Renault is reportedly keen to regain its Nurburgring lap record for front-wheel-drive cars, with the new 2018 Megane RS set to take to the track again.

In order to wrestle the title from the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S, the Megane will get an engine tweak to tip it beyond the 300 BHP (224kW) barrier.

Further, the manual verses auto debate looks like finishing in a draw, with the UK’s Autocar reporting that dual-clutch automatic and manual options are on the cards - both six-speed.

While all-wheel-drive has previously been ruled out, the 2018 Megane RS is also set to score four-wheel-steering and surer on-road footing over its predecessor - thanks to its larger platform and lower ride-height.

Power will come from a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine driving the front wheels, with Renault looking to better the current Megane RS 275 Cup’s best of 5.8 seconds for the 0-100km/h sprint.

Buyers looking to put down a deposit now may have a while to wait. Overseas debuts are not scheduled until 2018, although the Australian arrival may occur shortly after. Stay tuned to TMR for more.
