Sports car lovers can look forward to even greater performance and a sportier design, as New Renault MÉGANE R.S. TROPHY boosts the Renault Sport line-up by extending the family of Trophy versions deployed since the first generation of Mégane R.S.
New MÉGANE R.S. TROPHY comes with a brand-new version of the 1.8-litre turbo engine, delivering increased power output of 300hp and torque of 420Nm1, largely thanks to the use of pioneering technologies, especially for the turbocharger and exhaust system. This engine can be combined with a manual or EDC dual-clutch gearbox.
Featuring Renault Sport's latest innovations in chassis and suspension systems, including the 4CONTROL four-wheel steering system and four hydraulic bump stop shock absorbers, New MÉGANE R.S. TROPHY also comes as standard with the Cup chassis, which boasts stiffer suspension and a Torsen® mechanical limited slip differential. This version is equally enhanced by bi-material front brake discs, specific 19-inch wheels and very high performance Bridgestone tyres, which can be paired with new, exclusive lighter wheels.
And for the best possible feeling in the car, New MÉGANE R.S. TROPHY can be fitted with a new generation of Recaro front seats, covered with Alcantara® upholstery.
Meeting the needs of enthusiasts looking for exclusivity, the TROPHY version remains eminently suited to everyday use, offering all the features of Mégane R.S., particularly:
"I have been involved in the Mégane R.S. development process since last year and I'm very pleased to see an even sportier version added to the family! Each of the new features on New Renault MÉGANE R.S. TROPHY offers greater sports performance and feel. It's obviously positive to have more power and better grip through the tyres and to benefit from improved braking endurance. I also enjoyed the feeling offered by the new seats: the support they provide for sports driving is excellent." Nico Hülkenberg, Renault Sport Formula One Team driver and Renault Sport ambassador
