A Mégane R.S. Trophy is recognisable at a glance thanks to its black roof, branded decals, rear lip spoiler, and 19-inch Gloss Black STEEV wheels with red piping. The LED daytime running lights also add to the striking and distinctive look. Owners also appreciated the plaque displaying its number in the limited-edition run.
Unleash the power
With maximum power of 265hp, and a peak torque of 360Nm across a particularly broad rev-band (3,000 to 5,000rpm), the Mégane R.S.’s 2.0-litre turbocharged engine was tuned to perfection. A power-to-weight ratio of 5.09kg/hp and power of 132.5hp/litre delivers 0-100km/h in just 6 seconds and a top speed of 254km/h, statistics that don’t describe the fun also on tap.
Putting you in control
The innovative R.S. Monitor onboard data-logging system records performance and displays a range of mechanical parameters in real-time. On the road, and especially on the track, it gives drivers reassuring feedback of every aspect of the car’s performance.
The Mégane R.S. Trophy was notable for its road-holding on dry roads, especially through tighter turns, as well as in the wet. Adding to the Cup Chassis, ESP and standard LSD, the Formula 1-inspired design of the Bridgestone Potenza tyres offered outstanding grip, stability and acoustic comfort, whatever the conditions.
Colour me jealous
The Mégane R.S. Trophy marked the introduction of a new Sirius Yellow finish, a metallic paint immediately recognisable to Renault Sport fans for its association with the company’s racing heritage. Other alternatives are Glacier White, Etoilé Black and Cassiopée Grey.
