Renault Megane R26.R – on sale October

2008 Renault Megane

The limited edition Megane Renaultsport R26.R is intended to be an enthusiast’s icon, says Renault. UK dealers will have just 230 units when it goes on sale in October.

The £22,990 two-seater is 123kg lighter than the standard R26 thanks to a carbon bonnet and removal of radio, front fog lamps, passenger airbag, rear seats, and most of its soundproofing, A 230bhp 2.0-litre engine hauls the car from 0-62mph in six seconds.

Fuel consumption is 33.2mpg; CO2 is 199g/km.

Renault also showed its Laguna Coupé Concept, which will go on sale in November, sharing the concepts looks.

Underpinned by the four-wheel steer 4Control chassis, the coupé will feature a new 235bhp V6 dCi engine.

A Megane Coupé Concept will be launched next year.
