Renault Sport R.S.01 Trophy + OnBoard at Monza Circuit, 560Hp Nissan GT-R 3.8-Litre TwinTurbo Engine

I had the pleasure of filming this lovely and fast Renault Sport R.S. 01 Trophy, including OnBoard at the Monza circuit. We are at the Kateyama Test Days event, and I have to thank the kindness of the friends of the RS-Tuning Team for welcoming me into their Box and allowing all this to happen. Two different pilots drove the car and immediately appeared at ease on the long straights of the Brianzolo racetrack. The R.S.01, which officially entered production in 2014 to take part in the homonymous single-make championship, was subsequently also built in a GT3 variant for endurance races. In the Trophy configuration, the 3.8-litre Twin-Turbo engine derived from that of the Nissan GT-R develops 560hp and 600Nm of torque. Compared to the Japanese engine, however, we find a dry-sump lubrication system and a Pactel electronic control unit equipped with an anti-slip system. The gearbox is a 7-speed Sadev sequential. The body in composite material reinforced with carbon fibre is very beautiful, and the suspensions with independent wheels and double-wishbone push-rod scheme and Öhlins adjustable shock absorbers are very nice. The total weight is about 1.150Kg, and the performance is like a real racing car, from 0-100 Km/h in 2.5 seconds and over 300Km/h of maximum speed.
I have to thank my friend and Youtuber @19Bozzy92 with whom I collaborated to realise this video. Enjoy!
