Recently unveiled at the 2008 British Motor Show, the Renault Megane R26.R was proclaimed the fastest front-wheel-drive production car to lap the Nurburgring. Now, Renault is backing up their claims of an 8:17 lap with this video of the French hot hatch buzzing around the famed German circuit. It may not be as quick as the Corvette ZR1's 7:26 lap, but considering the 'Vette has over 400HP more than the Megane's 230 HP four-banger, we're throughly impressed by the little Renault.
