All-New Mégane R.S. to make its debut at the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix

The All-New Mégane R.S. is poised to break cover in Monaco on Friday 26th May, driven by Renault Sport Racing Formula One Team’s Nico Hülkenberg. For the occasion, the car will sport a yellow and black livery to mark the 40th anniversary of Renault’s involvement in Formula 1.

It’s possible that the R.S. could be powered by a new motor that develops a figure of around 300bhp. Another new addition will be the EDC dual-clutch automatic gearbox from the Clio RS.

Following its brief outing at Monte Carlo, the new Megane RS will make its ‘proper’ debut at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show in September.
