Monaco in brief
The limited edition Mégane Coupé-Cabriolet Monaco GP symbolises Renault’s historic association with 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.

It turns out that the pimp-wagon scene was just resting, as VIP vans seemed to dominate the 2007 show. So what makes a minivan a "style wagon"? Basically, a style wagon is a VIP-styled minivan. As is the case with VIP sedans, most style wagons have a simple white or black paint scheme (though silver is also acceptable), tasteful aero kits, large chrome wheels and no fender gap. Within the style wagon scene, the main vans of choice seem to be the Honda Odyssey, Nissan Elgrand and the Toyota Estima. Though Americans would look at any of these rides as "just a minivan", the massive size of these vans allows Japanese tuners to let their minds run wild. Though t
