Renault has launched the GT220 modification for the Megane model lineup.
Available for the Hatch, Coupé and Sport Tourer variants, the GT220 comes equipped with a Renaultsport-engineered chassis, 18-inch Serdard alloy wheels, ventilated 320 mm front discs and 260 mm solid rear brake discs, as well as a more progressive servo-assistance thanks to the fitment of a new RS master cylinder.
In terms of design, the Megane GT220 features a new front bumper with a reshaped central air intake, while at the back the bumper has a lower section finished in body color and a new aerodynamic diffuser.
Power is provided by a 2.0-liter 16-valve turbocharged petrol engine, generating 220 HP (162 kW) at 4,750 rpm and 340 Nm (250 lb-ft) of torque at 2,400 rpm. Driving the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission, this unit enables the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 7.6 seconds with a top speed of 240 km/h (149 mph).
