Police authorities in Madrid, Spain just took delivery of two Renault Megane RS units.

These might not be as impressive as the supercars in Dubai’s police fleet, but at least Madrid officers will use them for actual police work. Besides the usual police livery and mandatory equipment, the two cars have also been fitted with Kevlar-made front doors for added protection.

Bad guys on the run should keep in mind the Megane RS sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6 seconds before topping out at 158 mph (254 km/h) thanks to a four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine delivering 265 PS (195 kW) and 360 Nm (266 lb-ft).

As a reminder, last month Renault introduced an even hotter 275 Trophy version packing 275 PS (202 kW) as well as other enhancements such as a lighter Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, adjustable Öhlins Road & Track dampers, 19-inch wheels and a limited-slip differential.
