Is what F1 cars will look like in a decade? Well, Renault seems to think so and take the wraps from the RS 2027 vision concept at the Shanghai Auto Show.
The French brand has equipped the RS 2027 Vision concept with a drive train consisting of a turbocharger V6 engine and a second kinetic energy recovery system that delivers 500 kW (670 hp). The V6 then increases the total output to 1,341 hp (1 megawatts), while the incredibly minimalist body weighs only 600 kg. This results in a power-to-weight ratio of 2,235 kg / ton, about 1,000 hp / ton more than 2017-specific F1 cars.
In addition to the even more powerful powertrain, the design of the RS 2027 Vision looks dramatically different The F1 cars with which we are familiar. Beyond the radical new aerodynamic elements, the biggest change is the implementation of a fully enclosed cockpit, which is not too unlike the cockpit of a jet fighter. In the meantime, the current debates about the head protection in F1 is a possible and rather radical solution.
On the other hand, Renault has equipped the RS 2027 Vision with autonomous driving modes, which can be used during the safety care The car at a fixed speed. In addition, the vehicle uses a car-to-car communication that allows the racers to track their competition and more incredibly, could allow players to participate in real-time F1 racing.
The concept is also relatively environmentally friendly
According to CEO of Renault Sport Racing Cyril Abiteboul, "A role of Renault Sport Racing is to anticipate the future of Formula 1 so that it pulls a maximum
We look forward to inspiring conversations with the racing community, fans and enthusiasts through this concept, which highlights our ideas and desires. "
