A daily dose of excitment

MÉGANE R.S. 275 TROPHY is an all-round performance car, a limited edition that combines everyday driveability with even sharper track performance. The Cup chassis fully taps the potential of the Renault Sport 2.0T engine, now boosted to 275 hp. Renault Sport has allied exceptional dynamic qualities with advanced versatility to create, what without doubt, the most accomplished sports hatch currently on the market.

“When we decided to develop an upgrade to Mégane R.S., the objective was not only to improve the technical specification. We needed a more distinctive model, a car that would be even better on the track while still being suitable for everyday driving. Reflecting our approach to motorsports, we sought to make progress in every area in order to develop innovative solutions that would make our car the market reference. It’s a car that addresses today’s concerns, with its moderate fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, and it is also a strong performer on the track, with the input from technical partners who worked in close cooperation with our staff.” said CEO of Renault Sport Technologies Patrice Ratti.

Mégane R.S. 275 Trophy features a Cup chassis specially tuned for enthusiasts of sporting performance. Equipped with a limited slip differential, the Cup chassis delivers dependable efficiency at all times, regardless of grip conditions or driving style. A set-up designed for unfailing performance. The limited slip differential is combined with an independent steering-axis layout, allowing drivers to reap the full benefits of the extra traction for a more reassuring handling. It also increases stability on braking. Further, steering potential is enhanced for earlier, and stronger, acceleration.

For Mégane R.S. 275 Trophy, Renault Sport brought together partners who set the standard in their respective fields. This limited series delivers new acoustic sensations with the support of Akrapovič. Renowned for its work with motorcycles and performance cars, the Slovenian firm designed a special titanium exhaust system. This material cuts vehicle weight by 4 kg.

The carbon tailpipe trim is also by Akrapovič. Fitted as standard, this assembly gives Mégane R.S. 275 Trophy-R a deeper, more raucous sound signature that is sure to thrill engine aficionados!
