Did anyone see this? - http://cars.uk.msn.com/news/royal-household-takes-delivery-of-one-off-renault-twizy#scpshrtu

Can’t believe they’ve got that number plate! I’m sure I would have seen that when I was searching for mine back in June! Then again I may have omitted it from my search because it had 2 Zs in it :rolleyes:

It should have gold writing on it to complete the Harrods trim :cool:

Apparently it’s “a distinctive British Racing Green”

Just noticed this is the same car…unless they sold the plate.

Excellent posting-interesting to see this :wink:

As I said on:http://www.twizyowners.com/showthread.php/309-Twizy-sales-bucking-the-trend-and-looking-good

“…The Twizy is easy to alter/modify, so why not offer a UK model with standard doors and windows with a tie in to a well loved British company; eg send over grey Urbans with doors, flaps and windows and have a UK firm do a partial wrap (e.g the doors and some stickers) to make it UK edition. Barbour? National Trust edition??..”

This might be what Renault needs to set up a UK special edition to help UK sales-do a similar special edition with standard doors and windows and call it something to do with London or loosely linked to the Royals.

Well spotted, I knew I’d seen it once before-we mentioned it in the private plates thing IIRC

Some more pics on:

It has the windows and doors…

Plate transferred-the one above is a Colour, the Royal one is a Technic with the white seat

In which case I wonder how much they sold the plate for lucky buggers

I guess the plate belongs to Renault and they put it on this as part of a PR deal along with the placement of the Twizy…
