To celebrate the success of Renault in both the 2005 Constructors' and Drivers' Formula 1 World Championship titles, the Limited Edition "Renault F1 Team" version of Mégane Renault Sport lines up alongside the 165kW 5-Door version in the 2006 range.

Fitted with the acclaimed "Cup Chassis" to re-inforce cornering performance and dynamic rigidity and clothed in the new aggressive yet sleek bodywork of Mégane Renault Sport 2006, the Renault F1 Team version clearly has the means to deliver what it promises.

The Car

Performance is inherent in its genes. Shod with distinctive lightweight 18" anthracite spoked alloys, the Renault F1 Team version can easily be distinguished from its stable mates thanks to Renault F1 Team detailing on the front and rear bumpers and sides, and an interior of similar intent.

The Renault F1 Team also features lightweight Recaro seats as well as climate control, cruise control with speed limiter and a CD front loader MP3 player. Only 1 450 units are being produced worldwide, with about 140 units to be made available in South Africa. Each Limited Edition Renault F1 Team has an individually numbered plaque, adding further to its unique status.

The Renault F1 Team features the race-bred Power Start launch control system. This feature, unique to the Limited Edition, allows an optimum amount of traction and power to be transmitted to the road from a starting position without having to lift the throttle, thanks to a fine-tuning of the Electronic Stability Control (ESP) and Traction Control (TC) systems.

On most ESP/TC systems, lifting the clutch at high revs automatically limits the engine torque to prevent wheelspin causing the engine to 'bog down'. The new Traction Control System programmes the system to recognise when the driver demands a performance start.
