Something new is in town, and it was snapped by reader David Foo in PJ recently. These pics show two units of the Renault Megane RS turning into what looks like TC Euro Cars’ PJ headquarters. Plenty to spot here, but we should focus on the black car.

The yellow contrasting paint on the rear diffuser and wing mirrors, plus a Red Bull Racing sticker on the lower half of the front door marks it out as the limited edition Renault Megane RS Red Bull Racing RB7. Besides those already pointed out, the RB7 also gets a chequered-flag pattern decal on the roof and a unique gear knob. Since it’s a limited edition, you’ll get a numbered plaque too.

The F1-themed RB7 is based on the latest Megane RS 265 Cup, which as its name denotes, makes 265 PS, 15 horses more than the RS 250. At 360 Nm, max torque is also 20 Nm up on the RS 250. However, the extra 15 ponies only come out to play when one selects Sport mode, which deactivates the new Stop&Start system.

Speaking of the regular Megane RS 265 Cup, we could be already looking at it. The wheels on the yellow car in the pics are different from what’s on the RS 250. Launch is imminent.
