New Megane Renaultsport 250 UK 2010 Launch Announced: Reviews and Specification Exterior looks great, too bad they're behind the new Golf R : less power, and no dual clutch. . ..megane rs 2 & 3 is the best traction in europe with exceptional roadholding although the engine is less powerful than the ford rs. Golf R is typed more comfort than sport.If they can prove to me that this one will do more for engine-note than the R26 R did, I will be first in line. The french are doing great things.In a world that was once domineered mainly by German manufacturers ... the Frenchies sure are making an impact and times are changing ... Can't wait to buy it, it's gonna kick ass! (current RS225 owner) . In my opinion, cars are like women, they have to be reliable and beautifyl, who cares if some car accelerates second or 2 seconds faster, if it has bad brakes, suspension or reliability.The Mégane Renaultsport 250 is set apart by a bodykit that includes a dramatic front splitter, LED daytime running lights, widened sills and eighteen-inch wheels. A motorsport influence is obvious on the interior, where the seats are heavily bolstered and the analog tachometer includes audible and visual shift indicators. A special Renaultsport steering wheel with thumb grips and aluminum pedals help to set the mood.
The 2.0 liter turbocharged 16-valve engine produces 250 horsepower and 340Nm torque, a twenty-horse boost over the Mégane R26.R. The responsive twin-scroll turbo provides a broad powerband, and power is routed through a six-speed manual gearbox. The engine note has also been tuned in an effort to get the perfect burble.New Megane Renaultsport 250 UK 2010 Launch Announced: Reviews and Specification

The other feature is the Renaultsport Dynamic Management which controls the intensity of the Electronic Skid Control (ESC). At its most extreme the function can be totally switched off. Two chassis settings are available, the standard Sport setting which is more of an everyday setup and the stiffer Cup setting.
Styling enhancements include LED daytime running lights, an F1-inspired front bumper blade, side sills, wider wheel arches, a rear diffuser and an extended tailgate spoiler. The centrally-mounted tailpipe apparently gives out notes that can rival any comparable sports car.
The interior can be fitted with optional Recaro seats while the steering wheel is reach and height adjustable. Aluminium pedal covers are also included.
