To celebrate third Formula 1 Constructors’ world title, Renault has unveiled a limited edition Mégane Renaultsport Red Bull Racing RB8.

Power comes from a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 265hp. Other highlights include stiffer springs, dampers, anti-roll bar, limited slip differential, grooved discs with Brembo callipers that are also found on the hot Megane Renaultsport 265 Cup.
