The great hot hatch is going to a well-deserved retirement.

Over the weekend Renault announced the final example of the third generation Megane RS hot hatch has rolled off the Palencia production line on 6th July. It turns out the very same vehicle is now on sale in the United Kingdom.

After almost seven years on the market and around 30,000 sales, the current Megane RS is going to a well-deserved retirement. You still have the chance to own a brand-new third-gen Megane RS that comes nicely equipped with 19-inch Speedline alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and Ohlins Road&Track adjustable dampers. It is available at Arnold Clark Renault Dundee.

2015 Renault Megane Renault Sport 275 Cup-S

The interior features an Alcantara steering wheel, gear lever and hand brake, Recaro Seats, Handsfree keycard, Renault Sport Monitor V2 on-board performance tracking, and R-Link multimedia system including satellite navigation.

The right-hand-drive 275 Cup-S model is motivated by the familiar 2.0-liter, 275-horsepower (202 kilowatts) turbocharged petrol engine. This is the same unit that powers the limited-edition 275 Trophy-R, which was the fastest FWD car to go around the Nurburgring back in June 2014 with a time of 7 minutes and 54.36 seconds. Just as a reminder, currently the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S is the record-holder on the track with 7:49.21 minutes.

Farewell, Renault Megane III RS!
