• Renault prepares 275 HP version for the 2.0 Liter engine

The French automaker Renault is preparing a few surprises for us for the Frankfurt Motor Show. One of them is a factory tuned 275 HP version of the 2.0 Liter TCe gas burning engine that will add a very healthy dose of sport to the automobile manufacturers lineup. The only problem is that Renault still hasn’t confirmed which model will be lucky enough to be motivated by the hot rod power plant.

Current speculation suggests that there are two possible models that will benefit from the turbocharged four cylinder engine. One of them is the special edition Renault Megane 3RS and the other is a Gordini version for the Megane. Either way it would be very nice to see a Megane with the potent power plant under the hood no matter which label accompanied it.

Aside from the boosted Megane, Renault is planning on unveiling a special edition five door version of the Megane RS at the upcoming Paris Auto Show. Following their official debuts both the three and fiver door models will go into production in November.
