The Renault Sport R.S. 01 is the French automaker’s statement of intent to re-enter motor sports will full force. The design is inspired by the world of concept cars and the pursuit of aerodynamic downforce, boasting a carbon fiber monocoque and a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6, generating more than 500 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. Power is channeled to the rear axle through a seven-speed Sadev sequential gearbox, resulting in a top speed of 186 mph. Weighing in at less than 1,100 kg, the R.S. 01 rides on 18-inch Braid wheels wrapped in specially developed Michelin tires. Finally, the vehicle is completely developed to LMP1 safety standards and will take part in the 2015 Renaultsport Trophy, as part of the World Series by Renault.
