Renault has revealed the first images 2014 V6 turbocharged engine that it believes will support magnetize fans back to Formula 1 sport.

(Renault Press Release) The new regulations that the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) is due to introduce in 2014 will see Formula 1 enter a new era. Motor racing’s premier series is on the threshold of one of the biggest technological changes in its history.

The objective of this metamorphosis is to ensure closer ties between the research and development carried out in F1, the concerns of everyday motorists and the new challenges faced on economic and environmental fronts, without detracting from the quality of the show or the level of competition.

This major technological revolution is a fresh challenge for Renault Sport F1’s experts, who are developing a brand new electrified 1.6 V6 Turbo power plant (known as a ‘power unit’), which combines a significantly downsized internal combustion engine with an energy recovery system that feeds two electric motors.

The change fits perfectly with Renault’s power train strategy, which is founded on:

An unmatched commitment to electric motors,

Ongoing improvements to the efficiency of its internal combustion engines with a view to achieving spectacular fuel consumption and CO2emissions gains.

Renault will defend its status as motor racing’s technological leader to benefit its range of road cars. The creative thinking and passion for innovation of everyone at Renault will be major assets as it prepares for this new era.

“Renault’s continued involvement in Formula 1 serves to showcase our technological expertise on the racetrack and also contributes to the progress of our road vehicles. In each of these areas that entails delivering the ideal balance between performance, fuel consumption and reliability.“

“For more than 35 years, F1 has helped Renault to develop its expertise in fields such as downsizing, friction reduction and cooling. With the new regulations, the use of electrical power stands to take on an increasingly important role in the development of powertrains, and that fits perfectlywith Renault’s strategic commitment to electric vehicles.” Carlos Ghosn (Chairman and CEO, Renault)
