Oh yes, that and what it costs. Today European prices have been revealed - but with an English release too - confirming that the "agile, efficient and versatile" Megane R.S. will cost €37,600 in manual Sport form and €39,400 with the EDC dual-clutch transmission. At today's exchange rate that's £33,100 and £34,700 respectively. For a Cup pack you'll need another €1,500 on the Continent, which is currently around £1,300. The release available rather confusingly states that the EDC car will be available to order from February but won't have the Cup option until September, whereas the manual car will go on sale in "spring 2018" and have the Cup option box ready and waiting to be ticked. Bizarre. As a reminder the Cup pack brings - like so many great fast Renaults before it - a lower, stiffer chassis as well as mechanical limited-slip diff and red Brembo brake calipers. You're getting the manual Cup, right?
All Meganes will get 18-inch 'Magny-Cours' wheels, aluminium pedals, hydraulic bump stops (like the Clio), grey brake calipers and a sports exhaust. At least in the specification sheet currently available.
For those of us who can remember a £12,995 Clio 172 Cup 15 years ago, the idea of a regular Renault Sport Megane beyond £30K may seem extreme. Very, very different cars, yes, but still. As a point of reference a Civic Type R GT is £32,995, a DSG and five-door Golf R is £34,790 and a Hyundai i30 N Performance - perhaps the Megane's closest rival in terms of power and remit - is £27,995.
