2020 Megane R.S. 300 Trophy

Since introducing the first Mégane RS Trophy, Renault has become a serious contender in the hot hatch segment. They’ve managed to build a large customer base of enthusiasts who now expect only the best in chassis design, handling and engine technology. The latest Renault Mégane RS 300 Trophy delivers on that promise as the most powerful production Mégane ever.

Launching this exclusive Renault Mégane RS 300 Trophy in South Africa is in celebration of pure speed and performance, marking more than 40 years of Renault Sport producing some of the most exciting cars in the modern era.

Megane R.S. 300 Trophy Engine Specs

 

Renault Megane RS 300 Trophy Engine Specs

Considering the extensive research and development available to Renault in Formula 1, they have managed the impossible by extracting a whopping 221 kW from a mere 1.8-litre, 4-cylinder engine. Hence the RS 300 name as 221 kW translates into 300 hp.

This power comes from the twin-scroll, ceramic ball-bearing turbocharger producing the 221 kW at 6 000 RPM with either 400 Nm or 420 Nm of torque from 2 400 to 4 500 RPM. The impressive petrol engine is direct-injection turbocharged mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed dual-clutch EDC gearbox where the latter gets 420 Nm with the manual option delivering 400 Nm of torque.

But don’t simply take our word for it, take a look at these mind blowing Renault Megane R.S. Engine Specs below:

Engine Type Max Power Rating Peak Torque
1.8 Litre 16-valve Turbo 221 Kw 420 Nm

Power is transferred to the front wheels through a mechanical, 2-way Torsen limited-slip differential which means exceptional handling and power distribution when entering and exiting corners. According to French automaker, the Renault RS 300 Trophy can do 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.7-second in either manual or EDC format.

Renault Megane R.S. 300 Trophy Interior And Exterior Styling

Renault Mégane RS 300 Trophy gets its own bespoke, tri-tone 19-inch alloy wheels and dedicated Trophy branding to set it apart from other RS models. The front and rear diffusers are still F1-inspired with a contrasting silver finish.

The interior now has a Zamac aluminium gear lever, an Alcantara trimmed steering wheel and Recaro sports bucket seats with matching Alcantara trim and contrast stitching. Adding to the sportiness of the exclusive Renault Mégane RS 300 Trophy, the seats are 20 mm lower than other RS models which allow for a lower centre of gravity.

In terms of the interior features and technology, Renault Mégane RS 300 Trophy has an 8.7-inch, portrait-orientated R-Link infotainment system with inputs for USB, Bluetooth, AUX and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also includes RS Monitor V2 that displays the vehicle settings and performance statistics.

It comes with several drive modes which mean drivers can change control and behaviour parameters to suit their driving situation. Each mode has unique settings for throttle response, steering weight, suspension stiffness and exhaust tone. EDC models will also feature launch control and multi-gear downshifts.
