Renault is introducing a special edition of the Megane RS 265 to celebrate Red Bull's drivers' and constructors’ triumph for the fourth consecutive season in Formula 1.
It was earlier this year in May when Renault introduced a limited-run Megane RS 265 as a celebration to Red Bull's domination in 2012 and now they are back with a virtually identical special edition model which celebrates Red Bull's triumph in both drivers' and constructors' championships of the 2013 Formula 1 season.
Renault plans on making just 120 units and all of them will have an exclusive Dusk Blue paint scheme with platinum detailing. As you would imagine, the vehicle boasts "Red Bull Racing" badging and comes with front Recaro seats, R-Link Multimedia and TomTom Live systems, as well as an on-board RS Monitor 2.0.
The vehicle sits on 19-inch glossy black "Steev" alloys shod in Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires, while on the inside it gets alloy foot pedals, leather-wrapped steering wheel, a glossy black center console and a platinum gear knob.
The hardware package includes a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine outputting 265 HP (195 kW), a limited-slip differential, grooved brake discs with red Brembo front calipers, as well as a stiffer setup for the dampers, springs and anti-roll bar.
The Renault Megane RS 265 Red Bull RB8 Limited Edition is already available on order and has a starting price in Australia of 49,990 AUD.
