The new 2015 Renaultsport Megane 275 Trophy is out and it is said that it is going to be the fastest hunchback ever built. The German automakers have decided to come up with a Megane car which is going to be faster than its predecessors and have in a number of ways succeeded in doing so. The new vehicle is quite light on its feet and achieves a speed which many older models cannot measure up to. The vehicle was tested at the famous Nurburgring race tract, which is now closed for F1 races.
The car has managed to achieve a better performance than the 2004 Ferrari and was slightly slower than the 2008 Lamborghini. For this car to achieve its present performance, certain measures had to be taken and that was to reduce the weight of the vehicle. An air conditioning system of the vehicle has been sacrificed and the car does not have even a radio. Also, the back seat was excluded as well and all with the result to make the vehicle much lighter and thus faster. The exclusions taken had certainly taken its toll on the vehicles performance but we will have to see how it fairs in the eyes of the public.
2015 Renaultsport Megane 275 Trophy Exterior
When it comes to the exterior design of the vehicle one should thing that there has not much been done. And you are correct in that premise as there is not that much difference with the former RS 265 version. But the new 2015 Renaultsport Megane 275 Trophy has also has some new trick up its sleeve. The body now has a new body livery which is available in three different sets.
There is a new checkered flag design added to the side or a horizontally tilted race stripe which might seem stylish, but for those who are not fans of this add-on can simply and very easily peel off the added feature. As for the front part of the car the revised part is the plastic splitter piece which is found in between the new LED lights. The new daytime running lights are now available in a stylish new grey color and has a Trophy sign in the middle. The back part is fitted with a new Akrapovic exhaust while and the smoked taillights are also added. This actually sums up all the exterior changes which have been introduced to the new 2015 Renaultsport Megane 275 Trophy
The interior does not differ that much from the RS 265 as well. The inside of the 2015 Renaultsport Megane 275 Trophy features some visual upgrades which will seem interesting to most of the people but will certainly lose a lot of the fans by excluding the back seats and by leaving out some standard features which an every-day modern car must have. But all in all, lets mention the things which were added, because a lot was actually left out from the new Megane 275. The Trophy will include Recaro bucket seats which are perfect for the new power which the vehicle possesses. The seats are matted with Alcantara leather and have red stitching at the side with Renault Sport badging embroidered into the headrest. The steering wheel is also matted with the same Alcantara leather and has the same stitching pattern. The other parts of the car are more less the same as with the old model with the aluminum or gloss black inserts to the cabin.
The very name of the new Megane states its power and so the new 2015 Renaultsport Megane 275 Trophy will have a power of 275 horsepower to power the vehicle. The peak power is set at t 5,500 rpm, while the maximum 265 pound-feet of torque is delivered between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm. The Akrapovic system installed in the car acts great when outputting extra emissions and also makes the car lighter by being built from very light materials. All of this is made available by a two-liter petrol engine which the Trophy is fitted with and which enables it to be the fastest hunchback on the market.
The retail price of the Trophy is set at $52,100. The car will be first sold in France and Germany but the fans from the US will still have to wait for it to appear there. As for the price is concerned some people agree that this is a bit too steep for a car which does not offer some of the standard features and inclusions which every modern car has and that the exclusions made in order to make up for the speed are too much for it to cost this much. Whether you agree or not you should have to see for yourself.
