Renault unveils limited edition Megane Renaultsport Red Bull Racing RB8

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

The Megane Renaultsport Red Bull Racing RB8 takes its inspiration from Red Bull Racing’s Formula 1 car featuring an exclusive Twilight Blue finish with Platinum Grey detail.

The limited edition Megane also boasts Recaro seats, R-Link multimedia and TomTom Live navigation system, Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tyres, plus the latest Version 2.0 of the on-board R.S. Monitor. Interior also has plenty of Red Bull Racing branding like numbered aluminium kickplates and carpet mats. The logo appears on the headrests of the Recaro seats which are trimmed in a new leather/fabric upholstery.

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.

Just 30 cars are destined for UK. Order books open in mid-June and pricing will be confirmed shortly before.
