Renault has revealed the 250bhp Megane Renautsport 250 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Thankfully, Renault has remembered that it likes to make the odd car that doesn’t use electric motors or a hybrid toothbrush motor, and has revealed the new Megane Renautsport 250 at Frankfurt.
As you’d expect, the RS 250 is a wee bit OTT with LEDs and splitter; bulges and biceps everywhere. When the Renaultsport hits the road next year you’ll be able to choose from two versions – Sport or Cup. Unless you have a spine made of titanium – or you don’t feel a performance Renaultsport deserves its name unless your arse can read the makers name on the cats-eyes as you crash over them – choose the Sport. The cup gives new meaning to ‘Firm’ suspension.
The Megane RS gets a seriously fettled 2.0 litre turbo to give it a fair bit of go – 250bhp and 250lbs/ft of torque. Renault also has their own version of Ford’s RevoKnuckle to keep those horses connected to the road through the front wheels. And its called ‘PerfoHub’. No kidding.
The RS 250 also has the ‘Renaultsport Monitor’ which gives the driver a heap of info including real-time engine function, gearchange warning, throttle pedal mapping, 0-60 times and lap times. Enough toys to keep you busy.
More detail in the Renaultsport 250 Press Release. The Megane RS 250 will go on sale in the UK by the end of the year. No word on prices yet.
