Renault previously did not have a luxury model under its belt and the French automaker kept bustling its releases further up-market especially in its homestead. This hasn't produced an Initiale Paris variant of the brand new Megane. But the new Megane model has finally received its timely new flagship luxury trim called Renault Megane Akaju.
Megane Akaju is set to be the popular hatchback range's most luxurious trim level and is set to be displayed during the sale network's promotional week scheduled on June 15-19.
The most economical version bears a price tag of around €27,600 and rises to about €31,400. Choose the 3 alternative options previously mentioned and the price will increase to €33,000.Read the entire article Renault unveils Megane Akaju Limited Edition in France

For example, the Twingo 1.2 16V 75 is available for only GBP6,595, a full GBP2,300 lower than the standard Expression.Read the entire article Renault launches Bizu limited edition range
For those of you who just placed an order for a new BMW M5 (F90), you might like to pair it with a matching bicycle. The BMW M Bike Limited Carbon Edition is finished in Marina Bay Blue Metallic paint, exactly like that of the sports sedan.
However, if you want this bike, you have to act quickly. That is because it will be limited to 500 units only, each of which will be priced at 1,400 euros (around $1,674). The bicycles are made with hydro-formed aluminum frame, while the fork, the seat posts and spacers are all made of carbon fiber to reduce overall weight. For easier braking, it gets a set of hydraulic Shimano disk brakes.
As we all know, the BMW M5 comes equipped with a 4.4 liter biturbo engine that enables it to give out 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet (750 Newton-metres) of torque. The M5 is more powerful than its predecessor, which has an output of 575 horsepower (428 kilowatts) and 500 pound-feet (677 Newton meters) of torque.Read the entire article BMW reveals M Bike Limited Carbon Edition inspired by Marina Bay Blue M5 (F90)
In an exclusive speaking engagement with Car Advice during the ongoing 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, Lamborghini’s Maurizio Reggiani hints at introducing what he calls as the new version of a one-off supercar, even adding that this one-off could be completely sold prior to its revelation. This is comparable to the case of Centenario, which they had introduced with rear wheel steering and which was later on adapted into the Aventador S when it came into production. The director for research and development also said that the company is set to announce some new technologies to go with Lamborghini’s new design. The imminent announcement, he said, is what Lamborghini’s loyal patrons have actually been waiting for.
It can be recalled that Lamborghini had done this previously with the Sesto Elemento, the Veneno Roadster, the Concept J as well as for both the Reventon and the Reventon Roadster. As they did with the Centenario, the soon-to-be-revealed one-off will take the lead in introducing Lamborghini’s future design and technologies. Inevitably, it should give us a first look at the Aventador replacement that is due for release in 3 years.
No concrete details have been confirmed during the talks but Car Advice knew that the Lamborghini Urus will be revealed sometime this December. In the same way, it is likely the new one-off (which is currently without a name yet) will be introduced later within the year while the official public debut will probably have to wait until 2018. At the most, we should be expecting Lamborghini’s one-off supercar at next year’s Geneva Motor Show together with the new Urus.Read the entire article Lamborghini to introduce new limited-edition supercar, new techs coming very soon
Clearly, Renault is way ahead of many automakers with their all new Symbioz Concept. The concept isn’t intended for this year or the next as it’s targeted to be ready by 2030.
As seen at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, it is a five-door hatchback that can be converted into a space that functions like a living room. While presenting it to the audience, Renault showed how you can drive this all-electric into a house, park it, and turn it into an extra modular room. This appears to be the French automaker's interpretation of a mobile home.
The Symbioz is the next concept that Renault has come up with after the Trezor from last year's Paris Motor Show. It’s different in its own way. It has a low and flat roof design, a large greenhouse, and C shaped LED headlights and tail lights. When talking about the design, Renault argues that the Symbioz' appearance is suitable for the year 2030, when everyone will be driving nothing but electric cars.Read the entire article Renault Symbioz Concept can double as a mobile living room
The long-awaited 2018 Renault Megane RS has finally made its way to the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, after having been the subject of several spy photos and leaks. The Megane RS is definitely among the most-liked C-segment hot hatches as it comes with a number of technologies – including a turbo gasoline engine with two new transmission options.
It comes equipped with a 1.8-liter turbocharged gas motor with direct injection, like the one in the Alpine A110 sports car, instead of the older 2.0-liter turbo. This engine works with either a six-speed manual or a dual-clutch six-speed automatic transmission that includes paddle shifter and launch control, giving power to the front wheels. All this enables the Megane RS to carry out as much as 280 horsepower (205 kilowatts). It will also come with standard 355mm front discs with Brembo calipers that customers can swap for optional bi-material cast iron and aluminum discs.
