If someone wants to own the fastest front-wheel-drive car at Nürburgring, the Renault Mégane RS 275 Trophy-R, then he will need to pay rather much for it.
As announced by Renault, the Mégane RS 275 Trophy-R will come in an extremely limited production of 250 units will be sold in 15 countries and in France its price will start from €45,000 euros.
It is based on the recently presented Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy but thanks to techniques to reduce weight, it weighs 100 kilos less.
It is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo engine producing 275 hp with 360 Nm of torque, with the Cup Chassis, differential lock, Akrapovic exhaust system, Ohlins adjustable suspension and the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, specially adapted for the car. It has no rear seats and at the front it has two monocoque Recaro Pôle Position seats from polycarbonate, which offer weight savings of 42 kilos. There are red six-point safety belts, to protect passengers. Also it has a new smaller lithium-ion battery which reduces the weight by 16 kilos. The R.S. 275 Trophy-R is also equipped with aluminum discs measuring 350 × 28 mm of Brembo (-3 kg) to brake safely.
The Megane R.S. 275 Trophy-R is painted in white and black color, with red accents. The 19 inch wheels are also painted in the same red color with Renault to place alongside the steering wheel a hand brake clad in Alcantara and a leather gear knob.
