Renaultsport has released a second teaser image for its new race car. The French company has also revealed its name – the R.S. 01.

Just over a month ago, the manufacturer unveiled the lines of its future race vehicle, describing it as a “simply spectacular race car”. Now Renaultsport says “the next important date is 27th August at the Moscow Motor Show, when we will unveil full details” about the R.S. 01. The model is set to “become the next star in the World Series by Renault Championship”, which will include a brand new category next year.

As reported before, the vehicle in question will be powered by a Nismo engine delivering more than 500 bhp (373 kW). The unit will be mated to a 7-speed sequential gearbox provided by Sadev, while Michelin will be in charge of fitting the car with new tires specifically designed for the competition.
