PARIS — The Renault Megane Renaultsport Red Bull Racing RB8 takes its inspiration from the race team's colors and celebrates Renault and Red Bull Racing's third Formula 1 Constructors' world title.

Other details include 19-inch black "Steev" wheels with platinum rims, stiffer springs, dampers, antiroll bar and limited-slip differential.

"Megane Renaultsport Red Bull Racing RB8 is shod as standard with the same Bridgestone tires that helped Megane Renaultsport 265 Trophy establish a new lap record for the Nurburgring," said Renault in a statement.

The special model is equipped with a 265-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

The car — as with all Renaults — will not be sold in the U.S. Pricing has not been announced.

Edmunds says: A compelling special model from Renault, but one that U.S. race fans must admire from afar.
