It seems odd, nearly half way into 2013, to bring out a special edition model celebrating the success of F1 partner Red Bull Racing…
I love it when a car maker produces something which we’ve all secretly dreamed of, but never dared hoped for. This Ladies and Gentlemen,…
It’s called the Clio Renaultsport 200 Raider and just 50 are coming to the UK replete with matt Renault i.d. paintwork and a choice of just two colours – Stealth Grey or Diavolo Red.
This is essentially a makeover, rather than an upgrade – the only exception being the 18” ‘Interlagos’ alloy wheels, which are one inch larger diameter than the standard 200 wheels.
As we reported last week, Renaultsport’s newest progeny – the Mégane RS 265 Trophy – has broken the lap record set by the Megane R26.R around the Nürburgring, lowering it by just under 9 seconds from 8min 16.9 seconds to 8min 7.97 seconds.
As we speculated last week, Renault have revealed a new top-dog Renaultsport model and have chosen to name it Mégane RS 265 Trophy. So, is this a successor to the R26.R?
Following news last week that Renaultsport were preparing to launch a new model at the Nürburgring on 17th June, we now have a little more insight into what to expect. Initial signs pointed towards a Mégane R26.R successor, but we now understand the new model is likely to be carry the Trophy name – so less of a hardcore track warrior and more in the vein of a slightly upgraded Mégane Renaultsport 250.
It looks like Renault will be revealing a successor to its iconic Megane R26.R later this month, at an event which will simultaneously announce the new car’s lap time around Germany’s barometer of speed – the Nürburgring.
Already a firm favourite amongst driving enthusiasts for its chassis and engine, the Mégane Renaultsport 250 is now turning it’s hand to privateer rallying in the shape of the Mégane Renaultsport N4. Developed for racing on asphalt, it draws upon a rich heritage of group N-homologated Renaults stretching back over a quarter of a century, including 5 GT Turbo, R11 Turbo, R21 2l Turbo, R19 16V, Clio Williams and Clio Renaultsport.
