Body & Paintwork

Arguably one of the most quirky designs of modern times….. The ‘Megane 2’ certainly turned heads with the design of the rear end, and the fantastic ‘shaking that ass’ tv advert really pushed the envelope.

Having aged very well, & being one of the best front wheel drive drivers cars of recent times, these cars are fast becoming modern classics and collectors items.

This example still looks fantastic, with the optional sticker pack, & the black paintwork has a great gloss across the entire car, as you would expect from such a low mileage vehicle.

Other than a few very minor marks which you would relate to a car of this age the car presents absolutely beautifully, having recently been detailed & ceramic coated.

All original decals & badges are still in place, which are all still nice & bright without the usual fading.
Again, the wheels are the correct original wheels, even the red Brembo brake calipers are in great order.

No modifications have been carried out, other than a change of tyres, so this example presents exactly as Renault intended.

Interior & Trim

As you would expect, the interior is in superb condition throughout.

The original steering wheel and gear knob are in great order with very minimal wear, as are the beautiful Alacantara Recaro Trendline seats.
The carpets are without any damage, and the floor mats are in great condition.

No modifications have been carried out, so no nasty screw holes from extra gauges, the dashboard & all trims are all superb and as new.
Everything works just as it should do, and is exactly as Renault intended.

Ready to be enjoyed or added to a collection.

Engine

The engine runs perfectly as you would expect, & has had a cambelt service carried out only last year, and then in interim service in June of this year.
You can rest assured this example is ready to be enjoyed.

A cold start confirms that this is a nice quiet engine, with no unwanted noises either when cold or hot.

Likewise, on the road the car performs just as it should do, with a smooth power delivery throughout the rev range.
No smoking at all, either on start up, on boost or on overrun.
The car really is brilliant to drive.

The engine bay itself presents very well indeed, exactly as you would expect from a low mileage and cared for example.

Running Gear

All running gear is in very good order and this car is an absolute pleasure to drive.

All wheels are good unmarked.
When on the road, the braking performance is superb and straight, all discs and pads are in good order – & of course the original red Brembo brake calipers are without any of the usual lacquer peel or ‘pinking’.

The gearbox is a pleasure to operate, & even in todays world, this is an impressive car to drive with great driver feel and feedback.
