The Twizy is Renault’s electric mini car, sold over seas. It fits two passengers riding tandem and has a 17 hp engine. The Renault Twizy Sport F1 Concept ($TBA) is a souped up version of that car using systems from their F1 racer. Such as Renault’s Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), which provides a power boost from the standard 17 horses to 97 hps. Now the boost is only available for 14 seconds but that should be plenty to tear it up. Even the steering wheel is taken directly from the Formula Renault 3.5 race car.
