Aiming to lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife in under 8 minutes, Renault has unveiled a special limited-edition Megane R.S.

Thanks to its more powerful engine, new, competition-derived technical features and assertive stance, Renault Sport's Megane R.S. 275 Trophy is a limited-edition car that is sure to appeal to fans of exclusive sporty cars.

Megane R.S. 275 Trophy is the latest in a long line of limited-editions of the model which began with the Trophy version in 2011 and continued with the Red Bull Racing RB7 (2012) and Red Bull Racing RB8 (2013) versions.

The Megane R.S. 275 Trophy will be marketed in around 20 countries on five continents, including Australia, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, Germany and South Africa.

Order books will open on June 3 in France where the tax-paid price will be 38,000 EUR.

Nurburgring Nordschleife Record Times for FWD Cars

The Nurburgring Nordschleife lap record for FWD cars was set and the gauntlet thrown down by Renault in 2008 with the Megane R26.R, which clocked a lap time of 8:16.90, and then again with the newer Megane RS Trophy at 8:07.97. Earlier this year, Seat improved the time to 7:58.44 with the 280-horsepower Leon Cupra. Honda has also publicly announced it will try to set the record straight after its new Type R comes out, with Opel also likely to put their 2 cents in with the new Astra Extreme.

Megane R.S. 275 Trophy Features Exclusive Styling, Inside and Out

Outside, the new livery includes Trophy branding on the Platine Grey F1-type front blade, while the personalized body sides feature Trophy decals. Platine Grey has also been selected for the chequered flag graphic at the bottom of the doors. Meanwhile, numbered door sill guards are further evidence of the limited-edition car's exclusivity.

Like the new signature engine note, the carbon exhaust tail pipe, too, is the work of Akrapovic.

Optional 19-inch black Speedline Turini wheels derived from those used by competition versions of Megane can also be ordered.

Inside, Megane R.S. 275 Trophy comes with leather and Alcantara Recaro bucket seats with visible red stitching. Red stitching has been carried over to the rear bench seat, while the head rests feature Renault Sport badging.

Other interior highlights include visible red stitching for the Alcantara steering wheel trim and hand brake bellow, as well as a Zamac gear lever knob.
