Driver error leads to massive crash of a Renault Megane RS at the Nürburgring track in Germany this weekend.
Only several days after a Nissan GT-R R34 was the victim of a relatively minor crash at the ‘Ring, yesterday a more serious accident involving a Renault Megane RS took place. Overly confident in his skills, the driver was simply going too fast and failed to brake in time, smashing hard into the guardrail. The impact caused the high-performance coupe to flip and lose one of the wheels before coming to a stop at the next left corner.
If the crash seems very familiar, that’s because in the exact same location another white Renault Megane RS coupe rolled over almost a year ago. However, that one managed to land on its wheels, unlike this one which ended up with its three remaining tires facing the sky. Coincidentally, yet another Renault Megane RS crashed in September last year in the same spot.
All three accidents were quite serious, but none of the drivers suffered any serious injuries, thus proving Renault engineered a very safe car. The Megane RS coupe is on its way to a well-deserved retirement set to take place towards the end of the year. An all-new model, this time around a five-door hatch, will be out in 2017 and is believed to get more than 300 horsepower (220 kilowatts) and all-wheel drive if we were to rely on the rumor mill.
