Hmmm. They are a little less than subtle, aren’t they? But this new Renault Megane is a little more than just a go-faster decal job. Celebrating the success of this year’s Renault Formula 1 car (and announced way before the title was secured, natch), it builds upon the already potent Megane Renaultsport 225 F1 Team – to the tune of five extra bhp and an even better chassis. Making it the hottest Megane ever.
You’ll need to take a deep breath. It’s full title (and we’re not making this up) is the Renault Megane Renaultsport 230 F1 Team R26. The Renaultsport and F1 Team designators signify it was put together by the firm’s highest-octane swilling engineers. The 230 bit is its power output in ps – a frisky 227bhp of 2.0-litre turbocharged action – and R26 mirrors the name of Renault’s 2006 F1 car. We’ll just call it the Megane 230. Or, The One With The Limited Slip Differential.
