A friend of mine spotted a grey one parked in a street in Richmond VIC on the weekend, so it might be sooner than expected!


Anyways, welcome :)

How do you pick the diff between 250 and 265


The only real way to tell unless it is optioned with the red package is the front lights.


DTRL have six bulbs instead of three.


Headlights have Black housings instead of the Chrome or Dark Grey on Xenon cars.


Also, Cup Model has different 18" wheels.

Search for the thread on this instead of starting a new one



Such an unnecessarily bitchy comment.......


True, but one must make allowance for F1 drivers, who can be real prima donnas...

I've heard (but please take with a very large rock of salt) that there is a 2 day press event on the 21 and 22nd of August.


I hope it's true!






I've now heard a second mention of 22nd Aug for a media release. This one from Renault Aus customer service after I sent a nastygram to Renault HQ. :wink:

Thanks guys, very informative site and can't wait to see the 265 in the flesh.

I probably would consider the black or white.

custom tune, intake, exhaust - easy 350 bhp.

I just need to move my MY 11 Porsche 997.2 S


I'll be happy to take your Porsche off your hands. :lol:

The wait is over :


Renault Megane RS265 launches in Australia




By Anthony Crawford | August 22nd, 2012



Print page



Renault Australia has launched the highly anticipated Renault Megane RS265 hot-hatch, replacing the equally acclaimed Megane RS250.


Inspired by Renault’s successful tender to the Gendarmerie Nationale (French Police) for a high-speed pursuit vehicle with a requirement for 265 horsepower (195kW), the Megane RS265 develops an additional 9kW and 20Nm of torque (for a maximum output of 360Nm) over its Megane RS250 predecessor.


The additional output from the Megane RS265’s 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine has also reduced its 0-100km/h-sprint time to a claimed six seconds flat. The car’s top speed is also up marginally from 250km/h to 255km/h.


Fuel consumption has also fallen by a claimed 5.7 per cent over the Megane RS250 to 8.2L/100km, with CO2 emissions down 190g/km.


The only transmission available for the Megane RS265 will be a six-speed manual unit, despite the fact that next-generation Renault Sport Clio will be available with a dual-clutch unit.




The car’s exhaust system features perforations and absorbers, which are said to heighten the exhaust note at idle and low revs (below 3000rpm). In the Sport setting the engine also produces a burble sound on overrun.


The Megane RS265 will be available from August 28 in three specification levels: the entry-level Cup, the mid-spec and sport-focused Trophy and the range-topping Trophy+.


The Megane RS265 Trophy+ is a direct response to the previous success of the special edition Megane Renault Sport 250 Monaco edition.


Pricing for the Renualt Megane RS265 line-up will start at $42,640 for the Cup, $47,140 for the Trophy and $51,640 for the Trophy+, before on-road costs are added.


Renault Australia has also secured an allocation of 100 special edition Megane RS265 Trophy 8:08 models in recognition of the 8:08mins lap time set by the Renault Megane RS265 around Germany’s Nurburgring Nordschleife in 2011.




In setting the new front-wheel-drive lap record, the Renault Megane RS265 broke the existing 2008 record set by the Renault Megane R26.R.


The Megane Trophy 8:08 is distinguished by its availability in only two colours: Renault Sport’s signature liquid yellow, and pearl white. In addition, there’s leather-trimmed Recaro seats, black steev alloy wheels with red piping wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza RE050 tyres, limited edition Trophy decals and bi-xenon directional headlamps.


Regardless of the specification, all Renault Megane RS265’s come with Renault Sport’s proven Cup chassis with a limited slip differential as standard.


The exterior changes to the new Renault Megane RS265 over the Megane RS250 are subtle, but include a reworked front end that now includes two rows of six LEDs along with chrome highlights and black headlight masks.


The five-colour palette for the core Megane RS265 range includes glacier white (solid), capsicum red (solid), star black (metallic), mercury (metallic) and lunar grey (metallic).The centre strake of the front bumper and F1-style blade, door mirror covers and rear diffuser are finished in gloss black across the range.


Inside, there are new interior trims and, depending on the specification level, red or yellow stitching on the seats, steering wheel and gear knob, complimenting the dashboard and seatbelts.




Other interior features include black lacquer accents for the centre console and air vent surrounds and carbon-look for the door trim inserts.


Options for the Megane RS265 Cup include satellite navigation with a reversing camera and park assist (standard on Trophy+), electrically operated heated black RS leather seats, RS red design pack and metallic paint.


Options for the Megane RS265 Trophy include leather Recaro seats with rear armrest, bi-xenon directional headlamps, front parking sensors and satellite navigation.


Options for the Megane RS265 Trophy+ include Recaro leather seats, metallic paint and RS red design pack.


Renault Megane RS265 pricing:


• Megane RS265 Cup – $42,640

• Megane RS265 Trophy – $47,140

• Megane RS265 Trophy+ – $51,640

• Megane RS265 Trophy 8:08 – $49,990
