With maximum power of 265hp (up 15hp), peak torque of 360Nm (20Nm) uncommitted across a peculiarly wide rev-band (3,000 to 5,000 rev), a power-to-weight ratio of 5.09 kilogram H.P. and specific power of 132.5 H.P. l, the Renault Megane RS Trophy sports an exceptional performance package. Maximum turbo pressure level has been uprated to 2.5 bar (up 0.2 bar), while the air intake design has been revised to take the higher air pressure and higher flowing temperatures into account.
Performance has been enhanced in the process, and the result is a 0-to-100kph time of just 6.0 s (down 0.1 s), a top speed of 254kph (up 4kph) and the 1,000 kilometer standing start in 25.4 s (down 0.3 s). A new tire fitment with the design of the Formula 1-inspired Bridgestone Potenza RE050As asymmetrical, directional step practice and the form of its trample blocks furnish outstanding grip, stability and acoustical comfort, whatever the conditions. Last but not least, Renault Megane RS Trophy fuel-efficiency has been cautiously optimized to return combined-cycle fuel consumption of precisely 8.2 ls 100km.
Inside Renault Megane RS Trophy, the Recaro bucket seats add to the cabins signally sporty feel, as does the central display which pictures the informations provided by the R.S. Monitor. This groundbreaking onboard data-logging system records performance and displays a reach of mechanical parameters in real time.
The Renault Megane RS 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.
