Renault has officially pulled the wraps off the upcoming Nurburgring king, the Megane RS 275 Trophy, which is basically a new limited edition of the Megane RS.
The Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy has been finally unveiled, following several teaser images and videos, as the model in question will soon “steal” the crown from the Seat Leon Cupra for the fastest production front-wheel drive car around the Nurburgring. The hot hatch is riding on the Cup chassis with a limited slip differential and it also has an Akrapovic exhaust system, Ohlins Road and Track dampers with steel springs, riding on Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, developed by Michelin and Renault Sport, covering the 19-inch black SPeedline Turini wheels.
The interior design of the model is getting Alcantara and leather Recaro bucket seats with visible stitching, the Renault Sport badging in the headrests, an Alcantara steering wheel trim with red stitching, Zamac gear lever knob and some other tweaks. The most important part of the Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy is found under its hood, where the 2.0 liter engine is resting. The unit is producing a total output of 275 HP, as the name of the model is suggesting, available at 5,500 rpm, and a peak torque of 360 Nm, between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm. The average fuel consumption stands at 7.5L / 100km and the CO2 emissions will stop at 174 g/km. The Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy will be sold in approximately 20 countries, on five continents, and order books will open on June 3, in France. The starting price will be set at 38,000 EUR.
