The British motorists will soon be able to grab one of the new 2010 Renault Megane Renaultsport 250 hot hatchbacks created specifically for the local market.
Just unveiled at the Motor Show in Paris, the 2009 Renault Megane Coupe will go on sale next month to share showrooms with the new five-door Megane hatchback.
Based on the current Renault Megane 230 F1 Team R26 hot hatchback, the R26.6 comes equipped with the same 2.0-liter 230hp engine, six-speed manual gearbox and limited slip differential.
The French L’Equipe sports daily magazine has offered its readers a special edition version of the 2007 Renault Megane family of compact hatchbacks. Available for all versions of the car (including the three-door and five-door models, that is) the Megane L’Equipe edition is not limited to just a set of fancy decals. Au contraire, the car will offer a comprehensive set of equipment, which is usually available only as pricey options.
Renault Megane Renaultsport 230 F1 Team R26 hot hatchback will soon be launched to monetize a fraction of Renault F1 team’s success during the last couple of seasons. Although there are still a couple of races to go, there is already a very good chance for the French car maker to repeat its last year’s success when Renault won the 2005 Manufacturers title in the most prestigious world racing series.
