Racing Legend Stirling Moss and His Tiny Twizy
British racing legend Sir Stirling Moss has found the perfect vehicle to fight the congestion in infamously trafficky London: the ultra-compact Renault Twizy, a car so the opposite of a racecar that 14-year-olds in France can drive it.
Having learned of their famous fan, Renault UK has produced an entertaining video of Moss in his not even 8-feet long by 4-feet wide electric daily driver. Moss’s “hot lap” around London is humorously set to the old-timey soundtracks of racing announcers during his epic career.
In the two-minute clip, Moss scoots down narrow streets and around tight corners nimbly, sporting a dapper checkered flag scarf, on his way to get his morning paper. “It’s quick, it’s quiet, it’s cheap to run,” Moss says. “It’s a grand city car.”
