See Renault’s stunning race car in action

If you’re anything like TG, you’ll have used your school exercise books not for keeping a physical record of the six-times table or a list of French nouns, but for drawing - without a shadow of a doubt - the world’s best looking race car.

Well, if you’ve kept your doodles, here’s how to turn them into a real, rip-snorting racer.

Renault’s nine-minute video on its new R.S.01 manages to avoid feeling too corporate (despite some overly dramatic music), instead giving a rather fascinating insight into how to turn sketches into “the most beautiful race car ever seen” in a scant five months.

It goes from pen wielding to circuit testing, via a motor show debut alongside Alain Prost and the manhandling of carbon bits in the workshop.

And if you simply want to see it in action and hear its Nissan GT-R sourced V6 making ferocious noises, then may we point you to around 6:30 in the video for the first bit of on-track footage. And keep an eye out for some seriously hot brake discs…
