You might think that in a world where the Gatso, traffic warden and congestion charge rule, that all the fun had been taken out of driving – well, thankfully, no-one has told the people at Renaultsport. There is a new addition to the range of high performance Renaults, this time based on Europe’s best-selling car last year – the Mégane.
First deliveries of the exclusive New Mégane Renaultsport 225 will be on 1 May 2004 and orders can be placed at any Renault dealer now to be at the front of the queue. And a queue there is likely to be if sales of the recently introduced Mégane Coupe-Cabriolet are anything to go by, which currently has a six month waiting list with new orders now being quoted September delivery.
Available as either a three door Sport Hatch for £19,500 or five door Hatch for £20,000 on-the-road, the Mégane joins its two stablemates, the new Clio Renaultsport 182 and Clio Renaultsport V6 255, both of which are also fresh in the showrooms in the last few months. The UK is the largest market in the world for Renaultsport products with over 2,500 Clios sold in 2003.
Renowned for providing the ultimate in high performance driving pleasure, the Renaultsport badge on the back of a car means you can expect class-topping levels of performance and excitement. The Mégane 225 fits between the two Clios offering top-notch performance in a refined car that can be enjoyed every day of the year no matter what the roads or conditions, not just on the occasional visit to a racing track.
