Renault explores the future of racing and technology with its new R.S. 2027 Vision concept car

The first of Renault’s latest cycle of concept cars – which foreshadow the brand’s upcoming road cars – was the Renault TREZOR.

Today, this new cycle is poised to continue with the imminent reveal of the R.S. 2027 Vision, a concept car that explores the brand’s vision of how Formula 1 might be in the future.

The R.S. 2027 Vision will be unveiled on April 19, at Auto Shanghai 2017 with Cyril Abiteboul, Managing Director of Renault Sport Racing, and the four-time Formula 1 World Champion Alain Prost.

The R.S. 2027 Vision embodies Renault’s vision of how Formula 1 might be in 10 years – 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 put 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 on April 19. Don’t hesitate to share your thoughts on the social media channels using the tag #RS2027Vision
