Renaultsport has released a teaser image for a "simply spectacular race car" set to be unveiled in August.

The vehicle was designed exclusively for the World Series by Renault competition which will include a brand new category next year. It will be used in a single-model championship and is going to feature a carbon monocoque built by Dalara while power will be provided by a Nismo engine delivering more than 500 bhp (373 kW).

Output will be channeled to the wheels through a 7-speed sequential gearbox provided by Sadev while Michelin will be in charge of fitting the cars with a new tire specifically designed for the competition. Featuring a sleek profile with a sloping roofline, the Renault Sport Trophy will boast a large fixed rear wing and will tip the scales at 1,100 kg (2,425 lbs).

Full details will be disclosed on August on 27 when the car will be unveiled in Russia at the Moscow Motor Show.
