The Mégane F1 Team R26 comes with a six-speed manual gearbox, which provides for acceleration figures of 0-100km/h in 6.5 seconds, while 1000m is covered in just 26.6 seconds. A stiffened suspension with specific dampers improves handling over the standard car and increased stopping power is thanks to the upgraded four-pot Brembo brakes.
Visuals include red-painted brake callipers, anthracite 18in alloys and the optional but free go fast stickers located on the bumpers, doors and roof. Inside, an F1 labelled plaque and Recaro buckets ensure that passengers realize that the Mégane F1 Team R26 is a little bit special. Despite all of Renault's success in Formula One, the French car maker is still without a decent high-end performance model, and these hotted-up hatchbacks are of little consolation.
