French gendarmerie will have another reason to feel superior when they roll out in one of 70 new Renault Megane Coupé R.S. hatchbacks. Top speed's boosted to 160 mph and 0-60 mph time drops to 5.8 seconds. (Hat tip m2m!)
Renault has a history of building some fairly taut sporting versions of regular production econo-hatchbacks. The Renault Sport Mégane RS is no exception to the rule, bringing 250 turbocharged horses to the table.
