Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Floride

After the success of the last year's model, Renault was proud to introduce the Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Floride, which represents a limited edition to just 1,600 numbered examples, of which 250 are destined for France, version of Megane Coupe-Cabriolet, boasting a full-leather treatment together with state-of-the-art performance and equipment. Its public debut is scheduled to take place at the Brussels Motor Show on January 10, 2012 and it is priced at 33,100 Euros, being available to order in France beginning with December 1, 2011. The Floride of the 1960s is well-known for symbolizing freedom and an appeal to a pleasant lifestyle and the new version is able to bring the same Floride spirit to the Cannes Film Festival, being more chic due to its two-tone red and ivory leather upholstery. The pastel shade draws direct inspiration from the catalogues of the swinging sixties, while the piano black panoramic roof beautifully contrasts with the car's classic Floride Ivory livery. Echoing the whitewall tyres that were very appreciated in the fifties, the standard 17-inch Sari aluminum alloy diamond-effect wheels appear to be also finished in ivory. The elegant and stylish interior is meant to pay a tribute to the original Floride as it is highly distinctive thanks to its red upholstery and the steering wheel which is wrapped in two-tone red/ivory leather of the finest quality. Furthermore, the numbered plaque located on the centre console is one of the finest details. Comfort is ensured by dual-zone automatic climate control, glass wind deflector, electrically-folding door mirrors and Renault hands-free key card. The active safety features include six airbags, tyre pressure monitoring system, spare wheel and ABS with emergency brake assist.