But that’s not all that it can do, as customers can opt for the Megane RS Trophy version that should be out before 2019. This variant will have a little more power, giving out 300 horsepower (224 kilowatts). It is too early to provide numbers for the acceleration and top speed of both the regular and the Trophy variant, but stay tuned as we will probably find out by December this year.Read the entire article 2018 Renault Megane RS now has more power and tech
For those who are into pickup trucks, there’s good news as the new Renault Alaskan can now be yours as they expand to more countries in Europe. It had entered the South American market last year followed by its Colombian debut. The French automaker developed this model as an alternative to the Nissan Navara and the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, and it will be offering the one-ton pickup in Europe.
Under the hood of the Alaskan pickup is a 2.3-liter dCi diesel engine. Customers could either go for the base model with 160 horsepower (119 kilowatts) or the 190 horsepower (141 kilowatts) option. Both engines can be paired with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic. It has a towing capacity of 2,205 pounds (1,000 kilograms) and can haul up to 1,630 pounds (739 kilograms). The pickup is available in three driving modes including a two-wheel drive, a 4LO, or a 4H full AWD.
The functionality and performance of the Renault Alaskan are at par with competitors like the Ford Ranges and the Toyota Hilux, which are both currently out in the European market. Believe it or not, this truck can hit the 0 to 60 mile-per-hour (96 kilometers per hour) speed in only 12 seconds, before it reaches its top speed of 100 miles per hour (160 kilometers per hour).Read the entire article Renault Alaskan enters the European market
Donkervoort, the Dutch sports car manufacturer, is making the most of a limited run of the sold out D8 GTO RS, at only 40 units. But this time, an even rarer model will be made with only 15 examples - that is the Naked Edition of the said model. As of today, the company has already sent out 20 units of the standard model to their respective owners, as well as the very first example of the Naked Edition D8 GTO RS. It was delivered to its new owner located somewhere in Germany.
Naturally, the Naked Edition will stand out due to its eccentric design, but even more so with its striking Monte Carlo Blue Carbon finish. The carbon fiber body was then given a transparent paint that was developed by both Donkervoort and BASF’s upscale brand R-M. What makes this finish so cool is that you could still see the carbon fiber through it. Ninety-five percent of the bodywork is made out of the lightweight material, including the roll-bar trim, the headlight housing and the ignition cylinder housing.
To cut down some more weight, Donkervoort used some spray on carbon components on some areas instead of painting them, which really helped with the diet. By doing all this, one would expect the D8 GTO RS to be extremely light, and true enough, the special edition only weighs a total of 695 kilograms (1,532 pounds) - that is quite an impressive weight for a sports car.Read the entire article First Donkervoort Naked Edition D8 GTO RS has been delivered
The 2018 Renault Megane RS is scheduled to be revealed this September 12 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. However, months before its debut, we are already seeing leaked images of the hot hatch. This time, a Megane RS in a bold red paint emerged on Facebook and its images have been circulating the net. Looking at the images, it seems like the photos have been taken at Renault’s facility. We are assuming this because there are other prototypes around it that seem to be camouflaged.
The images reveal several details including the RS-specific checkered flag motif on the LED fog lights to the beefy diffuser that is complemented with the central trapezoidal exhaust tip. There is no doubt that this is the 2018 Megane RS, as you can spot the “RS” logos on both the front (below the diamond badge) and the rear (under the tail light) ends of the car.
One can definitely tell the difference between the Megane GT and the Megane RS. For instance, the new model has vented front fenders, flared wheel arches, and has added vents at the back. The RS is also much lower compared to the GT when it comes to the sporty suspension setup. Other than that, it comes equipped with large two-tone alloy wheels that are exclusive for the RS version.Read the entire article Leaked images: All eyes are on this red 2018 Renault Megane RS
The wait is over for those who have been waiting to see more of the 2018 Renault Megane RS. Though, the actual model will be officially revealed in September at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, patent images have already been published by World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). These images show the hatch's built from every angle, exposing all of its features without any kind of camouflage.
Overall, the performance model looks significantly sportier and more aggressive than its GT counterpart. The patent images had the same design elements from the teasers and spy shots that we have seen earlier. These elements include: flared wheel arches on the car's profile, huge air vents up front, and a trapezoidal exhaust tip.
