In 1977, Renault developed the first F1 machine RS-01 equipped with a turbo engine and started the challenge of the Grand Prix race. In 1979, the engine was changed to twin turbo and evolved to RS-10 which adopted the mechanism of the ground effect car, and recorded the first victory of turbo F1. The RE-20 turbo is a further improvement of this RS-10, and the fighting power has been further enhanced, especially by succeeding in reducing the weight by nearly 30 kg.
The engine is a 1.5-liter V-type 6-cylinder DOHC equipped with two turbochargers. According to the regulations, it produces about 520 horsepower and top-class output while having half the displacement of a naturally aspirated engine. The car body is finished in a typical ground effect car with side pontoons with a reverse wing cross section on both sides of the slender center monocoque. With the success of the RE-20, which won three wins, many turbo F1s will appear after that, and the Grand Prix race will enter the turbo era.[Model outline] -A plastic model assembly kit that models the Renault RE-20 turbo that was active in the 1980 F1 Grand Prix race on a 1/12 scale.
