Renault - new 1.6 Twin turbo - 2014 article

Even though the article is over a year old, it still a new technological improvement for engine development, neat stuff. If it is a Formula 1 platform inspiration that drove this project my guess is there will be something evolving in the higher performance industry in the future.

Renault has unveiled a new twin-turbocharged 1.6 litre twin-turbo diesel, which the French carmaker claims is a first for a diesel engine of its size.

The twin-turbo design is aimed at maximising low-end torque, while also boosting power at higher revs, with Renault saying the new engine “feels like a 2.0 litre”.

Renault claims its new Formula 1 Power Unit for the 2014 season has played a significant part in the twin-turbo diesel’s development, with both engines sharing a 1.6 litre capacity.

Friction-reducing and cooling technology, ‘U-Flex’ piston rings and Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) finishing of the camshaft followers are all borrowed from the new F1 Power Unit....

Bring some interesting thoughts.
