That's why the engineering team and a pretty ballsy test driver took the French racing car to Italy's most famous circuit. It's unknown what the Renault boys were fine tuning on this instance, but we suspect it has something to do with the RS 01's suspension.
Powered by a centrally-mounted 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 lifted from the Nissan GT-R Nismo, the Renault Sport RS 01 provides a heck of an aural experience when you give it the beans in full-attack mode.
It was named in tribute to Renault’s very first Formula 1 carThere are little chirps on upshifts and the overrun barks when you lift off the loud pedal. So not only does it look like it came out of Gotham city, but the RS 01 also sounds like some sort of hellhound with a carbon fiber body and an appetite to shrug rubber off its wheels.
What F1 four-time champion Alain Prost described as "a spectacular racing car" is also a pretty expensive proposition to go racing for the most of us. To buy the car and your entry in the racing series, Renault Sport charges a hefty £282,000 ($468,000) for the RS 01.
