We’ve talked about what we call ‘Ring Wolves before and here we are, bringing these Nordschelife predators under the spotlights once again. Last time we had a Renault Megane RS that made a manic effort to keep up with a Ferrari 458 Speciale, but this time we want to give you double the fun.
How about a ‘Ring battle between another 458 Speciale and the Porsche 911 GT3 RS? At first, you might be tempted to say things don’t get more special than that. Well, sometimes they do. And one perfect example of such a situation can be seen in the footage below.

This was a four-way adventure

The video brings us a pair of Megane RS drivers that push their machines to the limit, joining the supercar battle mentioned above. Sure, the guys in the Ferrari and the Porsche don’t go into maximum attack mode, but this is the point here.

On many occasions, supercar drivers lap the Nurburgring at 80% of their machines’ capabilities. RWD contraptions such as the ones we have here can sometimes be difficult to tame, while their price doesn’t exactly invite you to try and go past the limit.

This is where the hot hatch underdogs step in. Sorry, we meant ‘Ring Wolves. The clip below shows a pair of Megane RS guys that serve as members of this mostly-FWD club.

The first of the two hot hatches is fitted with both front- and rear-mounted dash cams, which means we get a perfect taste of the action at all times.

The length of the video, which sits at over 9 minutes, tells us that not even the Meganes, which can lap the ‘Ring in under 8 minutes, were used at full blast. Still, seeing such track play is always a delight.
