It seems that Australians have a soft spot for the RS models from Renault and now they have the chance to enjoy the newly launched 2015 Megane R.S. 275 Cup Premium, which will be offered from $52,990 and will join the 2015 Renault Megane R.S. 265 Cup, already available from $43,990.
Justin Hocevar, the CEO of Renault Australia, better explains the high-value that the Megane R.S. models have in Australia, stating that “Australia has been comfortably inside the top 3 destinations for the Megane R.S. since its arrival here. With the arrival of the even higher specification Megane R.S. 275 Cup Premium, driving enthusiasts can now access an example of this powerful and luxurious iconic machine.”
The 2015 Renault Megace R.S. 275 Cup Premium is long praised by Renault representatives, stating that the model boasts with a lot of mechanical parts carried over from the 265 version, meaning the high-performance Brembo brakes, the mechanical limited-slip differential, the R-Link interface, the R.S. Monitor or the 7.0-inch touch-screen display with satellite navigation.
The exterior of the 2015 Renault Megace R.S. 275 Cup Premium is coming with some interesting tweaks, like the 19-inch Black Speedline Turini wheels, along with the lightweight Akrapovic exhaust system.
In the engine department, the 2015 Renault Megace R.S. 275 Cup Premium will fit a 2.0-liter turbo with a good 280 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque, with the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h being done in 6.0 seconds, the same performance figure found in the 265 version as well.
