28th February, 2012

To celebrate the 2012 Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix, Renault Australia is launching the Mégane RenaultSport 250 Australian Grand Prix Limited Edition.

As a centre point of Renault’s 2012 Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix activities, the Megane RenaultSport AGP will be making its debut on Monday 12th March in a race off with Renault Jet Pack Man on the Albert Park circuit. Following this the vehicle will be on display at Albert Park in F1 Central for the 4 day event.

The Megane RenaultSport AGP is immediately distinguished by gloss black paint and a fixed glass roof, which was first seen on the Monaco Grand Prix limited edition.

The striking exterior looks are further enhanced by gloss black 19-inch Steev wheels with a red piping, as seen on the Megane RenaultSport 250 Trophy in Europe, enhanced by the hallmark RenaultSport red Brembo brake callipers. The wheels display the RenaultSport badge in the centre and are shod with Bridgestone RE050A tyres.

These asymmetric, ultra-high-performance tyres incorporate dynamic sporty handling and a quiet, comfortable ride to meet the rigorous demands of prestige performance vehicles. The inner and outer tread design is derived from Bridgestone's winning Formula 1 technology and offers outstanding grip and responsive handling in both dry and wet conditions. On Megane RenaultSport Trophy, these tyres contributed to the record set by RenaultSport on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

The racing-inspired interior is further enhanced by black leather Renault Sport RECARO height adjustable front seats.

In response to customer feedback and demand, the limited edition will also include integrates satellite navigation, bi-xenon directional headlights and front and rear parking sensors.

Only 50 Renault Megane RenaultSport AGP will be sold in Australia and each will feature and individual plaque. The Megane RenaultSport 250 AGP has a manufacturer’s list price* of $49,990*.

Commenting on the launch of this motor sport-inspired limited edition Justin Hocevar, Managing Director of Renault Australia, said: “I am very excited to be introducing this new limited edition. We experienced a very strong customer demand when we introduced the Monaco Grand Prix inspired limited edition in August 2011 and based on our customer feedback we jumped at the opportunity to create this extraordinary Mégane R.S. AGP.”

“The Mégane R.S. AGP is the ultimate package! We have ticked every box in the building of this car and anticipate very strong customer demand.”

“To celebrate the vehicle’s launch we are launching with a 3.9% finance rate. It is now more attractive than ever to purchase the award-winning R.S. 250.”

The Megane RenaultSport AGP will hit local Renault showrooms in March.
