Goodbye Third-Generation Renault Megane RS, You Wicked Track Tool, You

All the good things come to an end

The last mohican in the Renault Megane RS lineup rolled off the production line in Palencia, adding itself to the tally of 30,000 units sold since the model debuted in 2009.

You can buy the final Megane Renault Sport for £31,930, a price tag that promises a lot of goodies for those addicted to track days. For example, the Megane RS makes a splash exit thanks to the Liquid Yellow metallic paint and 19-inch Speedline alloy wheels.

There's no room for shallowness as the Renault Sport wizards fitted the hot hatch with Öhlins Road&Track adjustable dampers, Recaro seats and Alcantara-dressed steering wheel, gear lever, and handbrake.

Courtesy of the optional Cup Chassis pack owners can secure even more mechanical delights, like a limited-slip differential and Brembo brakes with four-piston red calipers.

In charge of rocketing this particular Megane RS around the track is a 2.0-liter turbo'ed gasoline powerplant with 275 hp under its belt, promising a 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) acceleration time of six seconds and a top speed of 158 mph (254 km/h).

The Megane RS has come a long way since the first generation made its debut in 2003 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, subsequently generating derivatives like the Megane Renault Sport 225 Trophy, 225 Cup and 230 F1 Team R26, including a diesel version in the form of the Megane Renault Sport dCi 175.
