Now that the Geneva Motor Show has come and gone, we now head back to the real world with nothing but good memories from a highly successful event. The rush from Geneva was understandably high; so we kind of expected that the next couple of days would consist of a collective exhale from the entire auto industry before moving on back to work.

Thankfully, French automaker Renault and tuning firm Superchips are keeping us on our toes with the release of a newly modified performance program for the RenaultSport Megane 250.

Our love for sports hatchbacks notwithstanding, Superchips’ ECU remapping of the RenaultSport Megane 250’s engine is something that we definitely took notice of. The program, which will be available for any Megane 250 model sold from 2010 onwards, will give the car a performance boost of around 49 horsepower and 66 Nm of torque. As a result, the Megane 250’s R26-sourced 2.0-liter engine’s power output jumps from 250 horsepower and 304 Nm of torque to just a shade under 300 horsepower and 370 Nm of torque. Even more impressive is the fact that despite the performance boost, the Megane 250’s fuel efficiency numbers will remain at 33 mpg.

So if you have a Megane 250 in your garage and you’re dying to get a jump on those ponies under its hood, the Superchips ECU upgrade program is available at 445 GBP and comes with a 12-month warranty.

I simply love the aesthetic design of this one, and I have to agree that it is already looking great on that body paint but I’m quite wondering on what will be the interior of this one will look like.

Renault Sport really had an impressive look, and I must say that it is one of the best good-looking cars that I saw. Moreover, I have to agree that the headlights give so much of its appearance.

I like the yellow painted color of Megane 250. The headlights and exterior also sporty type mode. Wish to have this in my sports car collection.

After a successful production of Renault Megane, they come up with this one. I think. Few changes have been made here. For me, I would prefer the standard version of this one.

This one is probably one of the best takes on the Megane that I have seen. I like how they were able to make this car look much sportier than the standard version.

The fact it would consider an impressive hybrid is the distinct appealing appearances, That’s new to your taste it impress your toes to release the pedal.

Well, I don’t find the engine performance of the Renault impressive. I would say that there are a lot of options in the market that is more powerful compare to this one.