Other than what we have already seen before, there are some bits that are new to us like the headlights up front that are not like the other Megane models, as well as the taillights on the rear end of the car. The bumpers just by the taillights also look more muscular with two side scoops. Like the Clio RS, the Megane gets the same checkered flag motif on the LED fog lights.Read the entire article Patent images of 2018 Renault Megane RS are here
Nowadays, it is rather inevitable that luxury pickups have been quickly making rounds, and they have served as a significant asset for Ram ever since the brand separated itself from Dodge. Ram presently has various luxury trims including the Long Horn, Laramie and Limited produced among the 1500, 2500 and 3500 models and now it looks like they will introduce another vehicle to their line-up. According to the Fiat-Chrysler owned truck manufacturer, these trucks will be given a new range topping trim labelled the Limited Tungsten Edition.
2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition will be added to the already stellar line-up of Ram. The ultra swanky truck will be offered on the 1500, 2500 and 3500 in the 3rd quarter of this year and it will fetch around $55,120 for the high-end trim on the 1500. The newest edition offers more awesome luxurious novelties onto the recent range-topping Limited trim. We can recognize these premium units by the outer shell that will don a dark chrome grille with RAM engraving. For the trim and badges, there are metallic accents to match them.
The bumpers, door handles, mirror caps and running boards reflect the body color while its headlights flaunt the black surrounds from the Sport unit. Adding a final touch to the exterior enhancements are the satin-finish variants of the Limited wheels. Buyers can choose to have the Tungsten Edition in Bright White, Bright Silver Metallic, Delmonico Red Pearl, Brilliant Black Crystal, Granite Crystal Metallic, True Blue Pearl or Pearl White. However, the Maximum Steel Metallic will only be offered on the 1500. The Tungsten Edition's interior is where the magic begins.Read the entire article 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition is the most luxurious pickup ever
The current generation of the Ford Focus will be axed next year as the new-generation 2018 Ford Focus RS will take its place, and this is sort of a good news - bad news situation. The bad news is that CarsDirect disclosed that the next-gen 2018 Focus RS is priced from $41,995- an increase of $5,000 compared to its 2017 model. It costs more than a Mustang GT premium and is priced much higher than the 2017 Honda Civic Type R's expected $35,000 price tag. But on a positive note, the extra $5,000 will give you an extremely well-armed RS.
If the disclosed price is in any way true, it will be $5,000 more expensive than the standard price of the current-gen Focus RS which demands only $36,995 (including $875 for destination cost). This sudden increase in price might seem shocking, but this 2018 Ford Focus will be released as a limited-edition model that will be well-equipped for the new model year. The hot hatch will have the RS2 package, which is set as an option on the current model for an added $2,785.
The package flaunts a heated, leather-bound Recaro seats paired with 8-way power adjustment for the driver, heated exterior mirrors and 3-spoke steering wheel and will also have a voice-activated navigation system. There's more, as there will be a carbon-fiber trim meant for door handles, handbrake lever and the bezel found around the boost gauge.Read the entire article 2018 Ford Focus RS Limited Edition has starting price of $41,995
Renault is bound to unveil the next generation of the 2018 Renault Megane RS at the 2017 edition of the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. All the French carmaker has done so far was to show off the new-gen Megane RS – albeit in a camouflaged form – at the Monaco Grand Prix. There have been spy shots of the hot hatch, but all of them were also in disguise.
However, an image of the new Renault Megane RS in all its crowning glory has been leaked on the Internet, providing us a good peek as to how the hot hatch actually looks sans any camouflage. This particular Megane RS has been painted white. As photographed, the Megane RS only shows a part of its rear end and its sides. As the image shows, the Megane RS features a pair air vents behind the front wheels, a body work that is laden with angles and a small roof spoiler. This roof spoiler features the same shade as the body, resulting in a more seamless look.
In addition, the image shows the new Renault Megane RS sport a rectangular exhaust protruding out from the center of the rear diffuser. Likewise, a pair of vents is also found on the rear end of the Megane RS. Under the right rear light can be found the RS badge. It also rides on the black and silver wheels that were previously seen on Megane RS prototypes.Read the entire article Image leak shows 2018 Renault Megane RS without camouflage
Enthusiasts know that in the automotive world, beauty (and power) always comes with a price – a very big price, at that. The Lamborghini Centenario is an example. Considering its beauty and power, the Centenario has a right for an expensive price tag. It gets more expensive when you factor in its exclusivity as only 40 examples will be available worldwide. Twenty units of this exclusive hypercar come as coupes, while the other twenty are convertibles. Come to think of it, with its price and a limited number of units available [worldwide], it will be quite rare to spot any one of these in just any ordinary neighborhood.
