Conquering the world of American motorsports in The Crew® 2 is no easy feat; you’ll need the right tools for the job to ensure your spot on the podium. Over the coming weeks, we’re working directly in partnership with manufacturers to bring you a taster of the vehicles you’ll have at your fingertips to achieve this goal. Welcome to the Motorsports Vehicle Series!

To kick things off, we’re tearing up American roads with a new kid on the block. The Street Racing Family is a popular proving ground for aspiring champions, whose motors have to live up to their mettle. The Renault Megane R.S. 2018 is one such machine.

A brand-new car and manufacturer to hit the streets of The Crew 2, this third-generation iteration of the iconic hatchback is certainly easy on the eye – but don’t be fooled into thinking it’s all looks and no performance!

Boasting a new turbocharged engine with direct fuel injection, the Megane R.S. packs a punch with 280 bhp under the hood and peak torque of 390 Nm.

To channel this power effectively, Renault Sport has also built in its renowned 4Control four-wheel steering. The Megane R.S. therefore delivers impressive agility in tight turns and excellent cornering stability at higher speeds.

But it isn’t just its mechanical get-up that makes this car perfect for The Crew 2 – it’s the fact that every aspect of the design takes inspiration directly from the world of professional motorsports. From its 3D honeycomb-pattern grill mesh, front blade, and rear diffusor added by Renault Sport, to the wider wings and tracks designed for outstanding driving dynamics, the Megane R.S. is truly a car for people who just love to drive.

That’s it for this installment of the Motorsports Vehicle Series, petrolheads. Why not read up on the Street Race Discipline in The Crew 2 while waiting for Part Two to drop? We’ll see you next time!

The Crew 2 will be available on June 29, 2018, for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system (includes enhanced features on PS4™ Pro), the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and Windows PC. It will be available three days early, on June 26, 2018, for Gold Edition owners on all aforementioned platforms.
