Police of Madrid, Spain has received two Renault Megane RS cars, which will help them to prevent crimes. The ex-fastest FWD (front-wheel drive) car around Nurburgring is one of the best hot hatchbacks in the world. It is not only extremely fast in straight line, but in the corners too, which makes it perfect for car chasing.
Two brand new hatchbacks, the Renault Megane RS, have been recently acquired by the Madrid police department as they will be used to fight crime throughout the city. This probably seems nothing compared to the lineup the Dubai police fleet has but this is still one of the best hot hatches on the market.
Renault Megane RS is powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol with 265HP (197 kW) and 360Nm (267 lb-ft) of torque. 0-100 km/h in under 6 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) – eletronically limited. The felons will have a real trouble escaping from these cars, because they are not only fast, but economical.
The local media is saying that both vehicles have been fitted, besides the police livery and some other equipment, with Kevlar-made front doors, which will increase protection. The Renault Megane RS is powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine which, in standard form, is producing a total output of 250 HP.
Other special features include Recaro seats, R-Link Multimedia system and TomTom Live navigation system, Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tyres, plus the latest on-board Renaultsport Monitor v2.0 featuring a more user-friendly interface, GPS-tracked lap timing, 0-62 mph times, G-force diagram, power output data and other information.
Bad guys on the run should keep in mind the Megane RS sprints to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 6 seconds before topping out at 158 mph (254 km/h) thanks to a four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine delivering 265 PS (195 kW) and 360 Nm (266 lb-ft).
