Spain’s Madrid Police department has recently acquired two units of the Renault Megane RS which will be used to fight crime in the city.
The economic crisis has affected Spain quite badly over the past few years but that isn’t stopping its police department from buying new cars. 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.
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. In the Trophy, the unit is providing an extra 15 HP, allowing the hot hatch to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.0 seconds and to reach a top speed of 254 km/h (157 mph). There is a new 275 Trophy version of the Megane RS available, packing 275 HP (202 kW).
