We’re extremely proud of featuring this car, and we know it’s a car you’ve been waiting for us to feature, and so you can check out our brand new trailer showcasing this beauty below, or head to our YouTube channel here:

If you want reminding how iconic this car is, here’s a little reminder:


  • 2006 Renault R26 – Driven by Fernando Alonso and Giancarlo Fisichella, the R26 scored 8 wins out of 18 races, with 7 pole positions and 5 fastest laps, leading for more laps and winning more races than any other car in 2006. It helped Alonso win his second Drivers’ Championship and Renault to claim their second Constructors’ Championship in succession.


The 2006 Renault R26 joins the announced 1992 Williams FW14B, 1995 Ferrari 412 T2, 1996 Williams FW18, 2002 Ferrari F2002, 2004 Ferrari F2004, 2007 Ferrari F2007 and 2010 Red Bull Racing RB6 – and the 1988 McLaren MP4/4.
