Performance wise, Renaultsport R.S. 01 is powered by Nissan GT-R’s twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6 engine tweaked by Nismo which generates more than 500 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. All this power is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed Sadev sequential transmission which enables the car to hit a top speed of more than 300 km/h.
