Speeding in France is about to get a wee bit trickier to get away with now that the Gendarmerie are getting 70 Renault Megane RS police vehicles on the prowl.

The new Megane RS police car will replace the currentSubaru Impreza fleet and will come in the blue and yellow color scheme as other French police vehicle. The Gendarmerie have even opted for the “Chassis Cup” version, which is the model with the best handling at high speeds. The Megane RS is powered by a new-generation 2-liter 16-valve turbocharged petrol engine which boasts maximum power of 250hp at 5,500rpm and peak torque of 340Nm from 3,000rpm. The vehicle’s speed tops out at 155 mph, leaving the drivers with lead feet little opportunity to get away.

Renault chose Durisotti, an approved Renault coach-builder, to fully transform their new fleet into true police vehicles with the special equipment necessary to catch speedsters. The result of their work is shown in the photos provided.

This police car is totally awesome. The maximum speed was 155mph. I wonder how much it was cost.

Yeah, the small size allows it to go into narrow streets and alleys. Another thing that they would love about this is that the Megane is quite sturdily built to take all that abuse.

I can say that the Megane is actually a nice choice for a police car. This one is quite nimble and handles well, which is good for pursuing criminals.
