The Brazilian Renault Fluence GT packs a whopping 180 hp
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
The Sao Paulo Motor Show is on and we are seeing manufacturers revealing some shiny new wares.
Renault Brazil has unveiled a more powerful version of the Fluence called the Renault Fluence GT.
The Renault Fluence GT is powered by a 2.0-liter 16V turbocharged petrol engine generating a healthy 180 horsepower. Thanks to the twin scroll turbo, the Fluence GT can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/hr in under 8 seconds and keeps pulling till it hits the top speed of 220 km/hr.
Pure go and no show is clearly not acceptable. The Fluence features some exquisite styling details too.
