This is an Exceptional Renault Megane Renaultsport F1Team R26R, regarded by many as one of the best Hot Hatches ever produced and an absolutely fantastic car to drive!
Factory Hot Hatch special, designed to conquer all and set the fastest production front wheel drive lap record at the world famous Nurburgring.
123kg’s lighter than the already lightweight and capable Megane R26, and with the addition of carbon fibre bucket seats, 5 point harnesses, rollcage, carbon fibre bonnet, polycarbonate rear quarter and rear windows, a limited slip differential, fully switchable traction control plus more, this is one hell of a fun and capable hot hatch, and one which we will most likely never see the likes of again from a mainstream car manufacturer... With prices steadily increasing year on year this is a modern classic for sure.
