New Mégane R.S. Trophy-R was built to break records, combining Renault's passion for motorsport, technology and fun into one exciting driving package. True to its genes, New Mégane R.S. Trophy-R – driven by Laurent Hurgon – set a new Nürburgring Nordschleife record of 7’40’’100 for the lap of 20.600 km (7’45’’389 for the full oﬃcial lap of 20.832 km, in line with new 2019 Nürburgring rules). Challenges always remain a part of the R.S. Spirit that keeps driving us forward.
Renault Sport spirit
Keeping it in the family
The Mégane has a proud history on the “Green Hell” of the Nürburgring’s North Loop, the Nordschleife. In 2008, the Mégane II R.S. R26.R driven by Vincent Bayle broke the lap record in a time of 8:17. Three years later, the Mégane III R.S. 265 Trophy with Laurent Hurgon at the wheel took only 8:07.97 to cover the 20.600km distance. Hurgon broke his own record in 2014 to record a time of 7:54.36 in the Mégane III 275 R.S. Trophy-R, the first time a FWD vehicle had beaten the eight-minute barrier.
