The Espace F1 had an actual F1 Renault engine in the back. Don't think more than one was ever made. At the time the Renault F1 engine was developed by Renault Sport, as there was no Renault F1 division. That'd mean the Espace was developed by Renault Sport.

It was almost an F1 car with different bodywork, it had to be driven by skilled pilots. They took "normal" people for laps around circuits, but on the passenger seat. Prost was one of the pilots that used to drive it.

Taken from the internet:

"The Renault Espace F1 is manufactured by Renault, Williams and Matra. It has a 3500 cc 40-Valve V10 engine, who produces a massive 800 BHP/ 597 kW. That is 228.6 BHP per liter. The Espace F1 weighs 1300 kg, is 443 cm long and 205 cm wide. The height is n/a. This prototype has a maximum speed of 310 kph/ 194 mph and sprints in 2.8 seconds from 0 to 100 kph/ 60 mph."

I'd have one. Gladly. Could sit outside the nearest Ferrari garage, then point and laugh at the slow italian cars.

Would the engine from that espace fit in the back of a Vee? There's an engineering challenge...

It's probably easier to fit the R26s V8. Besides, that has to last for two full GPs (just don't take it to Imola LOL.
