Do you like your Renault vehicles as sleek and powerful as possible? If so, you are in for a huge treat later this year. The brand-new Megane RS Trophy is making its way to our sunny shores in the latter half of 2018 and this sleek new rendition of the much-loved hatchback is set to blow a whole host of performance-driven vehicles right out of the water with the F1-inspired goods under its hood.
The newest hot hatch to join our stable doesn’t have a Formula 1 look to it by accident either – it was developed with the help of the F1 team, and the consensus is that this is the most singularly potent vehicle that has ever left our assembly line. Looking for a few figures to whet your appetite? Here goes: The 1.8-litre turbocharged engine gifts the driver with 220 kW of power and a radical top speed of 260 km/h, with a 4Control four-wheel steering system that takes care of stability and agility when you open up the throttle.
The groundbreaking collaboration between the Renault Sport Cars and Renault Sport Racing engineering teams has also resulted in an optional EDC gearbox, and two types of chassis – the Sport, which is tailor-made for efficient sports driving, and the Cup, which takes the needs of track drivers into account. Best of all – if you do plan to take the RS Trophy out on the track, you will be able to film your sessions and up the ante with overlaid telemetry data if you really want to push out the boat.
Naturally, that’s not all. A vehicle that packs a punch like this also has to look the part, and the look and feel of the RS Trophy does not disappoint. The sleek S Vision lighting system pulls all the lights along the front of the vehicle together in a prominent layout with confident angles, and its stance on the road all but shouts its motorsport pedigree. No matter how you look at it, the new Renault Megane RS Trophy is a hot-looking car that will turn heads wherever you go.
