Renault has introduced the Megane R.S. 250 Australian Grand Prix Limited Edition for the local market, arriving in the lead-up to next month's F1 Grand Prix opener in Melbourne.
The Megane R.S. 250 Aus GP's styling pack includes a gloss black finish and fixed glass roof - first seen on the Monago GP Limited Edition.
The European market's R.S. 250 Trophy's gloss black and red-ringed 19-inch wheels are also featured, wrapped in Bridgestone RE050A rubber.
Inside, the R.S. 250 Aus GP gets black leather height-adjustable Renault Sport RECARO front seats, along with satellite navigation.
Other features include bi-xenon directional headlights and parking sensors front and rear.
The quick coupe's powertrain remains unchanged, with motivation coming from a 2.0 litre four-cylinder petrol engine, producing 184kW and 340Nm of torque.
Channeling power to the front wheels through a six-speed transmission, the Megane RS 250 rockets to 100km/h in 6.1 seconds, and top speed is listed at 245km/h.
Pricing and Availability
Debuting on March 12 and priced at $49,990 plus on-roads (a $1000 premium over the Monaco GP edition), just 50 of Megane R.S. AGP cars will be offered, each with an individual build plaque.
