If this summer couldn't get any hotter....say hello to the Renault Megane R.S. Trophy!

  • It's been a summer to remember and it's just about to get even hotter with the arrival of the Renault Megane RS!

    Performance car enthusiasts can look forward to even greater performance and more dynamic design, as the New Renault Megane R.S Trophy boosts the Renault Sport line up by extending the family of Trophy versions produced since the first generation of Megane R.S.

    New Megane R.S. Trophy debuts a brand new version of the 1.8 litre turbo engine, delivering increased power output of 300hp - the first time a R.S model has produced this level of power - and torque of 420Nm (with EDC gearbox).  The significant rise in power is largely thanks to the use of pioneering technologies, especially for the turbocharger and exhaust system, which again are firsts in the new Megane R.S. Trophy, including the ability to alter the engine note.  This new engine can be combined with a six-speed manual or six-speed EDC (Efficient dual-clutch) gearbox.

    Togther with the new power unit, a host of additional performance-focused features differentiate the Renault Megane R.S. Trophy from the standard Megane R.S.

    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.

    Key Features
    Expressing the best of Renault Sport technology, it gains advanced sports features, designed in cooperation with prestigious partners, including:

    • A Torsen® mechanical limited slip differential for more precise entry to corners
    • The TROPHY stripes added to the F1-style blade 
    • Unique 19-inch Jerez wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza S001 tyres
    • Increased to 300hp, the most powerful Renault Sport production car ever
    • New, Alcantara® trimmed, Recaro bucket seats fitted 20mm lower

    Exclusive styling, inside and out!

    Design: R.S. spirit right down to the very last detail.

    Featuring an expressive and even sportier design, New Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy is available in the iconic Liquid Yellow. This body colour, with its vibrant finish and unique reflective effects, highlights the sculpted yet elegant profile of the car. The full range of Mégane R.S. body colours is also available.

    Designed to deliver performance, boosted by many parts derived from the world of racing, New Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy is naturally expressive.

    Enthusiasts will instantly recognise New Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy through its distinguishing traits:

    • The TROPHY stripes added to the F1-style blade
    • The specific 19” wheels, the design of which was inspired by the Renault Sport R.S. 01 concept car, featuring diamond-cut finish with red inserts.
