That exhaust note on the R26 R is great.

Unless you need 4 doors why would you even consider this as an option at this price......just madness.

Great video and does a good job comparing it back to back with the R26.R. Thanks for sharing that.

enjoyed it alot, and the price kinda makes sense

50k for a low volume car that's a lot faster round the ring than a similarly priced RS3 / A45 but will be vastly more fun to drive

72k with carbon rims and brakes seams about right, but as harry said they only expect to sell 2 of those with 1 being the demo

i would still pick the R26R thou

What makes you think the Megane will depreciate to 25K considering only 2 will make it to the U.K?

I doubt the Meg is going to suffer any depreciation; as per Harry's video a mint R26.R is the same price now as it was when it first released. The Trophy-R is a halo car that will suffer maybe single-digit depreciation at most.

Also the only reason you need the rear doors on the Megane is so you can store away the £18k worth of CF wheels.

Because it's a Renault and French so is bound to depreciate heavily, just look at the Clio V6 and R26R.......... errr maybe not.

Love the ignorance!

What if you’ve already got a garage full of rare performance cars, and just want to add the most hardcore hot hatch on the market to it?

Although if I could get a fully specced one of these for £25k in three years I’d be delighted

Pissed, I couldn’t give a flying fk what it’s worth or how it goes round a race track, its was just an off the cuff comment, lol, it’s just looks ok and to be honest that’s how i choose my car, if it looks great happy days, the Porsche is a stunner, It too is fast around a track but as said, I could care less, that r26r might be a fantastic drive, it would need to have something going for it as fking brutal looking.

That is a shedload of money for any Renault, no matter how good it proclaims to be.

That's very true if badge rather than function is of prime importance to you. Nothing wrong with that BTW but just remember that different people have different priorities.

And only 32 in that spec in the world. So the idea that they will be 25K in 3 years is laughable.

I’d still have that lovely gt4 every day of the week esp with that lovely flat 6 again.
