The new Renault Clio and Mégane World Series models are based on the existing Dynamique trim. They cost £500 more than their Dynamique equivalents, but come fully loaded with exclusive sporty styling and badging.
The World Series is available as a 1.2 petrol, 1.2 TCe turbo petrol or 1.5 dCi 86 turbodiesel. Added equipment consists of a full sports bodykit and World Series by Renault badging. Prices start at £12,170, and choosing a WSR special rather than adding these options to a standard Dynamique will save buyers £680.
In addition to the bodykit and badging, the World Series versions also gain 17-inch alloy wheels. Priced from £16,595, Mégane WSR specials work out £1,190 cheaper than adding the separate options and £940 cheaper than on three-door .
The Mégane WSR versions are available with a 1.6-litre petrol engine or 1.5-litre dCi 106 turbodiesel.
Renault World Series racing
These new special edition models commemorate Renault’s World Series racing events, and are being launched to coincide with the 2009 UK event taking place at Silverstone on 4-5 July. Free to the public, the Renault World Series is a demonstration of all of the French carmaker’s current competition machinery, including Formula 1 and Formula Renault.
The Renault World Series special editions are available to order now, and arrive in showrooms on Monday 6 July.
