Renault Megane R.S. 250 Monaco Grand Prix Limited Edition announced for Australia

August 29, 2011

A new Renault Megane Renault Sport 250 Monaco Grand Prix Limited Edition has been introduced into the Renault Australia lineup. The limited edition model offers a distinct theme of elegance and luxury, as well as sportiness, compared with the normal Renault Megane R.S. 250.

Just 50 examples of the limited edition Megane Monaco Grand Prix Edition will be headed to our shores, each equipped with a special build number and an array of luxurious features.

The Renault Megane RS 250 Monaco GP Edition will come with a set of 19-inch alloy wheels surrounding a four-piston Brembo brake package with red calipers. A set of bi-xenon adjustable headlights will also provide exterior evidence of the Monaco GP Edition.

Other exterior highlights include piano black trimming details, such as side mirror casings, spotlight surrounds and the rear diffuser. The headlights will also exhibit a black background for that shadowed look.

On the inside, the Renault Megane RS 250 Monaco GP Edition will come with new electronically adjustable and heated Monaco GP sports seats, a satellite navigation system inset into the dash fascia and a large glass moonroof for added elegance. There’s also a number of white detail revisions throughout.
