The D-Type engine was a
straight-4 automobileengine from Renaultdesigned to replace the venerable Renault Cléon enginein the Renault Twingo.
First produced in July 1996, the D7F displaced nominal 1.2 L (1149 cc/70 in³) and produced 60 hp (45 kW) at 5250 rpm and 93 N·m (69 ft·lbf) at 2500 rpm. It had sequential multipoint
The D7D was a 1.0 L (999 cc/70 in³) version.
The D7F was replaced by the D4F in December 2000. It was the same displacement but added 16-valve heads for 75 hp (56 kW) at 5500 rpm and 105 N·m (77 ft·lbf) at 3500 rpm.
In an effort to produce a cost-effective fuel efficient engine Renault introduced a turbocharged version of the D4F, the D4FT, in 2007. Renault named it the 1.2 TCE (Turbo Control Efficiency).This engine features revised 16-valve heads and stronger internals to handle the higher stress caused by turbocharging, resulting in 101 hp (74 kW) at 5500 rpm -with built in overboost temporarily increased to 105 hp in second,third and fourth gear - and 145 Nm at 3000 rpm.
