The Renault Megane RS was spotted being put through its paces at the Nordschleife track in Germany.

While heavy camouflage hides most of its details, bits like the huge air vents up front and a diffuser at the rear are clearly visible. It gets an aggressive front fascia with ‘chequered flag’ style DRLs on the front bumper and a sporty body kit to improve aerodynamics. Under the hood, Renault might opt for the new 1.8-litre turbocharged four-cylinder from the Alpine A110 in place of the 2.0-litre turbo. Either way, Renault has confirmed an output of over 300bhp for the new Megane RS. Power goes to the front wheels through an EDC dual-clutch automatic gearbox from the Clio RS. For driving enthusiasts, a six-speed manual box will also be offered.

The Renault Megane RS will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September as a 2018 model. While the new Honda Civic Type R holds the current lap record at Nordschleife, its lap time of 7:43.80 is sure to come under threat from the Megane RS.
