Now we know for sure that Renault will be introducing the world to its new Mégane RenaultSport (RS). This was proven today when a mini-site representing the car was sent to the media from the Renault offices in France. The link is in French and shows a silhouette of the car in front of a very dark background with headlights that keep flashing.
Mégane RS will declare war once again on its old nemesis the VW Golf GTI as well as other rivals in the segment like the Opel Astra GTC and Ford Focus ST. Even the VW Scirocco is not safe from it.
We believe the Mégane RS will be powered by a 2.0-litre turbo engine with over 180kW and upwards of 340Nm in peak torque. It will be launched at the Geneva Motor Show this March. Mzansi may only get this car in 2010 after the arrival of the all-new Mégane hatchback.
