Renault's blast from the past

Renault has turned back the clock to reveal this retro-inspired, limited-edition Megane Coupe-Cabriolet Floride.

Limited to just 50 units in Australia, the funky drop top is priced from $44,990 and pays homage to the original 1958-1968 Megane of the same name.

Available only in Ivory paint (pictured) and black pleated leather trim, it gets 17-inch wheels and the same 2.0-litre 103kW/195Nm petrol engine as the rest of the local Megane CC range.

That means a claimed 0-100km/h spring of 11.7 second and a fuel consumption figure of 8.1L-100km.
