The Renaultsport-inspired GT recently launched is the flagship of the latest Megane range. The many features of the Renaultsport include the distinct trimmings of the interior and exterior, 4Control segment-first four-wheel steering, bespoke chassis settings, and the 205hp TCe engine paired with the dual-clutch seven-speed EDC transmission.
Its front bumper is designed to increase the level of its sportiness which goes well with the DNA of the Renaultsport. Complementing the front bumper is the special design of the grilles, both the upper part and lower part.
The car is made more aerodynamic by the wider air intake that is flanked with air scoops. As expected from a true Renault, it has a Dark Metal finish for the door mirror housings. Renaultsport also offers as an option the diamond-effect 18-inch GT-badged wheels.
Finishing the exterior are the two exhaust tailpipes located at the rear and that are chrome-plated. The tailpipes mirror the twin air scoops found at the front providing symmetry to the car. Renaultsport badging is found on the front wings and left-hand rear.
Moreover, the Megane GT also comes with aluminum pedals, a special gear lever, gearshift paddles mounted on the steering wheel and of course, the bespoke steering wheel.
The interior meanwhile is just as amazing and is clear evidence of the Renaultsport. Another eye-catching feature is the wrap-around seats with the chequered sports logo and blue stop stitching. With the standard headrest, they provide great comfort while improving firm lateral support.
There are three upholstery choices available for the Renaultsport. These are the Alcantara leather with the blue stripes, Alcantara leather that has black stripes, and fabric. Information needed by the driver can be obtained through an instrument that is then displayed on a screen.
Strengthening the already unique personality of the GT are the touches of blue inside the cabin that matches the Iron Blue color of the exterior. In addition to the amazing design, the Mégane GT is expected to be the first of its class to have the 4Control four-wheel-steering technology that has been perfectly calibrated by Renaultsport engineers.
This particular 4Control chassis makes sure that the rear wheels are precisely aligned in order to give maximum enjoyment while driving and to enhance responsiveness to improve safety.
It is the same system that makes sure of correct and proper handling when driving on twisty roads and that promotes stability when driving in high speeds. In emergency situations, the presence of the four-wheel steering assures fast responses.
The 4Control system is also able to increase the maneuverability either at slower speeds or even when parking. Finishing off the chassis package are the brakes, ESC, springs, and recalibrated dampers that provide versatility but not at the expense of comfort.
In terms of technologies, the Renaultsport also utilizes the specially developed technologies like the Launch Control and Multi Change Down. The former enables fast getaway from the standing start while the latter allows fast downshifting. Over-all, the Renaultsport has not only been made more precise and smoother but is now very relaxing to drive as well.
