Performance Espace RS Would Be Renault’s Ultimate Minivan

Presenting the new generation Renault Megane RS in Frankfurt gave internet artists something new to work on.

As a result, Aksyonov Nikita imagined how a performance Espace would look like, with some styling elements borrowed from the new Megane hot hatch.

Notice the ‘RS’ badge applied to the grille, under the diamond logo, the muscular hood, and the specific fog lamps that sit in the more aggressive bumper. The designer also fitted the MPV with the same wheels found on the new Megane RS, and called it a day after finishing it in an eye-catching purple shade, and tinting its windows.

Renault is already offering the Espace with the 1.8-liter turbo’d engine that debuted with the Alpine A110, and it now sits under the hood of the latest Megane RS, but with less power – 225hp and 300Nm (221lb-ft) of torque.

This means that making an Espace RS shouldn’t be that tricky, but according to sources, the French company isn’t interested in such a vehicle. Instead, they could expand their RS offerings to the SUV family, for the first time, and we could also see a Renaultsport sedan, in the future.

    This reminds me of the Renault Avantime Top Gear tried to use to beat a Lancer EVO around their track. I really loved when Renault was that quirky. It wasn’t good for them, and they still are quite eccentric in their design, in a way, but nothing will ever match the looks of a Vel Satis.
