The new addition to Renault’s Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet range —a special series named Exception— makes a great start to 2007, set to be an eventful year in Renault’s product release schedule. The new car is based on the Dynamique trim version and includes stylish exterior feature such as 17" aluminium wheels, satin-chrome roof arch with black roof crossmember, and body colour throughout (except with the Roy Blue colour).

Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet Exception will be available in a choice of four body colours, including a special Blue-Grey finish exclusive to this special series.

Interior design highlights include two-tone leather upholstery in a moleskin and dark carbon colour scheme, with featured stitching in light grey-beige for the seats, door panels, front central armrest, steering wheel and gearshift bellows.

The central dashboard fascia, central vent surrounds and dashboard trim are in satin-chrome paint finish, a feature also found on the handbrake lever. Attention to detail appears in features such as the light grey dial background, the dark carbon door-handle finish, and the special front floormats.
