Renault unveils new model details

Renault has released the details of its limited edition Megane Renaultsport model which will be available in showrooms next month.

UK customers can buy the French car manufacturer's new Megane Renaultsport 265 Trophy flagship model for £27,820.

The newcomer boasts a powerful engine and is expected to be the fastest on-the-road Renault car ever.

The new model will feature Formula 1-inspired high-performance Bridgestone Potenza RE050A.

The Megane 265 Trophy is designed like the Cup chassis version but includes extra core equipment such as Recaro seats with yellow seatbelts and detailing, Renaultsport Monitor on-board performance tracking as well as a UK numbered plaque.

Drivers planning to buy the 265 Trophy will be able to take advantage of free access to the 2012 Renaultsport UK trackday calender worth almost £650.

This will enable new owners to gain access to some of the UK's top circuits such as Brands Hatch and Silverstone.

Its exclusivity will please British buyers as global production of the model is limited to 500 units, 50 of which are heading to the UK.
