2018 Renault Megane RS-leak

RenaultSport is currently bang in the middle of their teasing campaign for the new 2018 Renault Megane RS, so they won’t be liking this very much. The object of their teasing has now been completely revealed, albeit in leaked patent images, and the mystery is no more. 

Thanks to this act of mild industrial espionage we now know that the 2018 Renault Megane RS, thank goodness, is not all cutesy and adorable like its predecessor. It’s become sharp and angular and aggressive. It looks like it’s out looking for a fight, which is exactly what a proper hot hatch should look like. The new bumper features air intakes apparently modeled on Rocky’s mouth and there are side strakes like you get on an Aston Martin or stuff like that. The rear end is also cool,what with a large diffuser, extra vents and a large central tailpipe. But we have to say those signature Renault taillights are a bit of a let down.

Technical specifications are yet to be confirmed for 2018 Renault Megane RS, but the French have already let us know the new hot hatch comes with a choice of Sport or Cup chassis and with manual or dual-clutch transmissions, plus 4Control all-wheel steering. The new Megane RS is no doubt going to be the most exciting car Renault has launched in recent memory, with the exception of the new Alpine A110.

Renault Sport Rosemary Smith F1 (1)

If you count yourself as a car guy and a driving guru prepare to be greatly humbled. This is Rosemary Smith, a sweet old lady of 79, and she’s just become the oldest person to successfully drive an 800bhp Renault Formula One car.

And it wasn’t nonsense, either. She wasn’t being assisted while handling the F1 monster or sent just around the pit for a potter with the engine set to 10 percent output. As you can see in the video below, Rosemary Smith drove that F1 car like a boss, accelerating and cornering far better than… well, than Richard Hammond for instance who tried this thing on the old Top Gear a few times, each time making a hash of it.

The event was organized by Renault Uk as part of Renault Sport Formula One Team’s 40th Anniversary celebrations:

In fairness, Rosemary Smith used to be a professional rally driver with awards from many big international events. She got her start working as a navigator for a rally driver and then switched to the driver seat with great success. A particularly poignant victory was the famous Tulip Rally, which she won in 1965, an achievement which made not only the motorsport world take notice but also Hollywood, with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton sending her a huge bouquet and congratulatory letter. After years competing and winning at the highest level in world rallying, Rosemary set up her own driving school using Renault Clios and for the past two decades has campaigned for young driver education to be introduced in schools across the country.

PostHeaderIcon A Hot Hatch Renauls Zoe RS Has Us Hoping It Becomes A Reality

We all remember the Zoe RS all-electric concept from the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, right? It caught our attention because it not only featured 460 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque, it also showed that it was capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds. In other words, people immediately clamored Renault to build a production version of the concept. Now it appears that it’s exactly what Renault has been planning all along.

Speaking with Autocar, Renault Sport chief Patrice Ratti confirmed that his performance division has already developed a prototype of the all-electric concept that made its debut in Geneva back in March 2017. Ratti didn’t dive into any specifics about the car, but he did say that developed has progressed far enough that such a car is now feasible, something that “wasn’t the case a few years ago.” Still, Ratti’s optimism comes with a few caveats, particularly in the development of the batteries that will likely power the supermini hot hatch, not to mention the goal of ensuring that the car can uphold Renault Sport’s noted credentials in handling and drivability. These are some of the biggest issues that will be addressed if Renault really wants to send the Zoe RS to production. The good news is that there appears to be an optimistic and determined climate in Boulogne to make sure that it happens.

PostHeaderIcon Renault Celebrates 40 Years in F1 with a Yellow Teapot

yellow-teapot-1

Renault Sport takes the art of selling branded merchandise to a whole new level by producing a 129 Euro teapot! The Renault Yellow Teapot is an ordinary teapot in that it’s just a pot painted yellow, but its shape, and the very name itself, has a rather remarkable history behind it. 

