Its powerful 1.8 turbo direct injection engine, hitting the symbolic 300 hp (220 kW) mark, sets the Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy apart. Borrowing liberally from Renault DP WORLD F1® Team experience, the turbocharger turbine is mounted on a heat-resisting ceramic ball roller bearing to bring a torque increase to 420 Nm (20 Nm) with the EDC box and 400 Nm with the manual option. It’s matched with an exhaust system optimised for performance on the track but that tames its roar on the road. The result is great acceleration and a lot more fun.
MONITOR YOUR DRIVE
Every detail of the Mégane R.S. Trophy's performance can be seen in real-time thanks to the optional R.S. Monitor that connects to some 40 sensors around the car. Displayed on the EASY-LINK touchscreen, these put everything from engine torque to steering angle or acceleration at your fingertips.
The R.S. Vision lights have a striking chequered flag design but bring more than good looks to the Mégane’s R.S. front end with its handsome F1-style blade. The nine powerful multi-faceted LEDs on each cluster light up the road far ahead, whether on dipped or full beam, but also move when cornering for added illumination and confidence. Adding to the focus on safety, they also incorporate sidelights and fog lights.
SUPPORT, COMFORT AND STYLE
The Alcantara® fabric in the Megane R.S. Trophy not only looks great but also offers great breathability and durability despite being twice as light as leather. For even more weight saving and style, opt for specially designed seats by Recaro that are also 20mm lower. Incorporating pyrotechnic pretensioners, they are also designed to fit track day helmets. With strengthened lower-back, lateral and shoulder support, they will make you truly at one with your car.
SPORTY WITH SAFETY IN MIND
The Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy matches its high-end performance with equal attention to safety. Adaptive cruise control and lane departure warnings, with sensors on either side of the front and rear bumpers, remove stresses from any drive. A head-up display keeps your attention on the road, while overspeed warning and emergency braking assistance help you out when needed. Parking sensors will also keep you aware of any hazards.
