Renault Megane RS Trophy

Renault has some of the best handling hatchbacks in the world, and besides the RS versions – the latest Renault Megane RS Trophy could be an outstanding contender for the throne.

With cars like the new Astra OPC, the Audi RS3, Focus RS and the AMG A25 leading the segment – it’s no surprise Renault wants some of that hall-of-fame status. They also know the standard Megane RS won’t do with the German hyper hot-hatches surpassing the 365-hp mark.

As history dictates, the French hatchback almost always results in several RenaultSport-developed variants. Similar to the old Megane, most of these versions are expected within the coming years. Now, since the standard Megane RS isn’t even out yet – chances are we have no clue how the trophy version would look like.

Fret not though; an artist by the name of “Monholo Oumar” gave us a few renderings of the Renault Megane RS Trophy to enjoy. And if you knew Renault, you’d know that these renderings aren’t too far off from how the real thing will look like.

The body seems to take on the familiar RenaultSport design methodology with flared arches, triplet led daytime running lights integrated in the lower front fascia, blacked out grille and 20-inch black rims. Although the renderings are insanely good, they are still too reserved in terms of styling – we expect the actual Trophy to be much more aggressive than this – especially in the rear.

What’s under the hood? Since the standard Megane RS is going to receive the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 300-hp and a 6-speed manual transmission. Expect the Renault Megane RS Trophy to pop around 360-hp with aggressive tires, AWD and lots of weight shedding.
