The Megane Trophy-R is rooted in Renaults immense history in motorsport, and perpetuates the legend of the record-breaking Megane, once more bringing to the roads the technologies and know-how Renault Sport has developed on the racetrack. For this car, Renault Sport engineers h pushed their expertise further than ever before. The outcome was validated by a new FWD record on the NOrburgring in the Megane Trophy-R Record breaking car.
The expert work has been validated by the stopwatch also: a new absolute record for a front-wheel drive production car was achieved on 5th April 2019 by the New MEGANE TROPHY-R Record version on the 20.6 km of the Nordschleife at the NOrburgring in 07:40.100.
Drastic reductions in mass. The quest to reduce weight looked at every detail, from the absence of a rear seat to the adoption of Carbon Fibre wheel rims, not forgetting the Akrapovic titanium exhaust line. Verdict on the scales: -130 kg lighter than the Megane Trophy without options.
Completely redesigned suspension, for a more radical result. Front axle with increased negative camber, lighter rear H axle, specific adjustable Ohlins shock-absorbers, Bridgestone Potenza S007 tyres exclusive to Renault Sport, and high performance braking with Brembo Carbon-Ceramic Discs.
Aerodynamics improved even further for better support and better circulation of flows (specific underbody fairings and Carbon Fibre rear diffuser) and additionally optimised thermal control (NACA air intake, brake scoops, etc.).
