● The hottest hatch made its public debut at the Monaco GP at the end of May
● Further show dates start with appearance at the French Grand Prix, June 21-23
● Demand set to be super-high when it goes on limited sale at the end of the year
Ever since its record-breaking appearance at the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife in April, when it smashed the track record in the front-wheel drive production car category, Renault Sport’s hottest ever hatch, the Mégane R.S. Trophy-R has set the motoring world alight.
And when it made its public debut at Formula 1’s Monaco Grand Prix over the weekend of May 24-26, excitement levels went through the roof – there were gasps from the crowd as it motored its way at high speed around the Principality’s iconic street circuit.
Built to break records, the Mégane R.S. Trophy-R marries Renault’s motorsports passion, technology and fun into a super-exciting driving package. Set to go on limited-edition sale later this year, it features the same highly tuned 1.8-litre turbo engine as the Mégane R.S. 300 Trophy but weighs in at 130kg lighter than its stablemate.
Understandably, demand for the new range-topper is expected to be high when it goes on sale, with R.S. enthusiasts clamouring to snap up the few production cars available for the general public to buy.
Such high demand means that not everyone can own a piece of the action – but there is the chance to lay eyes on Renault Sport’s latest record breaker when it goes on a mini tour of select venues over the summer and Autumn.
To be one of the lucky few to see the Mégane R.S. Trophy-R in all its glory before it goes on sale, here are the key dates to add to your diary. Make sure to circle them in now to avoid disappointment...
