Me­gane’s hard­core his­tory

Motor (Australia) - - EXPOSED -

THE MODEL that put the Me­gane RS on the hot-hatch map is the stripped out and caged R26.R. En­dowed with ‘only’ 169kW, the big-bummed orig­i­nal siz­zled at the ’Ring in ’08 with a time of 8:16.9sec. Next up, the 250 Cup, re­ceived a stiff­ened chas­sis over the Sport and more track-fo­cused sus­pen­sion. Fi­nally, the 275 Tro­phy-R is of­ten her­alded as the best bum-drag­ger – with an ad­dic­tive in­duc­tion noise. It lapped the Nur­bur­gring in 7:54.36sec in 2014.
