Renault Sport pulled the plug on a third-gen Megane RS last summer and most thought that the reveal of its replacement was imminent.
Some believed that the last Paris Motor Show was a perfect place for the company to reveal their new hot hatch, whereas others expected the debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
However the French chose to keep it away from both events, the next logical assumption would be the reveal at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September, which seems to be on par with the automaker’s plan of unveiling it later this year, according to the video that celebrates Renault Sport’s social media milestone – 1 million fans on Facebook.
Well, social media allows us to connect, interact and get meaningful feedback. We thank all our fans for their commitment and look forward to sharing a new Megane RS with them later this year, said Renault’s Vice President of Global Brand Strategy and the Marketing Communications, Bastien Schupp.
As for the actual car, this is expected to gain the set of aggressive bumpers on both ends, the roof-mounted wing, and large rims, while a chassis will be tuned by the masters over at Renault Sport.
The most important change, however, will come from under the hood, and where the new 2.0-liter four-banger turbo is expected to push roughly 300 hp to the front wheels, through a standard six-speed manual or the optional dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
This will place it in the same league as the Volkswagen Golf R, Focus RS, and the Honda Civic Type R.
