Renault Mégane RS250/Cup
WOW FACTOR: It boasts performance that would embarrass a sports car
The French are a quirky bunch, so much so that they know how to turnmundane hatchbacks into tar-melting, adrenaline-pumping machines better than almost anyone. The RS250 Mégane is a typical example; call it the double espresso of hot hatches. Combine the stonking 184kW engine with the lightened, specially tuned Cup Chassis and you have levels of performance akin to sports cars of the not-too-distant past. Ooh, and those stunning leather-clad Recaro bucket seats…. This one will have your other half begging you for the keys.
PRICE: From R399 900
