Thought Renault's Twizy couldn't get more French? Here's one covered in macarons

Sat, 17 Nov 2012 16:04:00 EST While we were in Las Vegas covering the 2012 SEMA Show, sweeter teeth had converged upon France's capital city for the annual Salon du Chocolat, otherwise known as the Paris Chocolate Show. Renault brought a little automotive flair to the this year's show by teaming with French pastry chef Pierre Hermé to create a Renault Twizy covered with macarons.

In a two-day process, 1,700 of the Oreo-like pastries-weighing around 50 pounds in total-were individually glued onto the high-calorie show car's bodywork and wheel covers.

Scroll down to watch how this tasty Twizy was created.
