To celebrate its third Formula 1 Constructors’ world title, Renault and Red Bull Racing have teamed up to create the limited edition Megane Renaultsport Red Bull Racing RB8.

The new flagship Megane Renaultsport is inspired by Red Bull Racing’s Formula 1 identity, but in a much more subdued fashion. It’ll be offered in a Twilight Blue exterior finish accented by Platinum Grey details.

Power comes from a 2.0-liter, turbocharged engine with 265 hp. The car is further made special thanks to Red Bull Racing branding, Recaro seats, R-Link multimedia and TomTom Live navigation system, Bridgestone Potenza RE05A tires and the latest Version 2.0 of the on-board R.S. Monitor.  The only available transmission is a six-speed manual.

Essentially, the limited edition model is a mechanically standard Renaultsport Megane 265 Cup except for the tires.

In total, 30 will be made for the UK market and will be available until September 30, 2013. Pricing will be announced closer to its launch.