You see, Yellow Teapot was a nickname for Renault Formula 1 car model RS01 which back in 197 during the Silverstone Grand Prix. This car was the first F1 car to have a turbo motor, later used by pother teams, and as you is always expected with new technologies, it was plagued with problems and white smoke coming out of its engine was a common sight in those days. You are getting the picture, aren’t you? a Renault F1 car in yellow, white and black livery, with smoke pouring out of it.

It was team boss Ken Tyrrell who first used the nickname “Yellow Teapot” as a joke. The expression was adopted by the membres of his team, then by other teams at the following Grand Prix events. The RS01 was thereafter nicknamed The Yellow Teapot. And so celebrating 40 fairly glorious years in the sport Renault is now presenting an actual Yellow Teapot. The pot is limited to only 40 copies, each priced at 129 Euro, and it will be launched in early September.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Alpine A110 Is Built to Last

Alpine-A110-2018

In pursuit of lightness and better performance many a sports car maker sacrifice many things, chief among which the quality. That is why most cars of this breed are brittle and delicate and need tender and loving care to keep working properly. In the case of 2018 Alpine A110, however, the opposite seems to be true. 

Renault Sport, the people who make the new 2018 Alpine A110, have not used any big words and empty promises about the quality and durability of the sports car. Instead, they are showing you what this little gem of a car can take by actually putting it through a number of rigorous and unforgiving durability tests. What this means is you can daily drive the Alpine come rain or sunshine, enjoy its sweet performance, and don’t worry about it going wrong.

The tests are thorough and even include ensuring the mechanical parts won’t corrode easily by simulating a salt spray. This is presumably for that one 2018 Alpine A110 buyer who lives by the sea! The A110 is also tested extensively on gravel so should you fancy a spot of rallying it can do that too, and it’s been exposed to an inordinate amount of dust to ensure the sealing and the overall build quality is top notch.

The more we learn about the new Alpine A110 the more we fall in love with it. Here’s a brilliant, modern, retro-look sports car with a nice cabin, a great engine and superb build and features, and then there is the Alfa Romeo 4C with its shoddy build, lack of features, cramped interior and no luggage compartment. Hmmm…

2018 Renault Megane RS -2

Renault Sport revealed today another delicious piece of information about the upcoming 2018 Renault Megane RS hot hatch and even gave us a glimpse of the design. The new RS is the first Renault, and the first hot hatchback, to get four-wheel steering. 

Renault calls this system 4Control and it offers enhanced agility, cornering performance and steering precision by enabling the car’s rear wheels to assist in steering by means of an electromagnetic actuator mounted on the rear axle. The 2018 Renault Megane RS will also offer a choice of Sport or Cup chassis, and manual or dual-clutch transmission. So whatever your inclination, this hot hatch will probably be able to satisfy your needs.

In terms of design, though shown here in camo dress, 2018 Renault Megane RS seems positively sporty but just a tad on the fat side.Hopefully it is only the looks and doesn’t mean the car is actually that heavy. You can also see the design of the head and taillights, and though we’re digging those cool RS LEDs up front, the rear lights make the whole thing look like a baby Koleos. The new Megane RS will make its debut at the IAA in September but we will definitely get a good look at it long before that.

PostHeaderIcon Renault Megane R.S.

Renault has been pretty successful
lately, with 2016 marking the debut of the fourth-generation Megane. The brand’s prized model is now available as a five-door hatch, four-door sedan, and as a wagon as well. Things are about to get a little juicier in the Megane stable, however, as the fourth-gen Megane R.S. has been putting in some work for a while now and is about production ready. We have reason to believe that Renault could be targeting the Focus RS and Civic Type-R with the fourth-gen R.S. The former would mean that Renault’s AWD system could make its way into the R.S., while the latter points to the R.S. having at least 300 horsepower. Put the two together, and you’ve got one amazing machine, to say the least. On the downer side of things, Renault has no plans to bring a Megane Coupe to fruition, so the R.S. will only be available as a five-door hatch.

