Monaco in brief
The limited edition Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet Monaco GP symbolises Renault's historic association wîth the Automobile Club de Monaco.
Ever since François Repusseau's win on the Monte Carlo Rally in 1925 driving a Renault 40CV, the two partners have been united by common values and the same passion for motorsport.
A long-standing highlight of the Formula 1 season, the Monaco Grand Prix has been won on numerous occasions by Renault-powered cars (and most recently in 2011 by Sebastian Vettel). To help groom the F1 champions of tomorrow, Renault Sport also organises a Formula Renault 3.5 Series race through the streets of the Principality.Source - Renault
