The new Reanultsport RS 01 racing car was revealed in Moscow Motor Show with official photos. The new racing car boasts 493bhp. It is built around carbon monocoque to reduce the overall body weight below 1,100 KG. It can hit the top speed of 186mph.
It is purely a racing sports car set to participate in Renaultsport Trophy in 2015 as a part of World Series by Renault.
It is not based on any previous models, but it is very similar to Renault DeZir all electric vehicle in the looks. According to Renault CEO, “a marriage between the beauty of Renault DeZir and the performance of Formula Renault 3.5.”
It might be due to the fact that both the cars are designed by Vice President of Design Lauren Van den Acker. The low body design doesn’t just looks well; it also plays a part in directing air around the car. The huge wing helps in increasing the down force.
It is powered by 3.8 litre V6 twin turbo engine derived from Nissan GT-R producing 439bhp. It is purely built to run on the race track to compete professionally.
There is no announcement for the road car. However, many would love to own the road car based on Reanultsport RS 01.
