But more on the R1!
It may boast only 207HP from its mid-mounted 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s the same as the one used in the Formula Renault, but it also has a kerb weight of only 590 kg (1,300 pounds), thanks to its carbon fibre chassis and carbon and Kevlar bodywork, which makes for a low 3,58 kg/kW weight-to-power ratio.
Even though no official numbers are announced, performance is bound to be more than adequate.
The F4R 832 engine features a Cosworth / Pectel ECU with traction control and transmits its power to the rear wheels via a Hewland six-speed sequential gearbox placed in the rear, in a transaxle configuration, with pneumatic paddle shifts and a ZF Sachs twin-plate clutch.
There’s a fully adjustable double-wishbone aluminum suspension all around while AP Racing discs with four-piston calipers take care of braking.
