Renaultsport R.S. 01 makes its track debut in Spain

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 22, 2014

The Renaultsport R.S. 01 race car made its debut in Moscow back in August with the announcement of the World Series by Renault. Few days ago the Renaultsport R.S. 01 made its track debut at the Jerez racetrack in Spain and at the wheel was no other than Alain Prost. The well-known French driver was impressed by the vehicle’s performances and said that this is a new step forward for Renault.

The first deliveries will be made in March 2015 but over 58,000 spectators were able to hear the distinctive sound and see the dynamic qualities of the R.S. 01 during its first demonstration.

If you don’t remember, you better know that the R.S. 01 is powered by the same engine as the Nissan GT-R, a 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo that produces 500 hp and 600 Nm of torque. Moreover, the engine is bolted to a seven-speed gearbox developed by Sadev.

According to Renault, the racing car arrives with a new suspension design featuring a conventional double wishbone layout adopted with pushrods and Ohlins dampers. Moreover, it arrives with 18-inch wheels that hide the 380 mm carbon brake discs developed by PFC Brakes with six-piston calipers.
