French car maker Renault has released pictures of the retouched Wind Gordini on their Facebook page, which is expected to be launched at the Geneva Motor Show. With this Renault will be expanding the Gordini Lineup as well as coupe-roadster range.

It will most probably be powered by standard Wind’s 1.2 Liter Turbocharged engine making an adequate 100 PS (74 kW/ 99 hp) and a naturally breathing 1.6 Liter engine developing 133 PS (98 kW / 131 hp).

The new Wind Gordini features sport suspension and a classic blue and white paint job just like Twingo and Clio RS. Renault Wind Gordini comes with 17-inch black diamond alloy wheels, glacier white door mirrors, grille trim, rear wing and glossy black roof.

Interior-wise, Wind Gordini features black and blue leather upholstery, blue and white door straps and steering wheel, and a gear lever with a leather gaiter and metal knob with the Gordini name.

Renault Wind only takes 12 seconds to open/close its roof, two times faster than the set standards for its class. By cleverly stowing the roof panel below the boot lid, the purity of the exterior design can be maintained and the amount of useful boot space is unchanged, whether the roof is up or down. A boot cover protects the roof from dust and water when in the open position.

Overall Wind Gordini uses the best equipment available and as a unit will be one of the best in the convertible segment.
