Renault Megane RS: small and swift
Dotz team rider Dominic Tiroch, an experienced drifter and designer, tuner and racer, has a new toy for daily use – a Renault Megane RS.
While Dominic’s hot rod hangar at home features an enviable collection of Japanese and US car legends, he has gotten himself an every-day vehicle to ride to the closest supermarket and beyond: the classy and compact 2010 Renault RS with a cup package designed in the Vintage Club racer style.
The package of the confident, robust French car includes red brake calipers and slit brake discs, limited slip differential and a modified chassis adjustment.
The RS ex-factory body comes with a massive rear diffusor, a wheelhouse ventilation system behind the front wheels and a curved front lip.
The 265 hp in Dominic’s RS are hardly audible in regular traffic. While the inline four-cylinder is neither loud nor uncultivated, the turbocharger starts up rather massively as soon as the mode is switched to “sporty”. In just under 6.5 seconds the French make sprints to 100 km/h while the Recaro leather bucket seats keep the driver in an ideal position.
The Dotz Kendo dark provides the easy-to-spot dynamics on the wheels. In motion, the edgy rim with the double spokes and the prominent hub area looks like a ring on different blades.
The RS stands for pure, genuine sportiness and high suitability for daily use…
... which fascinates drivers from young to old age who demand their car to be dynamic.
