Renault Megane RS

The all-new Mégane RS is set to debut at the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix this weekend writes Geraldine Herbert


  1. The fastest Renault RS in history will be driven around Monaco’s street circuit by Renault F1 driver Nico Hülkenberg.
  2. We will have to wait until September for the new RS to be unveiled officially at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
  3. Under the bonnet we expect a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine tuned to produce more than 300 bhp.
  4. Unlike its predecessor the 2018 Megane RS will only be available as a five-door, there won’t be a 3-door version this time.
  5. The new Megane RS is likely to go on sale late 2017.
