Proud to introduce our new racing beast: Renault Sport R.S. 01! Making its debut at the Moscow International Automobile Salon today, its technical specs reflect the best of Renault Sport expertise. With a carbon monocoque chassis for a weight of less than 1,100 kg and an engine developing over 500 hp, it is able to reach a top speed of over 300 kph. From 2015, Renault Sport R.S. 01 will be one of the stars of World Series by Renault in the new Renault Sport Trophy championship, a springboard for the professional GT and Endurance championships.