Last May, we’ve learned of the whereabouts of one Centenario, which is apparently flaunting its stunning bare carbon fiber exterior featuring blue accents in California – and our first time to spot the car not in is usual carbon fiber and yellow finish. Now, just a few weeks from this first sighting, two more examples have been spotted in the stateside. Photos of the said vehicles have already circulated online, leaving us jaw-slacked by its beauty.
The first of the latest two examples comes in Nuovo Giallo Orion yellow finish with carbon fiber accents – yet again, forgoing its usual carbon fiber body. The said majestic creation landed into U.S. soil just a few months after the first sighting, and it was delivered fresh to Lamborghini Beverly Hills to await its owner.Read the entire article Two new Lamborghini Centenarios have landed on US soil
Before the current generation Ford Focus exits in 2018, the American company hopes to satisfy its fans with its latest offering. This time, everyone is eagerly awaiting Ford Performance’s limited edition 2018 Ford Focus RS which will be released next year. The said performance compact hatchback will cater to Blue Oval hot hatch enthusiasts’ most requested limited-slip front differential and a new red exterior paintjob. Aside from this, the 2018 Ford Focus RS will get additional standard equipment as well as a few touch ups that will definitely set it apart from the standard RS. What remains unchanged, however, is its power (still at 350 horsepower) and the most important part of the RS – the drift button which allows its sideways behavior.
Ford made sure that inputs and feedback from customers and fans are used in the creation of this limited-edition RS. Furthermore, Ford invited a group of enthusiasts for a preview of the 2018 Ford Focus RS and even included them in the launch video. Cool, right? They were in for another treat as professional rally driver and master tire slayer Ken Block guided them through the whole reveal. The launch video is already available online.
In a press release, Ford Performance marketing manager Henry Ford expressed his excitement on the release of this limited-edition Ford Focus RS. To satisfy the high demand for these compact hatchbacks, Ford Performance took time to listen to their customers’ wants and needs. They actually spoke to “owners’ club members”, took time to read comments and suggestions in various enthusiast websites, and also visited and studied several Photoshop rendering forums just to get the gist of what people actually want from the RS.Read the entire article 2018 Ford Focus RS Limited Edition delivers enhanced driving experience
When French carmaker Renault gave the Initiale Paris treatment to the Clio, Espace, Captur, and Koleos, these models never looked so great – making customers wanting more of these vehicles. Now, Renault is applying the same treatment to the Scenic and its bigger sibling, the Grand Scenic. Thus, customers could now avail from the Renault the new Scenic Initiale Paris and the Grand Scenic Initiale Paris.
This means that the Renault Scenic and the Renault Grand Scenic – in their Initiale Paris versions – will now be wrapped in the exclusive dark prune-hued metallic Amethyst Black finish and the star-pattern grille. Likewise, both the new Scenic Initiale Paris and the Grand Scenic Initiale Paris feature LED fog lamps with cornering function and ride on specific 20-inch wheels. Of course, this exclusive edition of the Scenic and the Grand Scenic will don the 'Initiale Paris' branding just below the diamond logo.
As soon as occupants open the door of either the Scenic Initiale Paris or the Grand Scenic Initiale Paris, they will be greeted by the 'Initiale Paris' sill guards. They will be welcomed by an interior that is wrapped in black or grey-patterned full-grain Nappa leather upholstery with embossed 'Initiale Paris' letterings. This full-grain Nappa leather is the same material that wraps the electrically-adjustable seats with heating and massage functions. This high-end material also wrapped the steering wheel and the gearshift lever of either the Scenic Initiale Paris or the Grand Scenic Initiale Paris. The center console and around the infotainment system will feature a specific color finish.Read the entire article Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic receive Initiale Paris treatment
You guys are probably aware of the collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and Renault-Nissan. Knowing this, you would expect that both companies will come up with something impressive. Sources say that the partnership has been working on some new gasoline four-cylinder engines. However, rather than developing a more powerful engine, they seem to have come up with 1.2- and 1.4-liter engines instead. Why small engines, you might want to ask?
The reason behind the downsizing is because the German company aims to lower emissions while increasing the efficiency of the new engines. The new 1.2- and 1.4-liter units will benefit from direct injection, and will be a standard in the next generation base variants of the A-Class and B-Class lineups, according to reports from Autocar. There are currently eight cars lined up for Mercedes’ compact models for 2018 including: the A-Class hatchback, A-Class Sedan, CLA, CLA Shooting Brake, B-Class, GLA, a rumoured GLB, and an unknown model that has yet to be announced by the company.
