In just a few years, data acquisition systems have revolutionised working methods for motorsport drivers. With R.S. Monitor, these technologies are now available to everyone! 

 

Available in R-LINK, R.S. Monitor displays telemetric data from the vehicle's sensors (pressure, temperature, engine revs, steering wheel angle, etc.) in the form of digital or graphic manometers.

Renault Sport technology: Launch control

If you've always dreamed of perfect optimisation when starting, you'll adore Launch Control. This electronic driver-assistance system is specifically designed for this use: engine torque is continually adjusted to give the wheels maximum grip without skidding on the road surface.

R.S. performance goes beyond the chassis with this system that groups together 4 high-performance lighting functions in one unit:

 

  • side lights;
  • cornering lights;
  • fog lamps;
  • long-distance main beam lights.
Renault Sport - turbo ball bearing technology

Turbo ball bearing technology

The turbo technology pioneered by Renault was introduced in Formula 1 in 1977, and is currently featured in most models from the R.S. and GT range.

 

In 2018, Megane R.S. adopted a new "ball bearing" turbo technology straight from modern F1. The turbine – which spins at almost 200,000 rpm – is now fitted to a ceramic ball bearing mechanism.
