For the second year in a row, Renault Megane R.S. will be available in the colours of Red Bull Racing. The exclusive Crépuscule Blue finish takes its inspiration directly from the race team’s famous colours. In addition to its sporty credentials, it stands out as particularly elegant, too, thanks to exterior Platinum Grey details in F1 blade, door handles, door mirror housing and rear lip spoiler, which harmonise splendidly with the striking Crépuscule Blue body colour. Last but not least, a monochrome laurel on the rear side windows celebrates the team’s 2012 Constructors’ world title. Megane R.S. Red Bull Racing RB8 is shod as standard with the same Bridgestone tyres that helped Megane Trophy to establish a new lap record for the Nürburgring. These high-performance tyres are fitted to exclusive 19-inch black wheels with grey pin striping.
Inside, the new limited edition version comes with a number of exclusive features, including Red Bull Racing branding on the numbered aluminium sill guards and carpet mats. The same logo appears on the head rests of the Recaro seats which are trimmed in a new leather/fabric upholstery. This limited edition version marks the availability of the in-dash, connected R-Link multimedia tablet for all Megane R.S.’s. The system’s six functions (navigation, telephony, multimedia, vehicle, systems and R-Link Store applications catalogue) are controlled using either the touch screen display, the voice command function or the joystick situated on the centre console.
Along with R-Link, there is now also the 2.0 version of R.S. Monitor which fans of sporty driving will particularly appreciate. R.S. Monitor 2.0 features a new, more user-friendly and intuitive interface which uses R-Link’s seven-inch colour display, special Red Bull Racing home page, certain information displayed in 3D form, data can be saved on a USB dongle, and real-time access to power output data, 0-100kph times, GG diagramme, etc.
The limited edition Renault Megane R.S. Red Bull Racing RB8 will be marketed in 26 countries. Sales in France will begin at the end of June, with prices starting from €36,000. If you want one, you have to make your order before September 30, 2013.
