Renaultsport reclaims Nurburgring lap record

Renault has unveiled the most hardcore RenaultSport Megane yet, the Trophy-R, and celebrated in style: by setting a new lap record at the Nurburgring.

The FWD battle has hotted up in recent times. The Trophy-R lapped the German track in a total time of 7min 54secs, smashing the previous front-wheel drive record of 7m58s set by a Seat Leon Cupra. Not half bad for a “family hatch”, albeit one that costs almost £10,000 more than the Leon.
