I know the answer to this one unfortunatly.

Both the Numbus and Cap red were featured on special edition cars. The descision was taken NOT to launch these colours as if they were made available it would make the special editions.......well........not special thus the descision.

Capsicum Red has been a Standard colour on Megane's since the 1st Megane was launched in 1996.

Renault always go it!!

They did something similar with the alloys on the 172. It came with 16" five spoke wheels but the style was exclusive to the RS Clio then as soon as the 04 plate Clios came out they had exactly the same style wheel but in 15"!!!!!

Why can't Renault just leave things and stop fannying about. :lol:

how many phase 1 Capsicum red ones were sold do we know? the phase two orders started only a month or two after the cup came out so Capsicum red phase ones could be amonst the rarest cars out there, I'm sure I saw 50 as the number sold that was a little while ago

Renault are notorious for having a limited edition and then making it standard. They did it with the Williams Clio. They were going to have a limited edition Williams Clio and then they had a Williams Clio 2 and even a 3 i think.

It's annoying. Especially when you have bought a limited edition car. I hope Nimbus doesn't become available to the general public or am i just being selfish! :lol:
