Renault Megane RS

The Renault Megane RS is the upgraded version of Renault hatchback. It is a high-performance vehicle which gets even hotter with the launch of Trophy.

The Renault Megane RS Trophy will only have 500 units for the meantime. It is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged 4cyl making 265hp and 265 ft-lbs of torque, which is a bit higher than the previous Megane RS.

The exra horsepower gained by this model is the result of turning up the turbo boost to 36psi together with the limited-slip differential and suspension setup from Megane RS Cup Edition. In addition to the turbo boost adjustment, the wheels were changed to a bigger 19” and grippier Birdgestone RE050A tires.

The Renault Megane RS Trophy is expected to set a 0-60 time under 60 seconds and a top speed up to 160mph.

If we’re going to compare the Trophy from other Megane, you will notice the black roof panel, special Trophy badging, changes in rear fascia like the more aggressive lip spoiler, and the wheels red accent around the outer circumference of the rim.

Another major changes is the Trophy is the set of Recaro seats which records various performance statistics and mechanical parameters of the car like the turbo boost, oil temperature, during track session.