As of now, the Megane R.S. looks to be about production ready, now sporting R.S.-style front and rear fascias, so a debut could be coming sooner than later. Will it be able to take on models like the Civic Type-R and the Ford Focus RS? Only time will tell, but let’s take a good look at all of the spy shots before Renault decides to lift the camo and shows us how big its johnson really is. Keep reading for all of the juicy details we have scrapped together thus far.

Update 6/20/2017: The upcoming Megane R.S. was caught stretching its wheels on the Nurburgring, and it’s been evolving since the last time we saw it. Check out the spy shots below to learn all about it.

renault_koleos_initiale_paris_1

Renault’s high-end Initiale Paris range now covers pretty much every model in the range with the Koleos being one of the more understated but no less luxurious members of the family. The 2017 Renault Koleos Initiale Paris may not shout about its unique features on the outside, but rest assured it has got them. 

On the subtle exterior Renault Koleos Initiale Paris is distinguished by virtue of its exclusive diamond-pattern 19” wheels, a specific insignia under the front Renault badge, and a specific front wing trim. You can also choose a new metallic Amethyst Black body colour that gives the car a sexy moody look. It still won’t change the fact that the headlights look weird, but hey.

Inside, Renault Koleos Initiale Paris benefits from specific dashboard and door lining décor as well as Nappa leather for the upholstery. The SUV comes with heated and ventilated front seats, laminated glass windows for better soundproofing, leather-covered dashboard, specific floor mats, and special Initiale Paris hands-free keycard. Equipment-wise, the car is loaded with options such as active emergency braking; lane departure warning; speed limit alert with roadsign recognition; blind spot warning; driver fatigue detection; reversing camera; automatic main-beam and dipped-beam switching; front, rear and side parking assistance; and Easy Park Assist.

All-New-Megane-R.S.

Turns out the new Honda Civic Type R is not going to enjoy being  the hottest hot hatch around, because Renault will soon reveal this, the new 2018 Renault Megane RS. They have just released a cool teaser announcing the Frankfurt Motor Show in September as the venue for the global debut of the car. But before that we’re going to see the new RS in action at Monaco GP. 

The 2018 Renault Megane RS will get an elaborate dynamic drive at the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend with Nico Hülkenberg driving the car on the street circuit. The debut RS will be dressed in the traditional RenaultSport colors of yellow and black.

As for the specs and details of the 2018 Renault Megane RS itself, the French remain tight-lipped on that for now, only revealing that the new RS utilizes F1 technologies and is more dynamic and more efficient than all its predecessors as seen in the teaser video above. There has never really been a bad Megane RS, even though sometimes the new technologies they implement on the car make the traditional fans of the car quite mad. But we are excited all the same to see what sort of performance figures the new hot hatch boasts. Will it be able to tear the Type R a new one? Or will it have to be content competing with lesser rivals?

Vans are not usually associated with glamorous events such as Cannes Film Festival, but that didn’t stop Renault from trying. The event marks the debut of the new Renault TRAFIC SpaceClass, a nine-seat van with innovative features which serves as transportation for customers and VIPs at Cannes.

Renault, of course, has always been good at making people carriers. They have the Espace which practically invented the whole segment. But Renault TRAFIC SpaceClass, they claim, is a whole new chapter in the history of such vehicles. It’s all about the interior space, where as mentioned you can fit up to nine adults. How they seat and where they seat is entirely up to them, since the TRAFIC has a modular design of the seats on rails in rows two and three which enables over 50 different configurations. Didn’t know there were that many.

As for the creature comforts, each passengers will enjoy dark-tinted rear windows, regulated air conditioning, individual LED reading lamps, and exclusive leather upholstery, if you choose the right trim. For example, the “Signature Pack” version of Renault TRAFIC SpaceClass comes with pivoting seats and a removable central tablet containing numerous storage spaces for the full mobile office experience. All versions are equipped with 220V and USB sockets for charging laptops and electronic devices. The driver has not been overlooked, as he or she gets a leather-covered steering wheel, a host of storage compartments, and chrome and gloss-black insert on the dashboard, in addition to a 7-inch screen with MediaNav Evolution navigation system or R-Link Evolution with Android Auto, and reversing camera.

