2018 Renault Megane RS breaks cover

The brand new five-door-only 2018 Renault Megane RS has made its high-profile world premiere at the Frankfurt motor show today, and damn it if the company hasn't knocked the design out of the park... The third-generation, painted in lurid orange, gets a new turbocharged 1.8-litre engine with 205kW at 6000rpm and 390Nm of torque - not exactly Ford Focus RS or Honda Civic Type R numbers... This engine is shared with the upcoming Alpine A110 coupe.
