Renault Zoe e-Sport concept unveiled in Geneva

The Renault Zoe e-Sport sports car concept has been unveiled at the 2017 Geneva motor show. Although the design is clearly related to the showroom-spec Zoe, the e-Sport has a tubular steel chassis used by Renault Sport for hill climb and ice races, and its exterior body panels are crafted from carbon-fibre. Compared to the road-going Zoe, the e-Sport also has a wider front and rear track, a subtly aggressive body kit, deleted door handles, and race car-style wing mirrors.
