Following its arrival on UK shores, the R26.R has now set benchmark times at Silverstone, Bedford Autodrome, Millbrook and Bruntingthorpe.
At Silverstone, Drivers-Republic used the full 3.2-mile Grand Prix circuit, recording a stunning lap of 1 minute 19.4

Alongside six other world debuts from French marque Renault, this year’s Geneva motor show also witnessed the unveiling of the latest member of the New Mégane family, with the arrival of the Sport Tourer version.
In addition to its dynamic looks, New Mégane Sport Tourer has a distinctive character and lives up to the pledge made at the time of the hatchback version's release that every member of the New Renault Mégane family would have its own, clear-cut personality.

Since 2000, the successive variants of Clio Renaultsport have made it the best-selling performance hatchback in its class, with worldwide sales totalling more than 70,000 cars. The strengths of the chassis, brakes and steering of the Clio Renaultsport 197 combined with the precision of its gearbox have resulted in the model being widely praised as the class leader, by the media and demanding owners alike. To provide a match that is more closely tailored still to the demands and needs of its cust
Renault customers benefit from a choice of two MPVs which each have their own distinctive personalities. Scenic and Grand Scenic both feature taut, fluid lines that sweep across the generously-proportioned body panels to exude a sense of dynamism and robustness. Yet while the design of both versions shares an undeniable family likeness with the Megane’s other models, their profiles are quite different.
Like Megane Coupe, Scenic features a central grille flanked by satin-effect chrome finish
As the latest in a long line of Renault performance models, New Mégane Renaultsport 250 stands out through its exhilarating performance and handling.

Coming after Mégane F1 Team R26 and Mégane R26.R, New Mégane Renaultsport 250 profits fully from Renault

New design reinforcing Clio's family ties with New Mégane
New Clio sits squarely on the road and boasts revised styling, with the lines of the new headlamps now extending down to the lateral upturns of the front air intake. The broad grille in the lower part of the new front bumper sets off the dynamic styling with the presence of gloss black protective mouldings. The revised design of the rear lights extends the waist line across the hatch, while the uncluttered approach to the design of the