Renault TRAFIC SpaceClass will hit the European market in September 2017.

Renault Sandero RS Racing Spirit-0

Brazil is one of the countries where big European car makers have found such a good footing, their branches there have actually developed into full-blown car makers in their own right making their own models. The new Renault Sandero RS Racing Spirit is one such car, and it has made quite a stir since it’s been announced. 

You know Sandero in Europe and Asia as a Dacia, a extremely affordable car with good feature that is, nonetheless, about as interesting to live with as a hairy mole on your forehead. What they have done with this thing in Brazil, though, is putting this bland and uninteresting proposition on a blend of coke and meth. The result is Renault Sandero RS Racing Spirit, a limited edition of just 1,500 units, featuring special appointments inside and out and a fairly powerful – by Sandero’s standards – engine.

Follow our channel for awesome car videos everyday: Subscribe

On the outside Renault Sandero RS Racing Spirit features a number of distinguishing red accents including graphics shouting out the name of the car along with 17 inch wheels for a more purposeful look. The same treatment continues inside where the black plastics are complemented with a dab of red paint on some of the trims and some really nice piano black stuff and high quality fabric for the seats. Engine-wise you have a 2.0 liter four-cylinder which in Europe would have been considered outdated, but is still a fairly decent motor with 150 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque, corresponding to a top speed of 200 km/h and a 0-100 time of 8 seconds.

The new Renault Captur family welcomes a range-topping member. The 2018 Renault Captur Initiale Paris, as its lofty name suggests, is the classiest, most luxurious and most well-appointed version of the French crossover. 

If we cut to the chase and see what sets the 2018 Renault Captur Initiale Paris apart from regular models, we have to look at the exterior, interior, and features separately. Starting on the outside, the top-of-the-line Captur is immediately recognizable as such thanks to a bespoke grille with chrome details, front and rear skid plates which feature a more metallic grey finish with windows and sip seals in the same color, and chrome inserts on either side of the vehicle with Initiale Paris branding.

Other highlights include Améthyste Black launch color, special 17-inch Initiale wheels, sequential LED direction indicators, and Initiale Paris branding on the lower door panels, door sills and front grille. Moving inside, the Initiale Paris treatment gives the crossover exclusive features such as heated Nappa leather seats, full-grain Nappa leather trimming for the steering wheel, chrome embellishments, a leather-trimmed dashboard, aluminium pedals and aluminium door sills.

That brings us to the list of features and equipment 2018 Renault Captur Initiale Paris is blessed with. You get Blind Spot Warning, Easy Park Assist, hands-free entry and keyless ignition, a premium Bose audio system and the very latest version of Renault’s R-Link Evolution multimedia system as well as all relevant smartphone applications with Android Auto.

Kevin Spacey Visits Renault-0

The star of American Beauty, The Usual Suspects, and House of Cards, the irreplaceable Kevin Spacey has been to France earlier this month where he popped by Renault Design Center for a short visit. If you’re wondering why would he do such a thing, that is because Kevin in a Renault ambassador and seems genuinely interested in the brand, even though it is not present in the American market. 

To be more specific, Kevin Spacey is an emissary for the Renault Espace, which is a bit off because frankly he is too cool to be associated with this model. At any rate, upon arriving in France Mr. Spacey was given a royal treatment as he was taken with Police escort to Renault design headquarters where they hosted a lavish welcome party for him before sending the actor on a tour of the place.

During the tour Kevin Spacey got to see the latest models (Talisman, Scenic, Mégane and Captur), received inside information on Renault’s style leanings, took a detailed look at TreZor concept, and tried his hand at clay modelling of a vehicle mock-up. It’s all good and well, but if we were to guess which car maker Kevin would be best suited to represent based on his body of work, it would be Audi RS because just like the actor, those cars look unassuming but are in fact giant slayers with truly magnificent capabilities.

