The brand new Renault Sport R.S. 01 has recently made its public debut as it has lapped the Circuito de Jerez track in Spain in front a lot of spectators.
After being spied a few times until now, with that Batmobile unique look, the Renault Sport R.S. 01 is finally being placed into the spotlights, in an official manner, with the French based automaker bringing it to a Spanish track, were it made it do a few laps in front of 58,000 spectators, with Alain Prost behind the wheel.
“The Renault Sport R.S. 01 is magnificent, and that’s important in terms of image. This is a new step forward for Renault, since it is launching what is actually a typical Endurance car. It’s a real race car, while being closely linked to the product since its design was largely inspired by the new production models”, said Prost.
As you probably already know by now, the Renault Sport R.S. 01 is coming in with a 3.8 liter V6 twin turbo engine, which is capable of producing more than 500 HP( 373 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. The racing car will be competing in the LMP1 class and the model’s first deliveries will begin next year, in March.
