Everybody’s favourite automotive journalist Harris Chris recently had the exclusive opportunity to get behind the wheel of the potent R.S. 01 at the Silverstone circuit.

The R.S. 01 is set to compete in the World Series by Renault starting this year in the new Renault Sport Trophy championship. To provide some context for our potent the R.S. 01 is, Chris reveals that it has significantly more aerodynamic downforce than a GT3 racing car with braking performance to rival a prototype endurance racer and a DTM car.

Mid mounted in the R.S.01 is a Nismo 3.8litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine delivering over 500 hp and more than 600 Nm of torque. This potent engine is mated to a Sadev seven-speed sequential transmission.

All up, the R.S. 01 weighs just 1100 kg and thanks to special Michelin tyres and carbon ceramic brakes , promises to be absolutely ferocious on the track. One key contributor to keeping the weight down has been the development of a carbon fibre monocoque.
