The thrilling new Renault Megane Renaultsport roars into British showrooms this month on a cloud of long anticipated excitement. This stunning hot-hatch has a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 250bhp. This propels France's finest to 62mph in 6.1 seconds and on to an eye-watering 156mph.

The Megane Renaultsport is available with two chassis specifications - 250 and 250 Cup.

Choices are 'on' for optimum assistance, 'sport' for less ESP influence, and 'off' for seat of your pants thrills.

This fashionable hatchback also features the race inspired Renaultsport Monitor system. The dashboard mounted display reports real-time engine performance, gear change warning indicators, lap times, acceleration info, and various other functions to thrill gadget focused petrol heads.

The new Renault Megane Renaultsport 250 costs £23,489, whereas the firmer 'Cup' specification is a slightly more affordable £22,467.
