Gotcha! Camo-Free Renault Megane RS Trophy-R Snapped At The ‘Ring

Last month we got to see a prototype of the upcoming Renault Megane RS Trophy-R testing on the Nürburgring.

That car featured light camouflage on the doors and bonnet, as well as a red-painted wing integrated into the front bumper. As with its predecessors, it seemed to lack rear seats so it wasn’t that hard to identify it as the Megane RS Trophy-R.

Our assumptions have been confirmed by a new clip that shows the hardcore Megane RS version in all its glory — i.e. with no camouflage whatsoever. Uploaded by Talea Media, the footage shows the Megane RS Trophy-R driving on the Nürburgring as a camera car follows it, presumably shooting the official launch video. We then get to see the car in full attack mode on the Green Hell,”accompanied by a lot of tire squeal and an enticing engine sound.

The video reveals all the missing pieces of the puzzle, including a black hood scoop and “Trophy-R” lettering and graphics on the doors. Other unique features to this model are the black alloys shod with low-profile tires, an F1-inspired red wing in the front bumper, as well as the upgated brakes with perforated front discs.

The Megane RS Trophy-R models have always been about saving weight and improving performance, and the latest one is no exception. Besides ditching the rear seats and adopting a roll cage instead, the track-focused hot hatch also drops the multi-reflector LED lights in the bumper to allow the turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine to suck in more air.

Speaking of the engine, we don’t know if Renault will tweak it to produce more power. In the Megane RS Trophy, the power plant makes 300 PS (296 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque and is coupled to a six-speed manual gearbox. This allows it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.7 seconds and reach a top speed 260 km/h (161 mph). Rest assured, though, that even if the Megane RS Trophy-R doesn’t get more power, it will definitely be faster given the lower weight and the rest of the mods.
