Renault has revealed a Monaco GP edition of the Laguna Coupe, named after the famous Formula 1 race which takes place on the streets of Monaco every year.
Most noticeably, the car gets a special paint scheme, which consists of a pearl white body and black roof, door mirrors, and 18-inch alloys. You also get the obligatory Monaco GP badge package, both on the exterior and interior (Where the Monaco GP badge is embroidered on the seatbacks in gray). Speaking of the interior, it gets a charcoal leather finish and a GT steering wheel.
On the technical side of things, the Monaco GP comes with a range of engines, consisting of three diesels and just one gasoline engine. The diesels on offer will be the dCi 150 (A 2.0L engine with 150 hp), the dCi 180 (2.0L, 180 hp) and a 3.0L V6 dCi with 235 hp and about 331 lb-ft of torque. The only gasoline engine available is a 3.5L V6 with 240 hp and roughly 243 lb-ft of torque. Because of this, I believe the V6 dCi is the best option to go with. The horsepower difference is just 5 hp, it has a lot more torque, and it’ll be more efficient.
The Monaco GP will also come with 4Control, an all-wheel steering system developed by Renault Sport Technologies. This allows for great handling and a smaller turning circumference.
If you’re interested, pricing starts at €38,000, and orders will be accepted starting in May, while dealerships will begin receiving the cars in June.
