Superchips Renaultsport Megane vs Ford Focus RS - Auto Express
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/videos/featuresvideos/265933/superchips_renaul tsport_mgane_video.html#ixzz1HbYQTomh Extra performance doesn't come cheap -- well not usually anyway. But for £445, Renaultsport Megane 250 owners can get their cars' computer reprogrammed by Superchips to Boost power from 247bhp to around 300bhp. So what is the effect on performance? To find out we raced a Superchips-tuned Mégane against the standard Renaultsport Mégane 250 over a standing quarter mile sprint. And then compared the two in a fourth-gear rollon from 50mph for good measure.
