Even though car model mid-life facelifts almost always involve the same miserable raft of headlight tweaks, LED additions, bumper re-profiles and interior trim additions, very occasionally they involve something exciting.

That's what's happened with the Renaultsport Mégane. Yep, as the new name alludes, the hottest Mégane now has 265 metric horsepower, which in British is 261bhp. That's up from 247bhp in the original car, but the same power as the limited edition recent Trophy version.
