Megane Renaultsport 225

Renault is the latest car manufacturer to join the dual clutch transmission club, however no launch date, no specs and pretty much nothing else was revealed. All that was revealed to motoring publications by Renault’s head of product planning Patrick Pelata is that “they are on their way and we will not come too late.”

Although Renault’s usage of dual clutch transmissions will mainly be to cut fleet CO2 emissions, we could see some of Renault’s best hot hatches equipped with the ultra fast shifting twin clutch gearboxes, like the Renault Clio Renaultsport 197 and the Renault Megane Renaultsport 225 (shown above).
