Since we met the fourth-generation Renault Mégane, in the latter part of the past year, we’ve all questioned what would happen with the Renault Mégane RS. Would there be? What front-wheel drive or total? What power? What design? The compact sports car of the French brand has been allowed to see publicly today for the first time, although it was not fully discovered nor have been offered the use of their data in a more interesting power and performance.
Renault celebrates 40 years of its arrival in the “Big Circus” this week, coinciding with the celebration of the Monaco Grand Prix. The brand has decided to take this date and event as noted in the calendar to promote his Renault Mégane RS. What better way than to give a return to the mythical urban layout being piloted by F1 driver Nico Hülkenberg? So it has been. The pity is that he had a camouflage aesthetic, and that by September it will debut officially.
The Renault Mégane RS will have its coming-of-official during the Frankfurt motor show, the 12 of September. The objective of Renault and Renault Sport with this car is clear: to be the best compact front-wheel-drive in the world. Among the details that we already have of this compact sports we can note that for the first time will not be available with bodywork of three doors and, also for the first time, you can associate a transmission of dual-clutch EDC, while maintaining serial change 6-speed manual.
on the other hand, months ago there were rumors commented on the possibility of changing the drive system, going from front wheel drive to the all-wheel drive. Everything seems to indicate that finally will use traction to the front axle. What we don’t know yet is if it will use a propeller 1.8, like the Alpine A110 or if you will use a 2-liter. In any case, we can say that it will be tetracilíndrico and that, as the previous two, you will have boost. It is expected a power of about 300 HP; it would be strange to come down out of 300.
