2011 Renault Megane R.S. Trophy

Renault is planning to produce 500 units of a more powerful version of Mégane R.S.; the new Renault Megane R.S. Trophy hitting the benchmark in terms of performance and versatility.

The new Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy comes with a black roof, specific decals, new rear lip spoiler, 19-inch Gloss Black STEEV wheels with red piping and R.S. valve caps (optional or standard, depending on market), numbered plaque and LED daytime running lights.

The new Renault Megane R.S. Trophy is powered by the Mégane R.S.’s 2.0L turbocharged engine capable of making 265 hp (up 15hp) and a maximum torque of 360 Nm (up 20 Nm) at 3,000 – 5,000 rpm. These allow the Trophy to sprint from 0-100 kph in 6 seconds (down 0.1s) with a top speed of 254kph (up 4kph).

It has a power-to-weight ratio of 5.09kg/hp and specific power of 132.5hp/liter. To compensate for the uprated 2.5 bar turbo pressure, the air intake design has been revised to take the higher pressure and temperatures build up. It has a combined-cycle fuel consumption of just 8.2 liters/100km and CO2 emission of 190g /km.

In addition to the finely-tuned set-up of the Cup chassis and the standard limited slip differential, a new tire fitment contributes to the car’s exceptional road-holding on dry roads, especially through tighter turns, as well as in the wet. The design of the Formula 1-inspired Bridgestone Potenza RE050A’s asymmetric, directional tread pattern and the form of its tread blocks provide outstanding grip, stability and acoustic comfort, whatever the conditions.

Available in Sirius Yellow (new), Glacier White, Etoilé Black and Cassiopée Grey, the new Renault Megane R.S. Trophy will be marketed in France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and Slovenia. Prices in France will start from 35,500 euros.
