Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy Ready to Tear Up the Streets
|   Thursday, June 19, 2014
Renault is ready to come up with the latest addition to their hot selling Mégane lineup. This vehicle sits between their range topper Trophy R and the current generation 265. It is also a part of the long list of Limited Edition Mégane that Renault has used in the past, such as Red Bull Racing's RB8 and RB7, etc. However, this vehicle will be mass manufactured, unlike previous Limited Edition models and Renault hopes to sell, close to 100 units of this vehicle alone, in the United Kingdom.


The interior has been lifted off a regular 265, which includes a five seated interior arrangement, along with decent boot capacity. Minor exterior highlights, along with numbered sill plate, Alcantara wheel and contrasting stitches have been installed, while Limited Slip Differential is added, along with an essential Cup chassis. Updated Akrapovic exhaust from the Trophy R has been installed, providing an additional 10 BHP.

Standard 18 inch rims with Bridgestone tires and high end 19 inch rims with Michelin tires are currently available. Optional Ohlin suspension can set customers back by an additional £2000, which even topples the base model Trophy R. Renaultsport is expected to carry on with a few minor technical tweaks, which will enhance ride dynamics and control, to a large extent.

We were lucky enough to be able to take the Mégane RS 275 Trophy on track and this vehicle handled like a dream. Renault managed to keep the Mégane's reputation as a hot hatch intact, with their latest addition. Despite the major changes that have been made to its general power train, this vehicle displaces a healthy 271 BHP, from its electric engine.

Additional torque is felt at all RPM ranges, which rushes a chill down the spine, every time you put your pedal to the metal! Immaculate gear ratio selection means lesser down shifts, which is a blessing, while driving within city perimeters. The engine note is high and sporty, which can be enjoyed around a track. Roll up the windows however and you cut yourself out from the world. Level of refinement and comfort, is really high, which helps you forget most of life's problems, for a while.

Handling and steering on the RS 275 Trophy is high, which has a lot to do with its superior suspension and stiff chassis! This vehicle provides the right amount of sportiness that any track prepped vehicle needs. The best part about this deal is that, the RS 275 Trophy is a completely street legal vehicle, which you can actually use, to get groceries, when not burning out tires at the local speedway!

Considering the amount of vehicle, Renault is offering at this price, we would say that this is a killer deal! We are yet to ascertain how this vehicle feels on bumpy country roads, but that is an adventure for another day. We experts are to be believed, the Mégane RS 275 Trophy, can handle a little rough terrain too! Stay tuned for more, as we plan out our next adventure, this time into the heart of wilderness.
