    I've just received an email invitation which says you can win an iPhone if you go for a test drive with the new Twingo in September. Maybe it's a typo and they meant iPod, but you never know.

    Doubt it'd be a typo because surely these things get check lots before they are released.

    Shame i won't be around in September otherwise i would definitly test drive a Twingo.

    I had an old one and they are fun cars, but on the iPhone front, I wonder if this means the UK release is coming soon.

    It is coming soon, there has been a crescendo of rumors and reports. The annoying thing is i think i'll be out of the country when it happens.

    I'm wondering if it'll be announced at the same time as the new iPods are released? All signs point to a September date for that, why not mention iPhone availability at the same event?
    And then watch as my card goes up in smoke at an iPod & iPhone purchase :eek::D

    Think they would have to guarantee that I win a good shed load of iPhones for me to even test drive that car!!!

    Sorry about that but Im a bit of a petrol head!!! Those things are hideous!!!

    Being seen in something like that to me would be tough even if I was guaranteed an iPhone at the end of it with a free 18 month contract and it was delivered to me in a gold box by Steve Jobs himself!!!

    Sounds like someone in the UK is gonna get lucky though!!! :)

    I'd quite like a Twingo and an iPhone, but am moving to Germany for work in the new year so there's little point buying either in the UK even if I could afford such luxuries. But I'll go for a test drive anyway! I miss my old Twingo.

    I actually forgot to load the pictures in the email, and it indeed does show an iPhone.

    I suppose an easy get out got them would be simply say "we'll provide the iPhone to the winner as soon as it's released"....
    Everyone knows its coming, and the time frame, so if they run the competition for those 10 days, and have a month of so before they announce the winner throw in a little bit of admin time.... and before you know it, it's December. Easy to play it safe.

    still, it's nice marketing that's obvious working from this thread!

    And I kinda like the new Twingo. Always had a soft spot for the old model from a time in Paris....

    When I think about it, I only signed up on their site because of an ad here on MacRumors, where they've been advertising for ages. I wonder if that is part of their plan. Advertise on Mac sites, and get the Mac users in with the iPhone. Clever if so.

    So small, but so quick. And really quite roomy inside. I think the new one has lost some of the quirkiness.
