition.
Based on the Twingo Play version, that features air conditioning, daytime running lights, electric front windows, DAB tuner with Bluetooth®, AUX and USB connectivity, and the R&GO application that turns any compatible smartphone into an infotainment and navigation system, the Twingo THE COLOR RUN Special Edition adds an electric panoramic fabric folding sunroof, 15-inch 'Exception' alloy wheels, THE COLOR RUN-exclusive floor mats and the choice of any compatible Exterior Touch Pack and Interior Style Pack, which add colour coordinated details to the inside and outside of the striking city car.
Powering the Twingo is the SCe 70 petrol engine, the three-cylinder, 999cc engine in the Twingo THE COLOR RUN Special Edition returns fuel economy of 56.6mpg (Combined) and emits 112g/km CO2.
Compared to a Twingo Play specified with the same extras, the Twingo THE COLOR RUN Special Edition offers a customer saving of £800. The Twingo THE COLOR RUN Special Edition is priced from £10,495 and is available to order now.
The Twingo is connected to the outside world through the standard smartphone-operated R&GO application that turns any compatible smartphone into a touchscreen infotainment system including a sat-nav, or Renault's optional R-Link multimedia system with seven-inch touchscreen.
As with all new Renaults, Twingo is covered by a four-year warranty that offers unlimited-mileage cover in the first two years and then two further years of protection up to 100,000 miles. Four years Renault Assistance cover is also included.Renault Twingo to receive EDC gearbox
