Renault unveiled the 2012 Megane RS

Renault developed a facelift version of the Megane RS. The new model features a lot of styling upgrades. This is not all. The power of the engine was also increased with 15 horsepower and 20 Nm of torque. The name of the facelifted version is Renaultsport 265. The name refers to the total amount of power it can produce and that is 265 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque. The difference between this new model and the Mitsubishi Evo X in terms of power is very small. Let's be clear. The extra power is not the only reason the carmaker decided to revise the engine for the 2012 RS. The sound it produces was also improved. How was this possible? Well, the carmaker offered a more open exhaust system and also a reinforced sound pipe. The Renaultsport 265 is equipped with two rows of six LEDs, runs on 18- or 19-inch alloys. On the inside it features Recaro seats, red stitching, and black lacquer finish. The availability date and its price will be revealed a little bit later.
