Megane Renaultsport 250 launched

Renault has revealed prices and specifications for its new Megane Renaultsport 250.

The Megane is the latest model to get the Renaultsport treatment recently given to the Twingo and Clio.

Two sporty models
The latest Renaultsport will be available in two versions, both with a 247bhp 2.0-litre engine.

The Megane Renaultsport 250 Cup has a chassis tuned for exhilarating performance, while the Megane Renaultsport 250 adds more equipment and uses the standard sport chassis.

The Cup suspension pack includes a limited-slip differential, stiffer springs and and anti-roll bar. The 18-inch alloy wheels are black, and encase red brake calipers.
