Nobody answered anything, were just personal opinions and nothing official.

I can, however, tell you my personal experience with a new Megane 3 RS 250, from 2010, and it goes as follows:

I bought the new car from Renault and in it's book, it was mentioned that the break-in period should be around 1000km or 650 miles. The break-in procedure was not described at all, apart of the "try to not go over 3500 rpm in this period." So basically, don't "force" the engine.

I did exactly like instructed and tried to not go over 3500 in the first 1000 kms. When I sold it last year, after 8 years and around 70.000 km, the engine was in perfect shape, without any wear, pulling absolutely same way as it did in it's first year.

So I guess, was good to do exactly like Renault said, and I will do it once more when my RS280 will arrive. I advice you to do the same.
