RENAULT has slashed the price of its two-seat Wind Roadster to make it the cheapest hard top convertible on the market.

Now priced from £12,995 the 1.2-litre open top model in Dynamique trim is almost £3,000 cheaper than its main rival, the MINI Convertible.

The price cut of £2,215 comes as the French car maker is introducing a new flagship to the Wind line up in the form of two Gordini models.

Fitted with sporty paint jobs including the characteristic Gordini twin stripes, the newcomers are priced from £15,195 for a 1.2-litre version and £16,095 for the 133bhp 1.6-litre Wind.

Those engines are already available in the Wind and performance for the Gordini cars is unchanged with the 1.2-litre capable of 0 to 60mph in 10.5 seconds and the 1.6 managing 9.2.

Fuel consumption is 40.9 for the larger engine and 44.8mpg for the 1.2 with emissions of 159 and 145g/km.

The Gordini versions have cosmetic body tweaks including white door mirrors, grille trim and cowls and 17-inch alloy wheels while inside they feature blue and grey leather seats as well as other bespoke detailing.
