Renault Sport has released a teaser video of a new Megane RS model that, according to the first details, will be the quickest Megane ever. The video was filmed at the Nurburgring race track where the car seems to handle itself well making its trip around the circuit. We doubt this more powerful model will try to smash any Nurburgring records, but at the very least we’ll get a spicier version of the Megane. Maybe even a special edition Megane RS Nurburgring Edition.

The standard Megane Renault Sport is powered by a new-generation 2-liter 16-valve turbocharged petrol engine that delivers a total of 250hp at 5,500rpm and peak torque of 250 lb-ft from 3,000rpm. Expect the new model to be more powerful than this with a few added features.

The speedier Megane RS is expected to make its world debut on June 17, 2011, so stay with us to find out more details!

Great car! Renault Megane really has an impressive figure performance. The turbocharged here produce an awesome amount of power. However, I was thinking on what it’s lap time record?

I would say that the figure performance of the car is quite impressive. I wonder on what was its official lap time record in Nurburgring track? I have seen that it run smoothly in the race track.

It is the first time I watched the video about Renault Megane RS, but it really impressed me. It is a compact car but still has the speed performance of a race car. I would follow the trend of this one.

it’s a good thing that they are now working on upping the Megane. The car is really great, but it is starting to be overtaken by its competitors, so it really needs some update.

Well, I wan to see this car compete with a renounce brand name in the world of sports car. I bet it would be better if it has a racing buddy on Nurburgring race track .

Well, I guess the rumor would be true since i can see that 250 hp is a powerful output. However, I want to know the speed record of this car.

Wow! A powerful compact car.. I wonder ho much it will cost? And it wasn’t mentioned on what is the speed record of this car in the Nurburgring track?

I have witnessed on how powerful and faster is this car in the race track.250hp is such an awesome power output. I bet an aftermarket version of this car would boost the power of the Megane into unbelievable speed.
