MEGANE R.S. has a proud history on the “Green Hell” of the Nürburgring’s North Loop, the Nordschleife. In 2008, MEGANE II R.S. R26.R driven by Vincent Bayle broke the lap record in a time of 8:17. Three years later, MEGANE III R.S. 265 Trophy with Laurent Hurgon at the wheel took only 8:07.97 to cover the 20.600km distance. Hurgon broke his own record in 2014 to record a time of 7:54.36 in MEGANE III R.S. 275 Trophy-R, the ﬁrst time a FWD vehicle had beaten the eight-minute barrier.
