Girls Aloud star designs Renault Twingo recording studio

The feminine take on the new small car comes from the mind of Girls Aloud singer Nicola Roberts, who was asked to design a one-off version of the car to represent her lifestyle.

This meant a mini recording studio to replace the back seats, a coffee-making machine and even a hair dryer to replace the usual accessories such as air conditioning and satellite navigation.

In the front, a dashboard is replaced with a make-up counter while a portable music player is also included in the front.

The one-off may not be road-worthy, but it will join other designs from people such as French fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and Italian Chef Davide Scabin in a ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ scheme to showcase the new car.

Roberts said: “In my New Twingo Cabinet of Curiosities, as in my latest album, I have strived to blend my dreams and emotions with my personal, very defined vision of reality.”

This is all to celebrate the launch of the new Renault Twingo, the smallest car in the French manufacturer’s range.

Set to arrive early this year, the Twingo has been completely revamped with the new Renault front end first showcased on the stunning DeZir electric supercar concept.

It will be the first car to use the new design and improves on previous versions with a host of customisable interior and exterior options – although a coffee machine is not included.

Prices for the new Renault Twingo have not been announced but it is expected to have low running costs courtesy of Renault’s low-CO2 petrol and diesel engines, while fans of sportier cars will get an RS version in future.

The new Renault Twingo will arrive in Renault UK dealerships early in 2012.
