Renault has unveiled the new limited edition Megane Renaultsport 275 Trophy

The tradition of exclusive, performance-oriented Renaultsport models continues with the unveiling of a new limited edition Megane hot hatch - the Megane Renaultsport 275 Trophy. The chassis comes with limited slip differential as standard, while Renaultsport's engineers have managed to extract 10bhp more from its powerplant.

The 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine now boasts 275bhp and a peak torque of 360Nm - available across 3,000rpm to 5,000rpm. Despite the power increase, fuel consumption and emissions have been carefully contained to stand at 16.0km/L and 174g/km of COemissions respectively.

The 275 Trophy is standard fitted with a light Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, which features a specific, more raucous bark that is sure to appeal to those who appreciate sporty engine notes.

The limited edition car can also be specified with optional adjustable Ohlins dampers with steel springs, which allows drivers to adjust their damper settings without a fuss. Also available as an option are Michel Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres - a product of joint collaboration between Michelin and Renaultsport - specifically for the new limited edition front-wheel drive car.

Inside, the drivers are settled on leather and Alcantara adorned Recaro bucket seats with red stitching. The same hue of stitching has been carried over to the rear bench seat, while the headrests feature Renaultsport badging.

Other interior highlights include red stitching for the Alcantara steering wheel trim and handbrake gaiter, as well as an alloy gear lever knob.

The new halo model of the Megane nameplate is set to make its U.K. debut at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed in June, before it goes on sale in 20 countries worldwide.

Whoa, I see so much power going to the front wheels....the only thing I can think of is torque steer.

 

Seems like performance cars of late dun have to be RWD or 4WD. A FWD with an LSD can seems to handle more & more power.

When it comes to front-driving hot hatch excellence, RenaultSport rock. I've still got very fond memories of my old Clio Sport, which was just an awesome little hatch, a real giant-killer in its day.
