The new Renault Megane Trophy, is based on the megane coupe platform. Also the body design is inspired from the lines of New Mégane Coupe. According to French automaker, the new engine from Renault-Nissan Alliance’s V6 3.5 24V now delivers 360hp.
New Mégane Trophy also carries over the ground effect aerodynamics of the
– The front splitter channels airflow to the extractors,
– Rear downforce is generated by the diffuser and wing.
Refinements to the set-up have produced a 20% improvement in downforce and a 15% reduction in
drag which, together, represent a gain of almost 40% in terms of the new car’s aerodynamic
performance over the previous generation machine.
Inside we find a FIA-homologated sports-prototype tubular chassis, a semi-automatic gearbox with steering wheel-mounted paddle shift. Also, the beast comes a double wishbone suspension with adjustable dampers, and 18-inch wheels with Michelin tyres.

to adapt the chassis to the new bodywork will be carried out by the Alpine factory in Dieppe.
