Renault Megane III RS 250

Description

The third generation of the Renault Megane was as C-Segment car launched in 2008 and received a facelift in 2014.

The Renault Megane III RS 250, launched at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, fitted with a 2.0 liter 16v twin-scroll turbo F4Rt engine producing 250 hp (184 kw) of power and 340 Nm of torque, combined with a 6 speed manual gearbox. The car had an independent steering axis layout at the front, electric power steering with specific, sportier calibration and fully disconnectable ESC. It accelerated from 0-100 km/h in 6,1 seconds and could reach a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

Visually, the car was distinguished by a redesigned bodykit including more sporty bumpers with integrated LED daytime running lights, front splitter, extended side sills, wider wheel arches, 18 inch alloy wheels, central exhaust tailpipe and rear diffuser. Inside it featured aluminium pedals, sporty steering wheel, analog rev counter and sport seats.

The Cup variant came with a stiffer chassis, track focused suspension, a limited slip differential and a slightly lighter gross weight. The Cup was differentiated visually with red brake calipers, 18×8.25″ “Ax-l” alloy wheels fitted with wider 235/40R18 tyres, while 19×8.25″ “Steev” wheels were available as an option with 235/35R19 tyres. In Australia, the Megane RS was only sold in Cup form, though the features resemble that of the luxury model sold in Europe with the only options being front parking sensors and bi-xenon directional headlights.

In 2012, Renault launched a more powerful version, the Renault Megane III RS 265
