The Mégane R.S. Trophy-R owes its performance to its pure character. Developed as a racing car, the dedicated team focussed on three aspects: weight reduction, improved aerodynamics and chassis development.
Following the records set at the Nürburgring and Spa-Francorchamps, Laurent Hurgon, driving the Trophy-R, has set an official record time (2’25’’454) for a performance car on the 5.8-kilometre-long Suzuka circuit, which has 18 curves.
The Mégane R.S. has been setting and breaking records for more than ten years. In 2008, it set the very first record in the front-wheel-drive performance car category on the Nürburgring circuit, completing the lap in 8’17’. Laurent Hurgon has previously broken records multiple times on both the Nürburgring and Spa-Francorchamps circuits driving different generations of the Mégane R.S. and beating the record at the Suzuka circuit is another great achievement, for both him and the Trophy-R.
The Mégane Trophy-R is available to order now, please consult your local dealer to find out more. Alternatively, to find out about the various options available, visit www.renault.co.uk