2027 Vision Concept-3

Car makers with a Formula One team are always trying to come up with new ideas for the sport and become a pioneer in it. So here’s Renault’s idea of a future Formula One car, presented in from Renault RS 2027 Vision Concept which, as the name suggests, is what they think F1 cars should look like in 2027. 

We have to say, it does look good. But the extra features pitched by Renault RS 2027 Vision Concept as feasible may prove very difficult to implement in the real world. Here’s a taste of what they have in mind:

The pillars of Renault RS 2027 Vision Concept philosophy are simple and elegant ideas: greater focus on the drivers, more spectacular, more electric, safer racing. In order to achieve those goals the RS Vision introduces active LED lighting incorporated into the wheels and moves aerodynamic parts such as the car’s active wings for a more spectacular display, adds transparent cockpit and a transparent helmet so spectators can see the driver in action (human element), and wants extensive interaction between the cars and greater connection with spectators by giving the fans access to the telemetry of their favorite car.

2027 Vision Concept-4

In terms of safety they have the vision of an autonomous system that would take over in the case of an accident, along with an ultra-resistant polycarbonate cockpit canopy to protect against impact. Performance-wise, they want four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering and very high-energy density batteries, and environmentally, they propose the fuel tank capacity gets halved in the space of 10 years, plus a full-electric mode for use along the pit lane.

In terms of safety they have the vision of an autonomous system that would take over in the case of an accident, along with an ultra-resistant polycarbonate cockpit canopy to protect against impact. Performance-wise, they want four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering and very high-energy density batteries, and environmentally, they propose the fuel tank capacity gets halved in the space of 10 years, plus a full-electric mode for use along the pit lane.

2027 Vision Concept-3

Car makers with a Formula One team are always trying to come up with new ideas for the sport and become a pioneer in it. So here’s Renault’s idea of a future Formula One car, presented in from Renault RS 2027 Vision Concept which, as the name suggests, is what they think F1 cars should look like in 2027. 

We have to say, it does look good. But the extra features pitched by Renault RS 2027 Vision Concept as feasible may prove very difficult to implement in the real world. Here’s a taste of what they have in mind:

The pillars of Renault RS 2027 Vision Concept philosophy are simple and elegant ideas: greater focus on the drivers, more spectacular, more electric, safer racing. In order to achieve those goals the RS Vision introduces active LED lighting incorporated into the wheels and moves aerodynamic parts such as the car’s active wings for a more spectacular display, adds transparent cockpit and a transparent helmet so spectators can see the driver in action (human element), and wants extensive interaction between the cars and greater connection with spectators by giving the fans access to the telemetry of their favorite car.

PostHeaderIcon Here's Why the Alpine A110 Could Be Renault's Very Own Porsche Cayman Killer

After several years of rumors and teasing, Renault finally relaunched Alpine and unveiled the brand’s first road-going sports car in more than two decades. To those who aren’t familiar with the original Alpine A110, this new sports car is probably an enigma. The Alpine name doesn’t mean much to the average Joe nowadays, while the fact that it’s developed by Renault doesn’t give it the exposure it deserves. But I think that the new A110 has the potential to become a Porsche Cayman killer, and I’m going to explain why.

For starters, this isn’t your regular higher performance car based on an existing platform. The A110 rides on a bespoke chassis developed specifically for this application, while its lightweight, aluminum body is modern, yet aerodynamic and bears a close resemblance to the original, iconic A110 of the 1960s. In other words, while the Cayman doesn’t have that much history to brag about design-wise, the A110 is based on a vehicle that was launched two years before the Porsche 911. Pretty solid heritage, huh?

But looks are a matter of taste, and as I said before, Alpine is a rather obscure brand after operating as a niche carmaker in Europe only, so let’s move to the things that really matter to a sports car.
