The R.S. 2027 Vision embodies Renault's vision of how Formula 1 might be in ten years' time – 2027 – based on its long experience of the sport as it prepares to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of its involvement later this year. The new concept car also expresses the brand's intention to be in the competition for the long-term. Indeed, Renault is eager to play a major role in shaping Formula 1's evolution and to put drivers very much back at the heart of the sport.
The R.S. 2027 Vision also probes areas in which new technologies might be carried over from motor racing to road vehicles for the benefit of customers, and vice-versa.
The wraps are due to come off the R.S. 2027 Vision concept car at Auto Shanghai 2017 at 10h20 local time (03h20 GMT) on 19 April.