The new four-cylinder units, which currently go under the codename M282, are being engineered exclusively for transverse applications. Therefore, these engines will not be available for use in larger Mercedes-Benz models. These new units will be joined by an updated version of the “M274” which will soon be given a codename that is “M260”. The M260 will be bigger and is going to be available in two versions: 1.6- and 2.0-liter units.Read the entire article Mercedes-Benz and Renault-Nissan to downsize engines, will use 1.2- and 1.4-liter powerplants
French multinational automobile manufacturer Renault has revealed its eDams team racer in preparation for the Formula E Paris ePrix along with the dashingly quick Zoe e-Sport Concept and a whole lot of production Zoe 40 units for retail purposes. Now we would like to wholly witness a race between the two high-powered electric vehicles.
Renault eDams team is a force to reckon with, as they’ve been leading the Formula E standings. The team celebrated the outstanding performance of its homestead by having a parade of their electric vehicles through the City of Light. Last Saturday in Paris, Sebastian Buemi earned his fifth win in six races of the current season of the Formula E. This means that he presently has a lead of 43 points in the electric racing series.
Leading the way of the procession are the Renault eDams R.S. 16 race car and the dapper Zoe e-Sport Concept in a video released by Renault. However, the drivers don’t follow a particular formation in the clip. But this doesn't mean that the Zoe e-Sport can't catch up with the R.S. 16. Renault confidently claimed that its conceptual hot hatch variant of the Zoe can leave you in the dust with its 62 miles per hour (100 km per hour) run, needing only 3.2 seconds to reach that coverage, and according to the French automaker, this performance can outrun the open wheel Formula E racer. That's a solid performance coming from a hatch.Read the entire article Renault Zoe e-Sport and Formula E racer lead EV parade in Paris
The Italian sports car Lamborghini revealed the first ever magnificent Centenario around the year 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show. And even though the Lamborghini Aventador SV and Centenario have a brooding similarity when it comes to performance, the Centenario was pretty much still a hit to loyal Lamborghini fans and car enthusiasts worldwide. Now a Lamborghini Centenario has arrived in the U.S., particularly at Newport Beach located in Costa Mesa, California. While it is the first ever Centenario to step on American land, it won’t be the last.
Largely based on the Lamborghini Aventador SV, the dashing Centenario utilizes the same 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 that will produce around 759hP (565 kW) and pure 508 lb-ft (688 Newton Meters) of torque, allowing the sports car to reach around 60 miles per hour (96 km per hours) needing only 2.8 seconds to do the job. Nevertheless, the top speed of the Centenario is limited to around 217 mph (349 kmh). The said horsepower is only 20hp more powerful than its predecessor, but the Centenario is considered a tad lighter due to its carbon fiber body. The Centenario weighs at an estimated 3,350 lbs (1,519 kg).
The Italian automaker claimed that performance-wise, the Centenario is more dominant compared to SV but not on a large scale. Only 40 units of the Lamborghini Centenario worth around $1.9 million each will be manufactured and sold globally. Specifically, there will be 20 coupes and 20 convertibles produced to celebrate the 100th birthday of founder Ferrucio Lamborghini, who was born on April 28, 1916. The swanky sports car that was delivered in the US flaunted its awesome bare carbon fiber exterior paired with blue accents to contrast its dark paint.Read the entire article First Lamborghini Centenario has landed on U.S. shores
BMW 2 Series gets a serious facelift, giving it more spunk. The Bavarian company just refreshed the not-so-new model with a limited M240i M Performance Edition. And though the differences between this model and the current model are very subtle compared to the 2 Series update, there’s nothing wrong with adding a few extra features in the special edition package. In fact, updates are almost always a good thing, right?
The company suggests that this M Performance Edition is meant to “express the athletic appeal of the sport coupe even more”. And a sportier car definitely means a faster one right? So let us start off with the upgraded 3.0-liter inline six engine that can yield up to 340 horsepower that is paired to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox - adding only an extra five horsepower over the standard 335 horsepower.
If they choose to get the xDrive all-wheel drive system, they won’t have a choice but get the automatic. Though the company promises that whichever one you get, the 2 Series will get you to 60 miles per hour in a little over four seconds.Read the entire article Limited-edition BMW M240i M Performance Edition is looking great
