The new Megane Renault Sport was a start attraction as it was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show last week.
The vehicle, due to go on sale next Spring (2018) will be priced around £30,000.
The Megane RS is based on the standard five-door hatchback, although the
body has been extended by 60mm at the front and 45mm at the rear. They've also included air vents on the front wings, behind the wheelarches which are designed to boost airflow around the front of the car at high speed.
The 276bhp newcomer will take on the Honda Civic Type R, Volkswagen Golf
GTI and SEAT Leon Cupra R for the title of best front-wheel drive hot
hatch on sale.
