Renault's sharp Megane R.S. coupe has come in for a 2012 model-year upgrade in the European market, picking up a power boost from 250hp to 265hp - and with the badging to reflect it.

In kiloWatt-speak, that means Renault engineers have wrung a further 11kW and 20Nm out of its turbocharged 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine, making for a hefty 195kW and 360Nm of torque.

Those keeping score will remember these figures from the special 265 Trophy edition.

The extra go in the new 265 edition comes courtesy of increased turbo boost pressure (up 0.2 bar to 2.5) and a revised air intake system.

A new selectable drive system is also included, keeping the car at 184kW and 340Nm in the regular driving mode, and opening up the full 195kW an 360Nm in Sport mode.

In Sport mode, Renault says the Megane R.S. 265 will hit 100km/h in 6.0 seconds flat, making for a 0.1 second improvement over the R.S. 250.

The 2012 model will alo be offered with the the Cup Chassis Pack, ading 18-inch matte black alloy wheels wrapped in 235/40 R18 95Y Michelin Sport 2 rubber, upgraded Brembo brakes, an LSD, stiffer springs, dampers and anti-roll bars.

 

Australia

Speaking with TMR today, Renault Australia's Emily Ambrosy confirmed a local debut for the updated Megane R.S.

"Australia is a big market for Renault Sport and they are a great supporters of ours. In fact, we were the fourth largest market globally in 2012 for Mégane R.S. 250," Ms Ambrosy said.

"We definitely will see R.S. 265 in Australia but we do not yet have confirmed timing."
