The new MEGANE R.S. TROPHY-R has set like its iconic forerunners a new record on the Nordschleife in front-wheel-drive production car category. It perpetuates Renault Sport’s passion for challenge and performance.
The Renault MEGANE R.S. TROPHY-R is equipped with the same 300 hp engine as its predecessor. Its increased speed owes to the weight reduction (up to 130 kg), the work on aerodynamics and the more radical development of its chassis for road holding.
The Renault MEGANE R.S. TROPHY-R will be launched on the market before the end of 2019, as an exclusive limited edition of a few hundred units only.
Renault Sport has built on a partnership with some of the most recognised specialists in their disciplines: Akrapovič, Brembo, Bridgestone, Öhlins and Sabelt. MEGANE R.S. TROPHY-R sets a 07’40’’100 new record on the Nordschleife 20.600 km lap, and a 07’45’’389 reference time on the official whole lap of 20.832 km.
