2012 Renault Megane RS (UK Market)

The new model sports a more  powerful version of Renault’s 2.0-liter force-fed four thanks to an  increase to the turbo boost pressure by 0.2 bar to 2.5 bar along with a  revised air intake system. These changes help lift output by 15hp to  265hp and peak torque by 20Nm (14.8 lb-ft) to 360Nm (266 lb-ft). 
The  driver can select between two power settings, with the default mode  allowing for 250hp and 340Nm (251 lb-ft) of torque for a five per cent  improved fuel consumption, while the Sport mode returns an unrestricted  output of 265hp and 360Nm (266 lb-ft). The Sport mode is activated  through the ESC button and also enhances the car’s exhaust note. 
In  Sport mode, the Megane RS 265 completes the 0 to 62mph (100km/h) sprint  in 6.0 seconds and reaches a top speed of 158mph (254km/h), an  improvement of 0.1 seconds and 2mph respectively over the outgoing 250hp  model.
