(Worldcarfans) - Renault has joined forces with the French daily sports newspaper L'Equipe to produce a limited edition of the sport saloon, coupe and sport tourer versions of Megane. Particular attention has been paid to the looks of Megane L'Equipe which features specific upholstery, 16-inch aluminium alloy wheels, foglamps, leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear lever knob and a radio-CD with MP3 playback. The new limited edition car can be ordered with either the 1.4 or 1.6 petrol engines or with the 1.5 dCi diesel powerplant.
Megane L'Equipe will go on sale in March 2007 at a price that is just €100 above that of the equivalent Megane Authentique.
The Megane family sees the arrival of the new limited edition Megane L'Equipe which has been developed in association with France's best-selling sports newspaper and which covers the model's sport saloon, coupe and sport tourer versions.
The limited edition boasts purposely dynamic exterior looks which are underpinned by its 16-inch aluminium alloy wheels, foglamps and special L'Equipe decorative branding. A total of ten body colours - including eight metallic tints - are available, including Pavot Red which is specific to this limited edition car. Metallic options are combined with integral paint.
Inside, Megane L'Equipe comes with specific ' Papeete' upholstery, anodized charcoal grey decorative features, leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear lever knob and a radio-CD with MP3 playback.
Megane L'Equipe can be ordered with either the 1.4 16V 100hp or 1.6 16V 110hp petrol engines mated with either manual or automatic transmission (automatic transmission with 1.6 16V engine only). Diesel fans can choose between the 1.5 dCi 85 and 105hp powerplants, with or without particulate filter (1.5 dCi 105hp only). Both diesel engines stand out as leaders in their respective categories in the realms of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions; the 1.5 dCi 85hp sips fuel at a rate of just 4.5 litres/100km (combined cycle) and emits just 120g of CO2/km.
