Renault unveiled the limited-edition Megane R.S. 275 Trophy-R, which currently holds the record for front-wheel drive cars at the Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit. The Megane R.S. 275 Trophy-R is a two-seater derivative of the recently-introduced Megane R.S. 275 Trophy.

The enhanced track performance of this exclusive new Renault Sport limited-edition also comes courtesy of a weight saving of about 220 lbs (100 kg).

Only 250 Megane R.S. Trophy-R models will be built by Renault for customers in 15 countries.

Ultra-Sporty Design Details

On the outside, the Megane R.S. 275 Trophy-R sports a new two-tone color scheme, with an Etoile Black roof mated with a Pearlescent White finish (optional). The Trophy-R branded F1-type front blade, chequered flag graphic at the bottom of the front doors and graphics on the side of the car are all picked out in Vif Red. Finished off with 19-inch black or red Speedline wheel rims, this is a vehicle that sets itself apart as much on the circuit as on the open road.

The exclusivity of Megane R.S. 275 Trophy-R similarly stands out in details like its Alcantara-trimmed steering wheel and handbrake bellows, leather gearshift knob and red seatbelts which match the visible stitching of the seats and steering wheel.

Megane R.S. 275 Trophy-R: Track-Ready

The Megane R.S. 275 Trophy-R comes as standard with a Cup chassis (complete with limited-slip differential), a 2.0-liter petrol R.S. engine boosted to 275 hp, a titanium Akrapovic exhaust system, 'Ohlins Road&Track' one-way adjustable dampers with composite springs and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires that are specifically-adapted to the car.

Whilst the Megane R.S. 275 Trophy-R manages without rear seats, the Recaro Pole Position polycarbonate monocoque seats can be found in the front, which yield a weight saving of 92 lbs (42 kilograms). These are fitted with a three-point seat belt, but a six-point harness with aviation-style buckle is available as an accessory. A retention beam and safety nets protect passengers from moving luggage.

For track-day fans eager to gain several vital seconds over the course of a lap, the use of a lithium-ion battery trims the overall weight by another 35 lbs (16 kilograms).

To ensure high-performance braking whilst at the same time contributing to the weight-shedding effort, Megane R.S. 275 Trophy-R benefits from a special braking kit. Its 350/28-diameter steel and aluminum discs bring the car's weight down and are ideally adapted to intensive circuit use.
