Completing the package is a set of 17” Anthracite colored alloy wheels, extra tinted windows, red painted brake calipers, Recaro seats and Renault F1 Team decals with optional stickers for the doors and roof. The rear of the car also sports an air diffuser, which is said to improve downforce at highway speeds, while extractor vents on the front wings reduce turbulence to aid the car's drag co-efficient and cool the engine.
Under the hood is a 2.0 16V engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox that delivers maximum power of 197hp available at 7,250rpm, with 215Nm of torque at 5,550 rpm. The 0-100km/h takes roughly 6.9 seconds and the 1,000m mark comes up in 27.5 seconds.
At £17,250, it shouldn’t take long for Renault to move the 500 individually marked cars with first deliveries to start in June.
