I happened to notice a tweet about this post by a writer who covers transportation and felt the piece was "irresponsible." I disagree and, rather than joust one another on Twitter, I thought I'd move the discussion to a better platform for debate.
The concept of the Renaultsport RS 0.1 is a strong one: Stuff a Nissan GT-R V6 into the back of a race car. Given Nissan's Le Mans plans it makes perfect sense to let their French cousins have a stab at it. Yet, all anyone can see is an R8.
