Although I do have some reservations about an ultra light weight vehicle, with a short wheelbase, with an engine flapping out the back power the rear wheels. I fear the Twingo may be circle happy if you know what I mean...

I heard about titanium being used in cars in the future. Could this be something we can expect to be in a vehicle like this in the next 5-7 years?

Maybe, there's also been a big push towards aluminium and magnisium to a lesser degree although mag is PRICEY.

the cost of carbon fiber is coming down drastically, and BMW has actually just created what they call secondary CFRP. Which is left over carbon bits from manufacturing mixed with plastic to make a material light as magnesium but stronger than aluminium or something like that...

yea it would be nice to compare their weights to see which one is the lightest or heaviest.

Yes the twingo has the greater boot volume, it's not as deep but it is a lot longer becuase the whole passenger area is moved forward to fit the engine. In reality carrying capacity will be much the same, just that where as you would likely stand up a suit case in the c1/108 you would lay it flat in the twingo
