FRANKFURT MOTOR SHOW: Renault reveals hot new Megane RS

Renault at the motor show in Frankfurt, Germany introduced the Renault Megane RS new generation. One cool class-exclusive feature of the Renault Megane R.S. is 4Control four-wheel steering, which should give the auto exceptional agility at high speeds. A Trophy version with 300 hp and 400 Nm of torque is promised by the end of 2018.

Painted in "Orange Tonic" - a new Renault Sport-specific hue, the hottest member of the Megane family scores the familiar trademark RS-chequered flag driving lamps. Renault has ditched the old 2.0-litre turbo for the last Megane RS infavour of a 1.8-litre turbo four-cylinder. Despite the 200cc drop in capacity outputs increase to 205kW and 390Nm, fed through either a six-speed manual (hooray!) or six-speed dual-clutch transmission like that found in the Clio. The Megane RS achieves 6.9 litres per 100 km on the combined cycle (which equates to approximately 41mpg). Two chassis will be offered, Sport and a more focused Cup version, both with independent steering axis front suspension to reduce torque steer and hydraulic bump stops at all four corners. The R-LINK 2 system features a new RS Monitor, which tracks and records the car's telemetry and driver performance.

The Renault Megane RS bodywork is 60 mm wider at the front and 45 mm wider at the rear respectively compared to the Megane GT.

Analyst's Proposition on Apple Inc. (AAPL), Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL)
The Skyline Asset Management Lp holds 1.16 million shares with $36.13 million value, down from 1.21 million last quarter. Independent Advisor Alliance purchased a new stake in shares of Apple during the fourth quarter worth about $9,509,000.

The hot hatch is based on the stand Megane but has a body that's 60mm wider at the front and 45mm wider at the rear.

Once aboard, occupants will be struck by the living room-like ambiance with front seats that can be rotated to be rear-facing and there's even a coffee table to complete the look.

Maximising the effect of the underbody aero is a sports exhaust that has been neatly packaged to exit within the centre of the diffuser.
