The new Renault Megane Coupe that was revealed at the Paris Auto Show at the beginning of this month is now featured in the Need For Speed: Undercover starting November 21st.

Renault Megane Coupe featured in Need For Speed

Mégane Coupé’s sporty, racy looks convinced the developers of Need For Speed to incorporate the new model in the prestigious line-up of exceptional cars featured in the game. The game’s development team sought to reproduce New Mégane’s outstanding performance and handling characteristics as accurately as possible based on information supplied by Renault. The resulting graphics, sense of power and roadholding ability are simply stunning, while the new ’Heroic Driving’ graphic engine ensures a breathtaking driving experience at the wheel of Mégane Coupé which players will be sure to appreciate!

After Renault revealed the three-doors Megane at the Paris Auto Show, they are now busy developing a flagship Renaultsport version to replace the outgoing R26 and to compete with the Golf GTI and Focus ST .

Under the hood Renault will place the current R26’s 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, producing at least 230bhp. It will also be lighter than the current R26 meaning better performances: a 150mph top speed and a 0-60mph time of less than six seconds, plus better economy and emissions.

The third model in Renault’s line-up at the Paris Auto Show is the Mégane Trophy, a concept that takes its inspiration from the lines of new Mégane Coupe .

Renault Megane Trophy

Under its composite outer skin, new Mégane Trophy features the same mechanicals as the current car, including an FIA-homologated sports-prototype tubular chassis, a mid-rear V6 3.5 24V engine, a semiautomatic gearbox with steering wheel-mounted paddle shift, double wishbone suspension with adjustable dampers and 18-inch wheels and Michelin tires.

A new inlet manifold, which is fed by roof-mounted air-ducts, has taken engine power from 330 to 360hp. Renault claims that the aerodynamic gains and the extra power output of the V6 3.5 24V engine will enable new Mégane Trophy to lap in times similar to those of a Porsche GT3 .

To all those who are drooling over this now, remember even if the Trophy does make it to production, Renault is still keeping its hand out of the North American market.

Press release after the jump.

Renault unveiled at the Paris Auto Show the production version of the Mégane Coupé Concept unveiled at the Geneva Show in the spring of 2008.

New Renault Mégane Coupe is equally inspired by the passion associated with the automobile. Its extremely dynamic frontal-styling looks feature a grille comprising two outer air-scoops picked out by a satin-finish chrome trim that runs either side of logo, as well as a central air-intake incorporating a mattblack crossbar. The headlamps, which prolong the lines of the two air-scoops, provide the vehicle with a strong, clear personality. The crease lines of the bonnet sweep up the bonnet to the windscreen pillars and continue via the raked windscreen and sloping roofline to produce a particularly dynamic silhouette.

The dCi 85 and dCi 105 engines, which have been widely praised for the performance and driving pleasure they deliver, have been joined by the dCi 90 and the particulate filter-equipped dCi 110. Every one of these engines emits less than 120g of CO2/km (118g/km for dCi 85 et 90, 120g/km for dCi 105 and 110) while the new dCi 130 profits from the dCi range’s most advanced technology in terms of combustion and turbocharging to return CO2 emissions of just 135g/km.

Depending on market, the petrol range available for New Mégane and New Mégane Coupe will comprise the 1.6 16V 110hp, as well as the 2.0 16V 140hp and the TCe 180. The 2.0 16V will be available from launch with a six-speed manual gearbox, while continuously variable transmission will be introduced with this powerplant at a later date. Renault’s latest petrol engine, the TCe 130 will be added to the catalogue in the spring of 2009.

actually this is more of a photoshop job than a spy shot, but it should give a pretty good idea of how the future Megane III RS Sports will look like. The RS version of the Euro-only Renault will likely feature an air extractor, a central exhaust, a guard on the ground or lowered rims 18-inch wheels.

While not much is currently known about the car, we’ll keep you up to date when new details come in.

The 2009 Megane will make its world debut next month at the Paris Auto Show, but, as usual, it couldn’t remain a secret until its official debut; the Spanish web-page KM77 revealed the first official images today. The 2009 Megane’s design is inspired by both the Megane Coupe Concept and the new Laguna .

No word yet on what will power Renault’s bread and butter small hatch, but more info should become available as we get closer to the Paris Auto Show.

Although Renault does not currently sell cars in the U.S., it does share a partnership with Nissan. So it’s always good to keep tabs on Renault, because you never know what may show up on these shores wearing a Nissan badge.
