Renault Megane RS to be 'ultimate hot hatch'

Renault Megane RS to be 'ultimate hot hatch'

Drivers' search for the "ultimate hot hatch" could well be over after Renault announced a new collaboration with performance specialist RS Tuning.

The French manufacturer has enlisted RS to tweak its Renaultsport Megane 250.

RS Tuning, a name synonymous with tuning in the UK, is to launch a special Stage 2 package in order to boost the performance of Renault's 2.0-litre turbocharged hot hatch.

A spokesman for Renaut confirmed: "RS Tuning's Stage 2 package consists of an alloy Forge Motorsport high flow intercooler, a choice of sports catalyst or cat bypass pipe, a Milltek stainless steel performance exhaust system and a specially-developed RS Tuning ECU remap for the 250's F4Rt engine.

"The results of RS Tuning’s enhancement work on the 250 bhp Renaultsport RS250 are stunning, with peak power being boosted by a substantial 70 bhp to a dyno proven maximum of 320 bhp at 5500 rpm."

Driving enthusiasts looking to get the most from their Megane can have the tuning package fitted with prices starting at £2,199.
