Renault Australia has announced the availability of the exclusive Megane RS 250 Australian Grand Prix Limited Edition as the French manufacturer celebrates its 35th year in Formula One.
The Renault Megane RS 250 AGP comes hot on the heels of the Monaco Grand Prix limited edition, which arrived in August 2011 and – according to Renault – attracted strong customer demand in Australia.
Priced from $49,990 before on-road costs, the Megane RS 250 AGP is $3000 more expensive than the standard production RS 250 Trophee.
The extra investment gets you 19-inch Steev alloy wheels with red piping and R.S. badging, red Brembo brake calipers, and track-proven Bridgestone RE050A tyres. High-gloss black paint and a full fixed glass roof enhance the exterior look.
The Megane RS 250 AGP also features bi-xenon directional headlights, front and rear parking sensors, satellite navigation, and black leather Renault Sport Recaro front seats.
Just 50 Australian Grand Prix limited edition models have been made available to local Renault customers, with the cars set to hit Australian showrooms next month. Each one comes with an individually numbered plaque to confirm its build number in the limited production run.
The 2012 Renault Megane RS 250 AGP will have a high-profile role at the F1 Grand Prix in Melbourne. On March 12, it will race the Renault Jet Pack Man at the race circuit, and will be on display inside Albert Park from March 15-18.
