 Pros Safety features that provide safety both on the road and on the track are standard instead of optional. There are additional airbags that are optional, but passengers are protected with the standard airbags as well.

 Pros The Gordini R.S. is customizable in terms of color styles and select features that are not already standard. Because there are very few features that are not already available, most custom options are cosmetic.

 Pros Performance is great. Designed for the sharp curves of the race track, handling the curves on the highway is a breeze for any driver.

 Pros For those individuals that are looking for a racing vehicle there is an option of a race course designed to teach drivers exactly how to handle the Gordini R.S. before they even get it to the track. There is a fee that is usually already included in the purchase price.

 Pros There is room for every day errands when using it as a street car instead of a racecar. With seat that can be folded there is plenty of room to get everything done that needs to be.

 Pros Reasonably priced to make this model more affordable for everyone that wants the opportunity to own a classic looking race vehicle meant for traveling to and from the office as well as for the race track.

 Cons There is not a whole lot of lighting in the car because of the darkly tinted windows in the back. There is an optional sunroof that can be added, but the dark tint counteracts the lighting coming from the roof.

 Cons Not roomy enough for more than a few passengers. The Renault Twingo Gordini R.S. only has four seats including the driver's. Although the back seats are individually moveable and foldable, carrying luggage may also mean forfeiting a passenger because of the limited space.
