The Renault Megane R.S. 275 Cup Premium edition is one of the quickest and most exciting front-wheel drive hot hatches money can buy, known for its supreme chassis.
In a 2016 review, Performance Drive stated “It will hold on far longer on twisty roads than other hot hatches, pulling grip from who knows where. There is virtually no body roll at all, and a huge amount of chassis grip. This is a serious setup”.
Under the bonnet sits a 2.0-litre turbo- four-cylinder generating a mighty 201kW of power and 360Nm of torque.
This is channelled through a six-speed manual transmission into a limited-slip-diff-equipped front-wheel drive system tuned especially for the Cup Premium model and not featured on the standard R.S. 265. There is no automatic option here and its tasty peak power comes in at just 5,500rpm, which is very good news around town.
This little fire-breather produces a sweet and sometimes crackling note thanks to a titanium Akrapovic bi-modal exhaust and the Cup Premium comes with dedicated sports suspension, separate to even the setup on the R.S. 265, with MacPherson struts and lightweight aluminium wishbones up front and a taut torsion beam rear end.
The simply superb car offered here is a one-owner 2015 Renault 275 Cup Premium travelled just 18,000 kilometres and ordered in the factory’s hero colour of Liquid Yellow over Black gloss alloys and Black Recaro trim.

Offered with its complete book pack, both keys and a collection of magazines featuring the 275 Cup Premium, all tell-tale signs we look for in a cherished car are present and accounted for in this Megan.
Ready to drive off the showroom floor, this 275 Cup Premium edition with only 18,000 kilometres is the one to own.
