for every car model, there is almost always a top-of-the-range variant to satisfy the discerning enthusiasts and the Megane is no different. since 2011, Renault has been rolling out high-performing Megane and the Renault Megane R.S. 275 Trophy is this year’s catch if you are looking for a serious hot hatch with the look to match. the 2.0-liter turbo-four petrol unit is tuned to deliver 275 horses, ten more over the ‘lesser’ R.S., while torque peaks out at the same 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) and available from 3,000 through to 5,000 rpm. power aside, it is loaded with a slew of sport equipment that would make any hot hatch (btw, we don’t think its a coupe by any count. sorry Renault) lover weep.
the long list of prestigious equipment and features include Akrapovič titanium exhaust system with carbon exhaust tail pipe, upgraded Cup chassis, limited-slip differential, improved and downright drool-worthy aero kit, optional Ohlins adjustable dampers, optional Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, optional competition-derived 19-inch black Speedline Turini wheels, a new livery with Trophy branding, numbered door sill guards, leather and Alcantara Recaro bucket seats with red stitching, rear bench seat (also with red stitching), carbon fiber elements, Renault Sport badging on head rests, and red stitching on Alcantara steering wheel trim, hand brake bellow and Zamac gear lever boot.
the Renault Megane R.S. 275 Trophy will be available in 20 countries, across five continents, including Australia, U.K., Malaysia, Germany and South Africa. order will be commenced on June 3, 2014 on its home turf, France where it will expect to cost €38,000, tax inclusive.
